Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orbán is ready to support tough sanctions on Moscow over aggression against Ukraine, including Russia's disconnection from SWIFT system.

"I spoke again today with Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orbán. He once again assured me of his support for tough sanctions on Russia. In particular, it is an issue of Russia's disconnection from SWIFT system," Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki posted on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

On Saturday in Berlin, Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki and President of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda will persuade German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to impose tough sanctions on Putin's regime, including Russia's disconnection from SWIFT system.

The day before, Morawiecki wrote in a letter to the EU leadership that Russia must be disconnected from SWIFT international network, close EU’s airspace to Russia, freeze assets and confiscate property of Russian elites in the West, cut off Russian companies from financial markets, and stop purchasing fuel from Russia.

As reported, on February 24, the head of the aggressor country, Vladimir Putin, announced the launch of a special operation in Ukraine. After that, Russian missiles struck a number of Ukrainian cities, and military facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were attacked.

On the morning of February 24, the Verkhovna Rada approved a decree of President Volodymyr Zelensky on the imposition of martial law throughout Ukraine.
