Budapest and Kyiv’s top diplomats met in western Ukraine today, as Hungary’s position on sending aid to the war-torn nation comes under heavy scrutiny.

Hungary’s foreign minister, Peter Szijjarto, held talks with his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, in Uzhhorod — a region which is home to a large ethnic Hungarian community. This is the first time Szijjarto has visited the country since Russia launched its full-scale offensive against Kyiv, despite travelling to Moscow on several occasions.
