Discussions about the future of sanctions against Russia are unavoidable. This was stated by the Foreign Minister of Hungary Peter Siyarto during a conversation with President of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov, reported Index.
According to Siyarto’s words, now it is absolutely not clear how these sanctions might bring the solution to the conflict in Ukraine.
"We are pessimistic when it comes to the full implementation of the Minsk agreements," - said Siyarto.
According to him, postponing pragmatic cooperation with Russia and the normalization of relations is contrary to the interests of Europe and could mean new losses for the Hungarian economy,
The Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban has repeatedly emphasized that the automatic extension of sanctions against Russia will not be implemented in June.
