Furthermore, Hungary will not receive Russian oil for at least one more week. MOL has not answered the questions of index.hu in the issue.
Index.hu reported about an oil delivery stoppage in Ukraine concerning Hungarian deliveries at 3 pm today. But at 5 pm they wrote, based on industrial sources, that the Ukrainian segment of the pipeline works again.
According to the news outlet, the pipeline’s operation was halted today due to technical difficulties instead of military attacks. Igor Demin, a spokesman of the Russian news agency TASS, said Ukrainian partners reported on a suspension of deliveries on the Novgorod–Volinsky–Brogyij segment of the Druzhba pipeline in the afternoon.
He added that Hungary has not been receiving oil for three days and will not receive it for at least a week. Meanwhile, Czechia and Slovakia get the contracted amount. From industrial sources index learned that oil delivery stoppages to Hungary have become frequent towards Hungary recently due to technical reasons because of the faults of the pumps.
The news outlet sent some questions to Hungarian oil and gas giant MOL but has not received an official answer yet.
Today the Ukrainian critical infrastructure suffered serious attacks again. As a result, there will be electricity blackouts in many parts of Ukraine in the next 24 hours.
The most important considerations now are securing Hungary’s energy supply and bringing down the “sanctions surcharge” on energy, the prime minister added.
