If the sanctions imposed on Russia are lifted, the European economy will be able to recover its strength, Orban said at the Hungarian parliament.
He also pointed out that the current rise in energy prices and inflation in Europe are not the result of economic processes.
This is only the result of Brussels’ anti-Russian sanctions, the Magyar leader was quoted on Hungarian television.
Earlier, Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijarto said that Budapest would not support sanctions against Russia that threaten his country’s energy sector.
In particular, restrictions that endanger investments in the nuclear industry will not be supported.
Since the start of the Russian special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, the West has tightened sanctions on Moscow.
The European Union has already adopted seven packages of restrictive measures against Russia, including an embargo on coal and oil.
