Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has expressed "concern" about Ukraine's prospects of joining the European Union, arguing that "difficult questions" need to be answered before integration talks can begin. This was reported by the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Oleg Nikolenko.
Orban said that the European Union will face inevitable questions about the country's state of war during talks in Brussels on Ukraine's future.
He claims that the EU cannot consider Ukraine's accession without having full information about its size and population.
"To accept a country into the EU without knowing its parameters would be unprecedented... So I think we need to answer very long and difficult questions before we actually decide to start accession negotiations," he added.
