Hungary has lifted its objections to a 50-million euro aid package for Ukraine during an emergency EU summit. The aid is crucial for Ukraine, as its support from the US is currently frozen. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban used the summit as an opportunity to advocate for cash-strapped farmers. With the European elections approaching, the current crises are likely to influence voters’ opinions. The outcome for Ukraine may have been different if the summit had taken place after June. Ukraine’s prospects remain uncertain as Europe prepares for the possibility of a more Russia-friendly US administration.
