Hungary’s Orban criticized for ‘neutrality’ in Ukraine war

              FILE - A view of the  monument consisting of 60 contemporary shoes made of cast iron in memory of the Jewish people who were shot into the River Danube by members of the Hungarian Nazi party, the so-called Arrow-Cross Party during World War II, at the quay of the River in Budapest, Friday April 15, 2005. In a video address Friday, March 25, 2022 to a summit of EU leaders, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a frank, direct appeal to  Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban to take a clearer stance on Russia's war on Ukraine and support his besieged country.  Zelenskyy recalled that Hungary's capital of Budapest had experienced the horrors of war in the 20th century, and referred to a memorial of bronze shoes on the Danube river that pays tribute to the Hungarian Jews executed by German and Hungarian fascists in World War II.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has sought to assert Hungary’s neutrality in the war in Ukraine, even as his allies in the European Union and NATO move to assist the embattled country. Widely seen as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest ally in the EU, Orban has refused to supply Ukraine with military aid — the only one of Ukraine’s EU neighbors to take that stance.
