Return of MIA Office to Uzhhorod Is a Positive Step

The point of resuming the work of MIA office in Uzhhorod is to continue active negotiations with the Hungarian community in this region. MIA leaders are taking careful steps aimed at developing the existing dialogue and making it productive.

Regular presence of MIA in the region is crucial for maintaining direct contact with the Hungarian community. And in the context of the complex problems that lately arose between Kyiv and Budapest, this is a proper step. Hungary's position aimed at stalling Ukraine's European integration is inadequate. This knot has to be untangled.
