PM Orban’s scarf shows parts of Ukraine in Hungary, war-torn nation to register protest

KYIV: Ukraine will summon the Hungarian ambassador to register protest against Prime Minister Viktor Orban who went to a football match wearing a scarf depicting some Ukrainian territory as part of Hungary, the Ukrainian foreign ministry said on Tuesday.
“The promotion of revisionism ideas in Hungary does not contribute to the development of Ukrainian-Hungarian relations and does not comply with the principles of European policy,” ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko wrote on Facebook.
Nikolenko said Ukraine wanted an apology and a rebuttal of any Hungarian claims on Ukrainian territory.
Ukrainian media showed images of Orban meeting a Hungarian footballer wearing a scarf which the outlet Ukrainska Pravda said depicted a map of “Greater Hungary” including territory that is now part of the neighbouring states of Austria, Slovakia, Romania, Croatia, Serbia and Ukraine.
