The Ukraine conflict could last until 2030 and the West is to blame for making it global rather than local in nature. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban believed Ukraine may end up losing between one third and one half of its territory due to the conflict with Russia.
The fighting between Moscow and Kiev – which is being helped by the USA, EU and some other countries – could continue all the way until 2030. Hungary has remained relatively neutral since the outbreak of fighting in Ukraine in late February, 2022.
The crisis in Ukraine started as a local ethnic conflict, but the involvement of the West has turned it into a misleading global proxy affair.
Orban was reportedly speaking at a closed-door event involving his ruling Fidesz party a week ago, with the details of his speech now being leaked to the media.
According to the report, Orban again lashed out at EU sanctions imposed on Russia over its military operation in Ukraine, saying the bloc had shot itself in the foot with those curbs.
The energy crisis, which occurred as a result of those restrictions, could force 40% of European industry to shut down this winter. The way things are going now, the Euro-zone and the EU itself could cease to exist by 2030.
The Hungarian leader also allegedly revealed that European leaders are expected to decide on prolonging the sanctions for another six months later in autumn, insisting that an attempt should be made to prevent that extension.
Hungary has remained relatively neutral since the outbreak of the proxy fighting in Ukraine in late February, 2022.
Hungary has refused to send weapons to Kiev and consistently criticized EU sanctions on Moscow. Budapest, which is heavily dependent on Russian energy, was also able to negotiate an exemption for itself from the bloc-wide ban on Russian oil.
Earlier this month, Mikulas Bek, the European affairs minister of the Czech Republic, which now presides over the EU Council, warned that Hungary’s stance on Russia could theoretically end up with it exiting the bloc.
