The Russian media frame Hungary as the friendliest of countries, portraying it as closer to Moscow than to Brussels, and emphasising how Russia and Hungary collaborate in pressuring Ukraine.
The coronavirus pandemic has triggered responses from all affected states. Different countries have taken different measures. Some were purely medical, others regulated the employment and labour law, the activities of financial institutions, state institutions, the education system, essential services, transportation and so on.
