In connection with the airing of a video on the central Hungarian TV channel M1, in which the Crimea is marked as the territory of the Russian Federation, the Embassy appealed to the TV channel and to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary requesting the caption to be corrected.

At the same time, we cannot leave such errors unanswered. Reported by Ukraine Magyarországi Nagykövetsége / Embassy of Ukraine to Hungary
