The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine appealed to the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Security Service of Ukraine with a request to open proceedings due to an illustration in the Kárpátalja newspaper issued by the Hungarian community of Zakarpattia.
On the front page of the newspaper, there was displayed a map on which a number of the territories of Ukraine were assigned to Hungary. This was stated by the Deputy Foreign Minister Yevhen Bozhok.
“The front page of the Kárpátalja newspaper of the public association ‘Society of Hungarian Culture of Zakarpattia’ under the slogan ‘Hungarian, arise!’ illustrated a number of territories of Ukraine as the part of Hungary. Separatism! The GPU and the SBU must initiate proceedings. I have signed the papers,” Bozhok said.
