GOVT SPOX: HUNGARY GOVT CONTINUES TO REJECT GAS AND OIL EMBARGO ON RUSSIA

 

Hungary’s stance on embargoes on Russia oil and gas has not changed, Zoltán Kovács, the state secretary for international communications, said in a Facebook post. “We do not support them” Kovács said, reacting to the German ZDF television channel’s reports on Hungary, Slovakia and Austria withdrawing their veto blocking sanctions on Russian crude oil imports into the European Union. Citing a high-ranking EU official, ZDF said that Germany’s announcement in support of the veto had tipped the balance, with all EU countries now in favour of stopping the imports of Russian crude oil, as a punitive measure in response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
