Ukraine should urgently become a member of the European Union. So says adviser to the Prime Minister of Hungary on political issues Balazs Orban.

Orban believes that the rest of the EU members are obliged to use their influence so that the commission makes a decision on EU accession in favor of Ukraine as soon as possible, writes Bloomberg.

“We hope that this (Ukraine’s accession to the EU. – Note. ed.) will happen as soon as possible. And member countries should put pressure on the commission to speed up this process,” Orban said.

However, Orban added that Hungary is based on a position of interconnection, so Budapest plans to maintain friendly contacts with Russia as well.

Also, according to Orban, in addition to Ukraine, Hungary should also become a member of the European Union in the very near future.
