Details: "Orbán left the room when Ukraine’s European dream was supported by EU leaders… He is always more than happy to be in the room with Putin though. Choosing Russia over freedom… the spirit of 1956 had left the Hungarian regime for good!" wrote Verhofstadt.

Background: Previously, it was reported that the leaders of the European Union at the summit in Brussels approved the recommendation of the European Commission to open accession talks with Ukraine and Moldova.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán confirmed that he abstained from voting for the start of negotiations on Ukraine's accession to the European Union and did not change his attitude towards this.

He deliberately left the meeting during the voting on a decision on Ukraine.
