Hungarian FM: extension of anti-Russian sanctions ‘wrong and anti-democratic’

09:36, 23 June 2016

The Hungarian Minister said the issue of anti-Russian sanctions should be raised at the level of the EU's top political management (Radio Liberty).

Szijarto, the co-chairman of the commission from the Hungarian side, said his country is not satisfied with such important decisions being made ‘in private’. The minister added it needs to be cleared whether the sanctions really have impact on implementation of Minsk agreements. He also called Russia Hungary’s key partner in trade and energy area.
