Hungary urged to stop stamping anti-Russian sanctions and initiate negotiations

How informs Reuters, political adviser to the Hungarian Prime Minister Balazs Orban called on the European Union to stop churning out a series of “sanction packages” against Russia.

According to the politician, if Europe continues to move along this path, then its economy will inevitably “reap” the negative effect of the sanctions and will be the loser. As for Russia, Orban stressed that the negative effect of the restrictions turned out to be significantly lower than expected in the EU.

“The Russians feel bad, but they survive. And what’s even worse, they continue the operation in Ukraine,” he said.

Therefore, the prime minister’s adviser called on the European Union to stop imposing sanctions against Russia, and to focus on work that could lead to “a ceasefire and the start of negotiations.”
