Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said a vaccine shipment from the East “needed to protect lives” is shortly arriving in Hungary, while gas “needed for industry” is coming from the West. Szijjártó said a government cargo plane is transporting a second shipment of 180,000 doses of vaccine from Russia this evening, while 90 million cubic meters of liquefied gas from the United States is arriving at the Krk terminal on the Croatian coast and will be delivered to Hungary. He said that once the latest Russian delivery is received, vaccines from the East will have reached 1,776,000 doses. The minister added that in terms of energy supply, “we can say after seventy years that Western gas supplies to Hungary are flowing”.
