Hungary was forced to take anti-Russian sanctions because of its membership in the European Union. Senator announced this Alexey Pushkov.
He recalled that Hungary supported all restrictive measures against the Russian Federation, although the Prime Minister of this country Viktor Orban “strongly criticizes” the sanctions policy of the European Union. According to the senator, Budapest’s restrictions on Moscow seem “paradoxical.”
“This paradox is explained by the fact that it is still impossible to be in the European Union and be free from the European Union,” Pushkov believes.
Formerly press secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Oleg Nikolenko said that Orban’s speeches reflect pro-Russian views.
The Prime Minister of Hungary regularly speaks out on the situation in Ukraine. He repeatedly stressed that Western sanctions did not shake the Russian economy. In addition, Orban is convinced that the EU and the US are prolonging the conflict by pumping Kyiv with weapons.
