Hungarian FM criticizes European policy against Russia

Budapest, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) The Hungarian Foreign Minister, Peter Szijjárto, affirmed today that Europe should stop its policy of sanctions and its attempts to weaken Russia.

According to the Foreign Minister it is necessary to support all steps that bring the crisis to an end.

We should forget, he said, about measures that only lead to further escalation and added that from the sanctions policy it becomes more and more obvious that it does not work, as attempts to weaken the Russians may bring Europe to its knees, he noted.

On the other hand, the spokeswoman of the Magyar government, Alexandra Sentkiraia, recently expressed that sanctions turned out to be a weapon that fired in the opposite direction, which impoverished Europe and enriched Russia.

Moreover, according to opinion polls, more than 70 percent of Hungarians believe that sanctions against Russia hurt Europe, including Hungary.

After the start of the Russian special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, the West intensified sanctions pressure on Moscow: Russian assets worth hundreds of billions of dollars were frozen.

The European Union has already adopted seven packages of restrictive measures against the Eurasian giant, including an embargo on coal and oil.

But all this affected, first of all, the European countries, which were already facing peak inflation, and now, an energy crisis.
