In April 2014, the Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed LPR and DPR, which declared independence after the coup d’etat in Ukraine in February of the same year. According to the latest UN data, about 13 thousand people became victims of the conflict. Kyiv has repeatedly accused the Russian Federation of intervening in the conflict in the region. Russia denies these charges. Moscow has stated more than once that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in seeing Kyiv overcome the political and economic crisis.
Ukraine will have to fight another civil war if Kyiv decides to deploy troops in Transcarpathia.
A recurring narrative about Ukrainian-Hungarian relations promoted by pro-Kremlin disinformation actors.
Ukrainian officials and authorities never indicated or attempted to introduce any form of tighter military rule or martial law specifically over Transcarpathia. In addition, the Hungarian ethnic community's representatives are not in any way advocating for breaking away with Ukraine. The latter is a Kremlin-pushed narrative to increase social tensions in Ukraine.
