During a meeting with the UN Deputy Commissioner for Human Rights, Brands Kheris, Szijjarto said that “while 1,300 Hungarian schools and kindergartens accept refugee children and pupils from Ukraine , 99 Hungarian primary and secondary schools in Ukraine are at risk of being closed due to Ukrainian education law.

The Law on Education was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada in 2017. It stipulates that the language of the educational process in educational institutions is the state language, but several subjects can be taught in two or more languages.

Hungary was among the first countries to criticize the new law. Six years ago, Budapest began threatening to block Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration because of this.
