"Since now Ukraine not only deprives members of the minorities in Zakarpattia of their rights, but also persecutes Hungarians, we should remind it about Article 2 of the UN Declaration on the Elimination of Discrimination. We ask you to warn Ukraine, according to the UN Charter, of bearing responsibility regarding the document it has ratified," the statement says, according to the local Ukrainian news outlet Mukachevo.net.

The statement was signed by representatives of the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (RMDSZ), the Hungarian People's Party of Transylvania (EMNP), the Hungarian Civic Alliance (Fidesz), as well as representatives of the Hungarian National Council of Transylvania (EMNT) and the Szekler National Council (SZNT). The meeting of the parties and organizations took place in the city of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, [Hungarian – Kolozsvár] on October 24 with the participation of Katalin Szili, the Hungarian Prime Minister's Commissioner for autonomy.
