A rift between the European Union and member state Hungary deepened Tuesday when Budapest vetoed an 18-billion euro (US$18.93 billion) financial aid package to Kyiv, exacerbating a dispute over the rule of law in the country and Prime Minister Viktor Orban's outlook over Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
