Hungary's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade insists that OSCE monitors should also be present in Ukraine's west after an attack on the building of the headquarters of the Transcarpathian Hungarian Cultural Association (KMKSZ) in Uzhgorod.
"The events corroborate the legitimacy of the Hungarian initiative according to which OSCE observers in Ukraine should not just be present in the eastern part of the country, but also in its western half," the ministry said in a statement.

We expect the Ukrainian authorities to guarantee the safety of Transcarpathian Hungarians," the ministry said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, in the early hours of February 4, a bottle with petrol was thrown into the window of the Hungarian center but as there was a double glazed window, only one layer was broken. No other damages were reported.
