Ukrainians permitted overnight transit

Hungary allowed Ukrainians wishing to return home to drive across Hungary from Hegyeshalom on the Austrian border to their home country between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 5 a.m. Thursday.

The arrangement was agreed by foreign ministers Péter Szijjártó and Dmitro Kuleba, Szijjártó announced on his Facebook page.

The agreement followed another day of chaos and unrest at the Austria-Hungary border, as Hungary is refusing entry to non-Hungarians.
