“I've already asked my colleagues to check the consequences of the contract,” McPhee said when asked by reporters.
As it was reported earlier, on September 27, it became known that Hungary had signed a new long-term contract with the Russian concern Gazprom for the supply of gas bypassing Ukraine. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine stated that they were disappointed with this decision.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba, in turn, called the gas contract between Budapest and Moscow a blow to Ukrainian-Hungarian relations.
He also said that Ukraine would turn to the European Commission to understand how Hungary's agreement with Gazprom affects the EU's energy security as a whole.
Today, September 28, it became known that Ukraine and Hungary are calling for ambassadors due to the signing of a gas contract between Russia and Hungary.
