Ukraine neighbors make proposals to diffuse crisis
BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Poland’s prime minister says the European Union should “act consistently” to help solve the crisis in Ukraine, which has been shaken by two months of anti-government protests.
Donald Tusk and the leaders of the Visegrad Group, which also includes Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, met Wednesday evening in Budapest.
They also proposed lifting visa requirements for Ukrainians in an effort to help their eastern neighbor.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Ukraine, with an ethnic Hungarian minority of around 150,000, “could easily sink into anarchy.”
