Hungarian Prime Minister Orban: EU sanctions bring war with Russia closer

The sanctions imposed by the European Union against the Russian Federation are pushing the world to war. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stated this in an interview with radio Kossuth.

As the head of the Hungarian government noted, the sanctions actually put Europe on the position of one of the parties to the conflict. This can bring an open clash with Russia closer, so this policy of European states is very dangerous.



Orban believes that the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis should be based on peaceful negotiations, and not on regular sanctions. At the end of September, the Hungarian prime minister announced the launch of national consultations, through which he wanted to get information from the country's citizens about sanctions against Russia.

The head of the Hungarian government also called on the citizens of the country to express their opinion. If Europe changed its sanctions policy against Russia, Orban noted, prices in European countries would fall by half in a few days. Residents of the EU countries would immediately feel this on their budgets. Orban himself believes that European states do not need sanctions against Russia and expressed the same opinion in a questionnaire when he participated in national consultations.

It should be noted that Hungary remains the only EU country that openly opposes anti-Russian sanctions and consistently takes a critical position in relation to Western policy on Ukraine. However, Hungary accepted the previously introduced anti-Russian sanctions packages, as it claims, under pressure from Brussels.

    I don't understand Hungarians.
    Since when did they become so smart and independent in making decisions?

      You don't need to understand them. The EU keeps the Magyars just in case, to "move off" at the last moment. They may not succeed, but they want to.
      I have long recommended to the chief to conduct a series of tests of nuclear weapons. Significantly. Patamushta, they have already trampled all the agreements and rules. Didn't listen. In the end, we have what we have.
      And today Korotchenko on the "blue eye" "suddenly" made such an offer. Has the ice broken? Think what you want. But there is no time to dig mines, and it is high time to demonstrate "Kuzma's mother". And on the example of the destruction of the country's infrastructure, which no one feels sorry for. It's too late to feel sorry for her. Let Europe watch. For some reason, the Poles did not immediately rush to the attack with sabers. Yes, and the rest. And they could. But they don't want to. Or laziness?

        Sanctions were introduced so that there would be no turning back, otherwise they would suddenly change their minds. Same with gas pipelines.

        Rather, they don’t really want to end their existence in a nuclear frenzy, and playing an open war with Russia will lead to an understandable result, so that the Wishlist can be thrust into their "tolerant" ...

      EU sanctions bring war with Russia closer

      Russians are ready to fight first with fascist Europe and then further to the "hornet's nest" of all world wars and troubles
      It is our historical essence to break the ridges of the exceptional .. How you don’t want to fight specifically, but you’ll have to see again .. soldier These gentlemen will not leave us alone, just like that
      Such things men go on and our ancestors look at us reproachfully

      We must endure, otherwise there will be no Russia ..

        Put a minus, justified - the Russians a hundred years ago and now, as they say in Odessa - two big differences. We are miserable pygmies in comparison with our grandfathers and even more so with great-grandfathers. Look at our youth, at its main part, more closely. Who is there to fight? Neither shit nor guard.

    Orban's words are pleasant to hear, but he, like any politician, cares about the interests of his country.
    If sanctions against Russia are beneficial for Hungary, the words will change.
    Probably only Russia thinks about everyone (grain, gas, oil for those in need).

      Yes, this is probably because at first we had feudalism with relatives all over the world, then socialism with fraternal peoples again all over the world. I think this will end when the first generation born under capitalism comes to power.

    The settlement of the Ukrainian conflict is possible when the collective West realizes that the idea with the "Ukraine project" is lost and stops military assistance to the Nazi regime. After that, fulfill all the requirements put forward by Moscow and "peace and prosperity" will come, according to the act of surrender.

    Geyropa does not understand words. She always needed a powerful kick from Russia, driven to rage, in order to forget about the dreams of dividing her for a long time.

    Not everything is so simple with Orban .... Probably everyone has already understood the reason why the German industry moved and is moving to the USA, but not military production? By the way, this is how the United States "asked". A clear stump for what and in the name of what.

      Never have been, and hopefully never will be.
      "Allies of Russia" - its Army and Navy.

    These countries, and some more, are Russia's fellow travelers.

    Make no mistake, Hungary is a good cop, as is Turkey. It is worth talking with them from the point of view of their interests. War is a way for them to earn and curry favor with their overlords. Good intentions are answered with the same good intentions, and not with material concessions. Both those and others, at an opportunity, will stick a knife in the back.
