Hungarian chancellor will refuse to accept new sanctions against Russia

The Hungarian authorities will refuse to accept a new package of sanctions against Russia, Magyar Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said today after a meeting with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.

We see no rational reason to seek a new package of sanctions, especially when it comes to energy, the minister was quoted as saying on television in this capital.

According to Szijjarto, Hungary will not refuse to participate in the discussions, but will not consent to anything that is contrary to its national interests.

He added that the European economy is moving towards a recession, and the adoption of additional punitive measures is against the interests of the region and its peoples.

Previously, the State Secretary of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, Tamas Menzer, stated that the provisions against Russia caused more suffering to Europe than to the Eurasian giant, and called on the European Union to reconsider its policy in this area.

Following the start of the Russian special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, the West intensified sanctions pressure on Moscow, Russian assets worth hundreds of billions of dollars were frozen.

The European Union has already adopted seven packages of restrictive measures against the Russian Federation, including an embargo on coal and oil.

But all this affected, first of all, the European countries themselves, which were already facing record inflation, and now an energy crisis.
