It became known about the quarrel between Poland and Hungary over the conflict in Ukraine

FP: The premiers of Poland and Hungary did not agree on the special operation in Ukraine, Polish and Hungarian Prime Ministers Mateusz Morawiecki and Viktor Orban quarreled over differences of opinion regarding the Russian special operation in Ukraine.

This is reported by the correspondent of Foreign Policy magazine Amanda Coakley.

She said that their positions are diametrically opposed when assessing the conflict. “The illiberal alliance in Central Europe between Hungary and Poland is coming to an end because of the difference in attitude towards the Russian special operation,” Koakli said. She stressed that Warsaw has become one of Ukraine’s main allies when she called for strengthening sanctions against Moscow. Budapest, the correspondent claims, decided to concentrate on maintaining good relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, avoiding any significant measures.

Koakli believes that disagreements and deterioration of relations between Budapest and Warsaw may negatively affect countries that do not take seriously the rules of the European Union (EU). “This gap prompted Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki to declare that the paths of the two national conservative governments – longtime fellow travelers in their opposition to immigrants, Brussels and the rule of law — diverged”, — the author of the article added. Daniel Hegedus, an expert at the German Marshall Fund, noted in an interview with the publication that Poles no longer trust Hungarian partners.

In May of this year, it became known about Poland’s decision to end political relations with Hungary. One of the reasons was the refusal of the Hungarian side to completely break off relations with Putin.
