If the European Union really wants to include Ukraine in its membership, it will have to raise an additional amount of €150 to €190 billion," he said in an interview with TV2.

In the event of this country's admission to the EU, Ukraine will apply for assistance in the amount that is now given to all Central European countries, including Hungary, he said.

"We do not want to facilitate the transfer of money to Ukraine that should belong to the Hungarians," TASS quoted Orban as saying.

Earlier, the Hungarian Prime Minister stressed that Budapest will at any time "press the handbrake" in the process of negotiations between the European Union and Ukraine on membership, if it threatens Hungarian national interests.
