Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said that NATO is moving toward a direct military confrontation with Russia, according to a report by Hungarian news outlet Digi24 on May 10.

He reiterated that Hungary would not contribute to NATO’s military fund for Ukraine, which amounts to EUR 100 billion ($108 billion), nor participate in training Ukrainian troops.

“NATO has crossed its own red lines and is taking significant steps toward a conflict that could risk starting WWIII," said Szijjarto.

He added that NATO members are now treating the war in Ukraine as their own, a stance Budapest remains strongly opposed to.

“Those who consider this war as our own are advocating for a continuation of the conflict until Ukraine triumphs," the minister added.

Szijjarto said that diplomacy is "the only realistic path" to ending Russia’s war against Ukraine.
