Peace in Ukraine
A Discussion with H.E. Péter Szijjártó
October 26th 2022
with Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI)
Dr. Shea interviewed H.E. Péter Szijjártó Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary, about the Russian-Ukraine invasion, the EU energy crisis, the threat of nuclear war, and the importance of Western leadership in achieving peace.
Hungary is particularly well-suited to speak on these issues -- it shares a border with Ukraine, has taken in 1.5 million Ukrainian refugees since the war began, was occupied by the Soviet Union from 1945 to 1991 and knows Russian aggression very well. It has also been under considerable strain due to the energy crisis brought about by Putin's response to Western sanctions.
