Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in a sprawling interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the only path to ending the war in Ukraine would be the reelection of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency.

In the interview, posted Wednesday on Carlson’s page on X, formerly known as Twitter, the nationalist Orbán praised Trump’s foreign policy while blasting President Joe Biden’s administration and its approach to the war.

Although Trump faces criminal charges for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 election, returning the former president to office would be “the only way out” of the conflict, Orbán argued, calling any suggestion that Ukraine could defeat Russia “a lie.”

“The Russians are far stronger, far more numerous than the Ukrainians,” Hungary’s prime minister said. “Call back Trump. … Trump is the man who can save the Western world.”

Orbán’s view of the state of the war conflicts with how U.S. and Ukrainian officials have characterized the invaded country’s prospects for taking back Russian-occupied territory.
