The presidents of Hungary and Bulgaria spoke out against sending NATO troops to Ukraine

Supplying new weapons to Kiev and sending a NATO contingent to Ukraine will not lead to a settlement of the conflict, Bulgarian President Roumen Radev and Hungarian President Tamás Szujok said.

“We … are convinced that it is necessary to find diplomatic instruments (to resolve the conflict) as soon as possible … It will not happen with more weapons, by sending troops from NATO member states to Ukraine,” Radev said following a meeting with his Hungarian counterpart in Budapest, Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) quoted him as saying.

As BNR notes, Szujok also spoke in favour of a diplomatic settlement of the conflict in Ukraine.

Earlier on Thursday, Radev had already said that the time had come to resolve the conflict in Ukraine through diplomacy.

Moscow has repeatedly indicated that it is ready for negotiations, but Kiev has legislated a ban on them. The West has been urging Russia to negotiate, the readiness for which Moscow has shown, but the West ignores Kiev’s constant refusals of dialogue. Earlier, the Kremlin said that there are no prerequisites for the situation in Ukraine to turn peaceful now, the absolute priority for Russia is to achieve the goals of the special operation; at the moment, this is possible only through military means. As the Kremlin said, the situation in Ukraine can move to a peaceful course if the de facto situation and new realities are taken into account, all of Moscow’s demands are well known.
