Hungary’s foreign ministry on Sunday condemned a petrol bomb attack against the headquarters of ethnic Hungarian cultural association KMKSZ in Ungvar (Uzhhorod), in western Ukraine’s Transcarpathia region.
The ministry called on Ukraine’s authorities to identify the perpetrators of the attack, committed in the early hours of Sunday, and guarantee security for Ukraine Hungarians.
In its statement, the ministry also urged that the observers of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, currently monitoring developments in the country’s east, should extend their presence to western Ukraine, too.
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin also condemned the attack in a tweet on Sunday.
