Thanks to the support of the Embassy of Ukraine in Hungary, a round table on the support of Ukraine in the fight against Russian aggression was held in Budapest. The delegation also had the opportunity to meet with representatives of the Federal Chancellery of Germany, the SPD headquarters, and representatives of diplomatic missions of Ukraine.
