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.
