Abstract. The article highlights and characterizes current trends in Hungary’s domestic and foreign policy, which began due to Russian Federation military invasion to Ukraine. The following key decisions of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orbán were analyzed: imposing a state of emergency, strengthening humanitarian and economic influence in the Transcarpathian region, maintaining Hungary’s energy ties with Russian Federation in the context of strengthening EU sanctions against Russia, adopted in the context of responding to the military-political situation in Eastern Europe and countering modern humanitarian and economic challenges.

With the beginning of the active phase of the Russian Federation’s war against Ukraine, most European countries were forced to adjust their foreign policy priorities. Thus, in particular, the EU countries that are in the immediate vicinity to the conflict zone – especially the region of Central and Eastern Europe (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, the Baltic States), spoke in support of Ukraine. This course of Kyiv’s allies in practice meant providing financial and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, armaments and military-technical supply, as well as assistance in overcoming the social and economic consequences of hostilities.
