Ethnic Hungarians leaving Transcarpathia - Ukraine's FM

KYIV. Dec 8 (Interfax) - Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin and Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto have discussed the situation around ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia.

"We are completing the OSCE ministerial meeting on a positive note. A pleasant conversation with Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto," Klimkin wrote on Twitter.

"The number of ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia is not 150,000 anymore, and not even 100,000. People are leaving the region. Our and Hungary's common task is to support and help communities," Klimkin wrote.
