Ukraine dismisses Hungary’s peace proposal: “based on Russian narrative”

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba told his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto during talks in Washington on Wednesday (10) that any initiatives to try to end Moscow’s war in Ukraine should not be based on Russian narratives.

The meeting on the sidelines of the NATO summit comes after Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited Kiev, Moscow and Beijing for talks he called a “peace mission”.

The Hungarian leader, who has regularly opposed military aid to Ukraine, proposed during his trip to Kiev that President Volodymyr Zelensky consider a ceasefire in the 28-month war to speed up a peace process, an idea rejected by Ukraine.

Kuleba told X that he briefed Szijjarto during the negotiations on the battlefield situation and preparations for developments at the Ukraine summit held in Switzerland in June.

“In this context, I emphasized that no peace initiative can be based on Russia’s narratives,” he said.

Kiev authorities have rejected the idea of ​​a ceasefire, saying it would only lead to more Russian attacks in the future. They have said there is no alternative to Kiev’s plan for a settlement, which requires Russian troops to leave Ukrainian territory.

In response to Orban’s ceasefire initiative, President Vladimir Putin reiterated his demands that Kiev abandon its NATO aspirations and give up four Ukrainian regions partially occupied by Russia. Kyiv says that would amount to surrender.

Ukraine is working with its allies to prepare a comprehensive plan in time for a second peace summit it said it hopes will take place before the end of the year. Russian representatives who were excluded from the Switzerland meeting could be invited to attend, Kiev said.
