Hungarian PM urges EU to revise anti-Russian sanctions

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for a review of European sanctions restrictions against Russia. According to the politician, in order to preserve European industry, it is necessary to solve the problem of the energy crisis caused by the confrontation with Moscow.


The head of the Hungarian government agreed with the statement of French President Emmanuel Macron that the cost of the Ukrainian conflict on different shores of the Atlantic is not the same.

The Republic of Hungary occupies a special position in relations between the European Union and Russia, which is explained by the significant political independence of the country's government and its close mutually beneficial ties with Russia.

Budapest strongly opposes restrictive EU measures against the Russian Federation and persistently lobbies for itself to be exempted from European energy sanctions. The fact is that the Hungarians receive inexpensive Russian gas and last year signed contracts with Gazprom until 2036 for the supply of blue fuel bypassing the territory of Ukraine. In addition, Rosatom participates in the construction of new power units at the Hungarian Paks nuclear power plant and supplies the plant with nuclear fuel.

The Danubian state stands out against the background of the rest of Europe in its approach to the Ukrainian crisis. In particular, Hungary does not supply the Kyiv regime with weapon and denies NATO allies the use of its territory for the transfer of military supplies to Ukraine. In addition, Hungary refused to participate in the European mission of training Ukrainian military personnel - EUMAM Ukraine.

Budapest is adamant in matters of providing financial assistance to Ukraine and its entry into NATO. Thus, the Hungarians blocked at the EU level the allocation of a macroeconomic tranche to Kyiv in the amount of 18 billion euros. Along with this, Hungary systematically vetoes the convening of meetings of the Ukraine-NATO commission, demanding that the Kyiv authorities stop violating the rights of ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia.

    The Hungarians and I still have to carry out demarcation in the Carpathians. In the former territory of the failed Nazi state.

      well said about demarcation, but I think Orban is more interested in the economy within the modern borders of Hungary, and not in 1,254 million extra mouths. And Transcarpathia will be fed by the Ukrainian People's Republic with its capital in Lvov and which is part of the union state of Russia and Belarus.

      Hungary is not at all an ally. They are forced to adhere to an approach to sanctions that run counter to the EU line. Historically, since the CMEA, the country's infrastructure is entirely tied to supplies from the USSR-Russia. To a lesser extent, this is observed in Austria. The rest of the countries, albeit with creaking, suffering losses, they can refuse energy carriers.

      Hungary, Serbia are "situational allies", and Belarus is an ally, a member of the Union.

        Well as an ethnic Rusyn from Serbia, i can ensure you, Serbia is your real Allies and not "situational allies" Almost 90% of Serbia understands Putin and his actions over Ukraine. Ukraine also tried to perform several terrorist acts on Serbia as well but thankfully they failed since Putin stopped them. Putin is our great ally and saver of our Holy Land of Kosovo taken by Albanian fundamentalist and NATO animals. We know same criminal orgnazation is behind both Kosovar Albanians and Nazi Bandero Ukraine - the NATO and US Establishment!

          but I don’t say anything about the peoples here, I know that 90% of the Serbs support Russia, by the way, my relatives are Poles, and so there are also quite a few people for Russia, but Poland positions itself as our enemy.

            Well speaking of our politicians i kinda disagreed with President Vucic about EU integrations of Serbia, but at least he thinks with his own mind and don't allow West to order him what to do. Recently Vucic was really pissed off because of West and EU Double Standards over Kosovo issue, so it looks like Vucic will quit anything related to EU, so, i did support Vucic's recent move. I can ensure even our government trust more to Russia and China than to the West, as West is hypocrite as hell.

      I am from Serbia, and i can agree. President Vucic and Hungarian PM Viktor Orban and Belarus president Lukashenko are the only leaders on European soil who think with their own head, think of our own interest and don't blindy follow Western russophobic agenda.

    And we must pay tribute to this is happening under enormous pressure and blackmail from the EU. It is possible that, in addition to taking care of its economy, the position of Hungary is also influenced by the presence of ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia.

    For all those who have unsubscribed, let me remind you: all decisions in the EU are taken unanimously, with the right of veto for each country. This means that Hungary honestly voted for all the sanctions packages. By the way, all sanctions, in my opinion, are introduced for a year, then they need to be extended. And if the Hungarians have tough nuts, they can veto everything that does not suit them. And if you're not strong, what's the point of performing?

      It's all theater. Orban simply gives legitimacy to the actions of our oilmen, who are supplying NATO countries with hydrocarbons from the last forces. For a moment: countries supplying Ukraine with weapons and mercenaries. EVERYTHING, we applaud and kiss Orban on the lower back.

    Orban is a good cop. Let's believe him.
    And where does the oil get to NATO troops in Ukraine?
