Lack of consensus at EU wards off oil embargo on Russia


Lack of consensus at EU wards off oil embargo on Russia

Brussels, May 16 (Prensa Latina) Hungary's reluctance to approve the sanctions proposed by the European Union (EU) on Russian oil is warding off that possibility for now and is currently forcing this regional bloc to seek the much-needed consensus to achieve that goal.

After his arrival at a meeting of EU’s Council of Foreign Ministers, High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, acknowledged that Hungary cannot do without the suply of hydrocarbons from Moscow for now.

Russia supplies over 60 percent of the fuel that is consumed in Hungary, so the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban continues to veto the new package of sanctions proposed by the European Union against Russia.

We have to convince 27. Some of them have more problems than others. Some member States have more issues than others, the diplomat said in this Belgian city, where the headquarters of this bloc are located.

Since the launch of the Russian military operation in Ukraine in late February, the EU and the West have imposed five packages of sanctions on Russia with the confessed goal of isolating that nation economically.

The Kremlin has repeatedly claimed that it deployed troops to respond to a request by the governments of the self-proclaimed people’s republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and does not intend to attack civilians but to dismantle that country’s war infrastructure.

The Donbas territories were besieged by Kiev for eight years, under the eyes of the EU and other international actors that did not intervene.
