The Hungarian government started a billboard campaign depicting the EU sanctions against Russia as a bomb that destroys the country’s economy. The administration launched the campaign to promote its national consultation concerning the sanctions. Tomorrow a two-day-long EU summit is to start. To prepare for the government decided to hold an extra session today.
As MTI reported, the Hungarian government has met for an all-day session ahead of an upcoming two-day EU summit in Brussels, which will have on its agenda “topics of paramount importance for Hungary’s energy security”, the prime minister’s press chief said on Wednesday.
Bertalan Havasi said the most recent EU proposal aimed at introducing a cap on gas prices “would equal an embargo on gas imports for Hungary in its current form”. “Brussels’s ill-advised sanctions are already putting a nearly unbearable burden on the Hungarian economy and families,” he said, therefore Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will urge the EU to reconsider its sanctions policy and “putting it on a reasonable basis” at the summit on Thursday and Friday.
