(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) VIENNA, Jan 27 (KUNA) -- Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stated Friday that Western countries have become part of the Russia-Ukraine war through their continued military and financial support for Kyiv.
'If you send weapons and finance the full-year's budget of one of the warring parties and you mull sending more arms, ever more modern ones, then you can say what you want, you're part of the war,' Orban told the state Radio.
