Hungary once again blocking Ukraine-NATO Commission
There will be no meeting in April of the Ukraine-NATO Commission at the ministerial level as a result of its blocking by Hungary.
The Commission will not meet on the sidelines of NATO foreign ministers' meeting scheduled for April 27, UNIAN learned from its diplomatic sources.
It should be noted that in February this year, Hungary has already blocked the meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission at the ministerial level.

As UNIAN reported earlier, in March, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarjto demanded that Ukraine amend its newly-adopted education law, which he deems a threat to a Hungarian minority living in Ukraine, and postpone its implementation until 2023, otherwise Budapest will block meetings important for Ukraine at the level of the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
In particular, the minister noted that Hungary would be blocking the Ukraine-NATO Commission's meeting at the ministerial level in April, and in July - at the level of the heads of state and government during the NATO summit in Brussels.
