Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has once again said that he believes it was a mistake to open negotiations on Ukraine’s accession to the European Union, as Ukraine is not yet "ready".

Details: Part of Orbán’s speech focused on his vision for the European Union. He predicted "serious political battles" in the EU in the coming months.

According to Orbán, these "battles" include budget changes and "rectifying the mistaken promise" to start EU membership negotiations with Ukraine given that "Ukraine is currently light years away from the European Union".

"We are resisting the machinations of Brussels bureaucrats, we are resisting an invasion of migrants, we are resisting gender propaganda, we are resisting the illusions of war, we are resisting Ukraine’s unqualified membership of the EU, we are resisting green ideologies that increasingly appear to have more in common with communism and even Jacobinism," Orbán claimed.

He also said Hungary should change the EU rather than leave it, because without "radical change", he believes the EU will "simply fall apart" .

"We don’t want Europe and Hungary to turn into an open-air museum," Orbán added.

Previously: Hungary has recently ramped up its threats to block the start of Ukraine’s EU membership negotiations due to alleged infringements of the rights of the Hungarian-speaking minority in Ukraine.

The Hungarian government has also launched "consultations" with Hungarian citizens that will focus on their support for Ukraine’s EU membership.
