Hungarian radicals from Jobbik party discredit the legitimacy of Zakarpattia being a part of Ukraine’s territory. They have been making appeals to ‘put the historical record straight’ and have Zakarpattia territories join Hungary.
Nationalistic and ultra-radical sentiment have completely taken over Hungarian people’s minds. World Federation of Hungarians with its leader, M. Patrubány, the member of Hungarian nationalistic party Jobbik, has created a website called ‘National News Network’ (nemzetihirhalo.hu). On this website, they post news blocks entitled ‘How Hungarian Government and Parliament abandoned Zakarpattia in 1991.’ The author of this document is one of the famous Hungarian historians. These publications commemorate 24th anniversary of signing of the Treaty on Friendship and Cooperation between Hungary and Ukraine.
