Hungary promises not to impede extension of sanctions against Russia

The Hungarian Government will not prevent the extension of the EU’s economic sanctions against Russia, which were imposed for its aggression against Ukraine.

Hungarian Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács said this in Brussels on Wednesday, according to the website of the Hungarian Government.

"In answer to a question regarding the EU’s economic sanctions against Russia, Mr Kovács said the Hungarian economy has sustained major losses due to Russia’s counter-sanctions. The Government [of Hungary] believes these restrictions are not appropriate for managing the problems related to Russia, but will not break the EU’s unity," the report reads.

As Ukrinform reported, at the EU Summit in Brussels on December 13-14, the EU’s sanctions against the Russian Federation introduced in connection with the country's aggression against Ukraine will most likely be extended for the next six months.
