Hungary is getting EUR 300 million in additional European Union funding in support for its efforts to assist the refugees from the war in Ukraine, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister's Office, told public media on Friday.

Speaking after the inauguration of the renovated Somló Castle, noting the funding shows Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's "significant influence" advocating for Hungary.

The monies, equivalent to over HUF 100 bln, will be "a big help" to keep Hungarians from shouldering the cost of the war, he added.

Gulyás noted that Orbán had written to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen a little more than a week earlier concerning funding for assistance being provided to the refugees.
