A new decree published in today's issue of Magyar Közlöny (Hungarian Gazette) allows the deployment of NATO Response Forces in the western part of Hungary, according to a report by news site telex.hu.
According to the decree, NATO troops may be deployed in Baranya County, Fejér County, Komárom-Esztergom County, Győr-Moson-Sopron County, Somogy County, Tolna County, Vas County, Veszprém County, Zala County, the area of Pest County west of the Danube, and in parts of Budapest west of the Danube.
The government decree also allows NATO Response Forces to transit Hungary by land and air.
On the other hand, the decree bans arms shipments to Ukraine from transiting Hungary, stating that the country is "pursuing a stricter national policy to protect its essential security interests". However, arms shipments to other allied countries may pass through Hungarian territory, and the decree also allows the transport of relief supplies (such as personal protective equipment, first aid supplies, and fuel) to Ukraine.
