“We have all faced gruelling challenges recently. Challenges that have fundamentally rearranged our normal lives, starting with the health crisis caused by the pandemic. At that time, we may not have guessed what difficulties we would face in the future. More than a year ago, the Russian-Ukrainian war began, which has largely defined our lives ever since. At the same time as the outbreak of war, the Hungarian government started organizing humanitarian aid. The care of refugees is still continuous. The Hungarian government bears responsibility for the fate of Hungarians living outside its borders”,

she highlighted.
