BUDAPEST, November 22. /TASS/. The EU strategy regarding the conflict in Ukraine has failed, Russia cannot be defeated and therefore the EU must switch to a new plan of action, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in Zurich.
The Prime Minister pointed out that Hungary condemned Russia’s actions regarding Ukraine from the start, but the Western reaction to these actions was wrong.
"What was our strategy? The Ukrainians [would] fight and win at the frontline, and the Russians [would] lose. What is the reality? The Ukrainians fight and die. What have we come to? Russia will not lose, and nothing will change in its policy. Therefore, we must face the reality. We must switch to Plan B," Orban said, adding that the EU currently has no such plan.
Instead of reviewing its strategy, Brussels proposes to continue military and financial aid to Kiev.
"However, it is totally pointless to simply send money to the Ukrainians, it would lead to nothing," the Prime Minister said, according to Magyar Nemzet.
Orban underscored that the only way to "stop the pointless death of people" is to immediately cease fire and to begin peace talks in order to achieve a settlement agreement for Ukraine.
