Budapest (The Times Groupe)- Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban declared a state of emergency on Tuesday to allow his country to respond to the security and economic threats posed by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Viktor Orban said on his Facebook page that his government was taking measures to address the issue since it was impossible to predict when the conflict in Ukraine would end.

Orban said details of the state of emergency would be announced on Wednesday.

According to the prime minister, the measures are in line with the constitution and will take effect on Wednesday morning.

The government must take immediate steps to be able to project the country against threats emanating from the war, he said.

Hungary should remain out of the war because the crisis threatens both the economy and physical security of the country.
