Putin's friend Orban complained about high prices and said he would urge the EU to reconsider sanctions against Russia
Orban complained that his country was suffering economically because of the imposed sanctions against the terrorist country Russia.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has a pro-Russian stance, said that the summit of EU member states will urge the leaders of the union to reconsider the sanctions against Russia.
Putin's friend wrote about this on his Facebook page.
The head of the Ughur government complained that his country was suffering economically due to the sanctions imposed against the terrorist country Russia. Orban called the EU anti-Russian sanctions themselves “failed”.
“For the Hungarian economy and Hungarian families, the false sanctions of Brussels are already an almost unbearable burden. At the EU summit, which starts tomorrow, we will call for a rethinking of the policy of military sanctions and its transfer to a rational basis,” he said in a message.
It is worth noting that the EU summit will be held on October 20-21. The main topic is the situation on the European energy market, which has developed due to Russian aggression against Ukraine. Also, the participants of the meeting will discuss ways to overcome price pressure and protect the most vulnerable segments of the population and business in the EU.
Orban has repeatedly criticized and asked to lift EU anti-Russian sanctions
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, described as a friend of Russian dictator Putin, has repeatedly criticized EU sanctions against Russia. He argues that the sanctions against Russia hinder the economic development of the European Union. He calls on the leaders of the European Union to lift all sanctions. He believes that “EU sanctions have increased gas prices and inflation, and if these measures are removed, gas prices will immediately fall by 50%, and inflation will also fall.”
Recently, he again criticized EU sanctions against Russia, calling them “unsuccessful”. Moreover, the Hungarian leader calls for a ceasefire in Ukraine and peace talks. In his opinion, peace negotiations will bring economic relief.
