In a radio interview, Orban noted that anyone who intervenes economically in a military conflict takes a position, and expressed concern about what he described as an accumulation of measures against Russia.
The head of Government reiterated his opposition regarding the European Commission’s proposal to grant Ukraine aid estimated at 18 billion euros by 2023 in loans, the interest of which would be borne by the Member States.
The prime minister later expressed his willingness to ‘fight’ a possible new package of measures against Moscow.
We supply destructive weapons, train Ukrainian soldiers on our territory, and impose sanctions on energy. We become an integral part of the conflict. Europe is playing a dangerous game, Orban said.
