In the latest round of sanctions, the European Union would sanction 71 individuals who actively support Russia’s war against Ukraine, as proposed by High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell. Hungary would, however, remove three people from the list, according to independent sources, Szabad Európa reported.
The three persons whose sanctioning Hungary would not allow are as follows:
Russian Deputy Minister for Defence
Deputy Minister of Defence Tatiana Viktorovna Shevtsova is responsible for the budget and financial activities of the Russian Ministry of Defence. This means that she decides on the salaries of Russian soldiers fighting in Ukraine and the financing of the war. This is Josep Borrell’s justification for sanctioning her. The United Kingdom, Canada and Australia have already put Shevtsova on the sanctions list.
Head of Belarusian Railways
Vladimir Mikhailovich Morozov is the head of the Belarusian Railways. The company provides the link between Russia and Belarus, and as such is helping Russian war logistics, says the reason for the sanctions. Canada already has Morozov on its sanctions list.
President deporting Ukrainian children
Rustam Nurgaliyevich Minnikhanov is the president of Tatarstan, one of the Russian republics. In his role, he facilitates the illegal and forced deportation of Ukrainian children to camps in Tatarstan, including the Miras camp in the Zelenodolsky District. This is a violation of the rights of Ukrainian children and of Ukrainian law, the High Commissioner said in his statement. Minnikhanov was previously placed on the US sanctions list.
Not the first time not agreeing with sanctions
Similar attempts have been made by the Hungarian government in the past. Last summer, there was a furore when, in the face of a Hungarian veto, the EU finally refused to put Patriarch Kirill, a staunch supporter of Putin and war, on the sanctions list.
The government has also tried to get several Russian oligarchs removed from the EU sanctions list. However, these attempts have failed.
This is further proof that Victor Orban in fact is not a real person but is a robot under remote control from a special facility in the Kremlin.
It would be really interesting to know the reasons behind objecting these three sanctions. Now we can only guess that these three people who are and have been committing war crimes have some strong connections to Hungarian government. I hope i am wrong.
Where is the madame President, you know, the pro family one . . .
There is a historical precedent of saving the children. During WWII, there was mandatory evacuation of children out London, even as far as Canada. Russia did the same. It seems that it was more honorable act on behalf of Russia to evacuate children of the enemy. Many children have been returned already. Larry has never seriously studied history. It is surprising that Zelensky made no move to save children from contested areas.
Hahahahaha! Russia saving children, that’s rich. You really have to be a grade F propagandist to throw that argument out there.
Anyway, the Hungarian nation will be shamed for a century after Viky is done with it. Truly becoming a shithole country. Shame, once again when Hungary had so much potential, a bunch of idiotic, self serving leaders chose the wrong side. There should be a new verse in the Hymnus that speaks of Hungary always on the wrong side of the war.
I’d laugh too if it wasn’t at the same time one of saddest thing that Russian war aggression attack has lead to hundreds or even thousands of children losing their lives or their parents. Many children will never return. Only because of the actions of Russian war-mongering imperialism.
The question for the cynics, were the children saved and returned alive? The answer is yes. It does not matter why Russia saved the children, the result counts, many more children are alive without horrible injuries. Most EU countries do not care for their children. These countries are quite happy to have children mutilated. On the other hand, Hungary loves and protects her children. Well done FIDESZ.
@MVT, read the comments of the people and then connect the dots. Please listen to people, I believe you also can do.
