The prime minister of Poland held what she described as “honest and difficult talks” yesterday with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, in a Warsaw meeting that was seen as part of Orbán's efforts to show he has not turned his back on Western alliance partners, the Associated Press reported.

Poland’s Ewa Kopacz, a strongly anti Russian leader, said she expressed her displeasure over Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Budapest on Tuesday. European unity and “the condemnation of aggression is a fundamental thing for us,” Kopacz said at joint press conference with Orbán. She compared the fate of Ukraine today to Poland and Hungary during the Soviet era and recalled how Soviet troops crushed the Hungarian uprising of 1956, AP said.

Orbán reportedly did not comment on his relationship with Russia, but said he supported the cease-fire agreement for Ukraine hammered out last week in Minsk.
