Rescue operations in Kiev ended Wednesday after a Russian missile attack on Monday. The shelling of the city's civilian infrastructure killed 34 people, including five children, and injured more than 120, authorities said.

Orban's mission

Reuters, writing about Magyar's visit to Kyiv, recalled that Orban, a critic of Western military aid to Ukraine and the leader European Union countrieswhich has “the warmest relations with Russia”, visited Kiev and Moscow last week with a so-called “peace mission”. Then he visited Moscow and met with Putin, which was criticized by some European countries. Then Orban flew to Chin.

– The prime minister is allowed to travel and pretend to create peace. But we believe in action, not three trips around the world. We are different – Magyar assessed.

Magyar, whose party won almost 30 percent of the votes in Hungary in the June elections to the European Parliamentsaid that Orban should have visited Kiev earlier, but one of the reasons for his absence was the differences between Kiev and Budapest over the rights of the Hungarian minority in Ukraine.
