Hungarian PM Slams European Union Over Sanctions Against Russia


Budapest: Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban slammed the European Union (EU) over the sanctions imposed by the EU on Russia.

Delivering a speech in the western city of Zalaegerszeg, Orban accused Brussels of “shooting” at Hungary in the garb of sanctions.

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Hungary has carefully contoured its relations with Russia as it depends significantly on Russian energy.

“Let us not worry about those who are shooting at Hungary hidden in the shadows, somewhere from the watchtowers of Brussels,” the Hungarian Prime Minister said.

Reportedly, although Hungary voted with his fellow EU member states for the sanctions, Orban has regularly protested the damage they have done to the country’s economy.
