The Ambassador of Ukraine to NATO spoke about this in Brussels before the planned meeting with the Ambassador of Hungary to NATO, Ukrinform reports.

"There is one particular ally whose behavior worries me. This concerns an open statement made by the Hungarian Foreign Minister about the intention to block Ukraine in the European Union. I haven’t heard the Hungarian Minister’s position on NATO,” Prystaiko said.

"I hope that our Hungarian colleagues understand that discussing bilateral issues at the level of such an important security organization as NATO is not entirely appropriate," the ambassador added.

Earlier, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó promised that he would initiate consideration of the issue of violation of the Association Agreement by Ukraine because of the law on education during the next meeting of the Council of the Ukraine-EU Association that will be held in December.

Recently, the Hungarian government decided to block all further decisions of the European Union aimed at rapprochement of the EU with Ukraine.
