Hungary is donating another 120 ventilators to Ukraine, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a video message posted on Facebook early Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Speaking ahead of a flight to Brussels for a meeting of European Union foreign ministers, Szijjártó said half of the ventilators will go to hospitals in Transcarpathia, an area of Ukraine with a large ethnic Hungarian population.
Szijjártó acknowledged "tensions" between Hungary and Ukraine over "violations of the Hungarian ethnic minority's rights" in the country, but said, "regardless, Hungary has always backed the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine".
EU foreign ministers will discuss the latest developments in Russia's military build-up around Ukraine at the meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council on Monday.
