The Hungarian government expressed readiness to support the decision on prolonging sanctions of the European Union against Russia - in spite of the fact that Hungary incurs losses from the counter-sanctions. This is mentioned in the message on the official website of the Cabinet of Ministers of Hungary.
‘The Hungarian economy has sustained major losses due to Russia’s counter-sanctions. The government believes these restrictions are not appropriate for managing the problems related to Russia, but will not break the EU’s unity,’ reads the message.
As it is known, the representatives of the Hungarian Government have been talking about the need for reconsideration of sanctions against Russia.
The session of the European Council, where the leaders of the EU are to take part will be held on December 13-14.
A political decision on the prolongation of the economic sanctions against the Russian Federation for another six months is to be adopted.
