New details have been released about the US intelligence leak that occurred a few weeks ago. The US intelligence service seems to have eavesdropped on several of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s private conversations. One of the recordings mentioned the sabotage against an oil pipeline that delivers crucial resources to Hungary.
The fresh leaks talk about numerous of the Ukrainian president’s plans, which could intensify the conflict even further. For instance, Zelenskyy was recorded saying that the Ukrainian army should occupy Russian towns along the border. This move would aim to increase his country’s leverage in the war. He also suggested using long-range missile systems to attack military targets within Russia’s borders, writes Világgazdaság.
According to the leaks, in a February meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Yuliya Svyrydenko, the Ukrainian president suggested blowing up the Druzhba pipeline that runs through the territory of Ukraine and supplies Hungary with much-needed oil imported from Russia. His reasoning behind this drastic measure was that this would “ruin the industry of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán”.
According to the notes of the intelligence officers, however, this was just a sudden impulsive thought and not an elaborate plan. At this time Zelenskyy has been dealing with a year of constant war and was indignant at Hungary’s behaviour regarding the conflict. This is the reason why he was caught contemplating such dramatic measures. Ultimately, it was deemed a personal note made out of anger, not an action he actually planned on committing.
If Ukraine did sabotage the pipeline, that would have drastic consequences not only for the country’s relations with the West and NATO but also for the economy of Hungary. So far Zelenskyy and his government have enjoyed widespread support from the overwhelming majority of Western states. If he was to start implementing decisions that could negatively affect members of the NATO alliance, this could easily change. The last time a similar event happened was in September 2022, when unknown perpetrators blew up the Nord Stream pipeline.
The consequences of such an attack would be disastrous for the Hungarian industry and economy as well. Eight million tonnes of Russian oil flows through the Druzhba every year from Russia to Hungary. If this abruptly came to a stop, that would bring an end to one of the country’s most significant energy supply routes. The pipeline’s capacities would be near impossible to replace in the short term, which would cause the industry of the country to come crashing down.
Where are the comments of those anti FIDESZ, anti Orban, pro globalist and pro EU comments? It seems that Zelensky’s plan was and is acceptable to them. Prime Minister Orban was right in staying neutral. Zelensky and the Ukrainians cannot be trusted, this regime oppressed the ethnic Hungarians and other ethnic groups that ended up in Ukraine. The construction of pipe line through Bulgaria and Serbia is a great idea.
Calm down, Ivan. Nothing happened. Putin will get his oil blood money.
Zelensky wordt nog een luis in de pels van de Europese en Amerikaanse politieke elite!!!
Dunno about “anti FIDESZ, anti Orban, pro globalist and pro EU” commenters but I read from the article that there was no plan. Just need to read the text and not just the click bait heading.
Dear commentators, the reason Zelensky did not carry out his outlandish plan is because Hungary is in the EU and Hungary is in NATO. Zelensky feared retaliation. Zelensky worried that the EU would cut it financial support. Yes, I do not have high opinion of leaders that put the lives of their people and their country in jeopardy simply for the sake of joining a club. Zelensky is still Biden’s puppet and neither ever speak of a peace treaty.
Itt seems some people here can’t read, or they refuse to see what’s in the article.
There was NO plan! NOTHING was PLANNED!
If the said “US Intelligence leak” is ACTUALLY true, and not a faked one, even then it wouldn’t be unimaginable that Zelenskiy was in a state of rage and it was rage that contributed to that MOMENTARY silly idea. How many such, or similar ideas, do other world leaders have when they’re in a state of rage, especially in wartime.
Anyone who thinks about for a minute can see that that was NOT a plan. Let’s just move on and forget that “bait heading”.

The US is running this show – how could it be a leak. Z is not worried about EU money- the US has sent almost 200 BILLION compared to 20 billion EU. He is not going to anything that makes the Biden family look bad- they could make it look like Z came up with it all by himself .
Does anyone know if hunter is still getting his 50k a month Birisma salary, now that the big guy is back in charge. Next your going to tell me no Hungarians know what was going on in Romania.
