Hungary wants Brussels to give a clear and forthcoming answer concerning “Ukraine’s latest serious blackmail against Hungary”, Fidesz MEP Tamás Deutsch said on Saturday.
Referring to reports of an alleged plan to blow up the Druzhba pipeline carrying Russian oil to Hungary, the head of the ruling party’s EP delegation said in a video statement that the “serious and outrageous case of extortion” must be clarified, adding that his group of MEPs had turned to the European Commission with written questions.
Deutsch referred to an alleged meeting in February in which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy may have suggested blowing up the pipeline as well as a message sent by the chief executive of Ukrtransnafta, the company that manages oil transportation operations through the Ukrainian pipeline network, setting Hungary conditions for keeping oil flowing through the pipeline. He also said he had received a message from “the Brussels bureaucracy” that the transit of crude oil to Hungary could well be stopped.
He noted that the pipeline is key to the oil supply of central Europe and Hungary. The Fidesz MEP said Brussels had remained “silent on the matter”, adding that it was insupportable that no answer had been forthcoming about whether “the direct collaborators of European Commission leaders” had actually proposed to the Ukrainians the “grave act of threatening Hungary’s sovereignty” in order to exert political pressure.
András Rácz, a Hungarian Russia expert, said it is not surprising that a tired and overworked Zelenskyy makes drastic comments to one of his ministers. Even though some leaders of the USA and Moscow talked about using nuclear weapons in Vietnam and Afghanistan, nothing happened. However, the Ukrainian president’s statements might be useful for the Russians if something happens with the Druzhba pipeline close to the Russian-Ukrainian border. He added Hungary should start detaching of the Russian oil delivery system because it has uncertainties, hvg.hu wrote.
While I’m still very much rooting for Ukraine to kick Russia’s six, unfortunately, the more I learn about Ukraine and, in particular, Zelensky’s regime and associates, the less I like them.
If Hungary wants to buy oil/gas from the dependable supplier Russia, no foreign entity has the right to force Hungary to change the supplier. Germany lost more senior citizens during the last winter than during COVID. The cause is the lack of oil/gas from Russia. The citizens of Germany were forced to keep their thermostat at 59 degrees. Germany sacrificed the lives of its citizens for the sake of the Ukrainian war. It is time to elect a different government in Germany.
The Bulgarian/Serbian pipeline must be finished, definitely before the winter.
With Maria on Teresa speaking for Hu Gary, it is already ruined by her, such lies from Madame Putin
Maria on Teresa tips her cards with her “59” comment, because no European country or person would use fahrenheit, ever. Stay out of our business, troll, fix your own country and stop talking trash about ours!
Dear Gabor Zsa Zsa, are you really so naive. All one has to do is go to Outlook, Microsoft and request conversion. That is exactly what I did.
Returned to Outlook requested conversion to Celsius, it is 15.
Victor’s closet, please tell me what Hungary received from the EU that you are so grateful? Reading the news, the EU has not financed Hungary for many years because Hungary was and is determined to keep its sovereignty. The EU wish to interfere in the internal affairs of the country, e.g., forcing mutilation of children onto the country. The EU also complains about lack of freedom of the press, well, there is more freedom of the press and freedom of speech in Hungary than in the west. Just think, the FBI spied on Catholics attending mass and parents attending school board meetings. In the EU, there are laws what you can say or not say. Hungarians have more freedom than anyone else in the so called “civilized world.
So, please let me know what is so great about EU dictatorship?
