Hungary's Orban Blames EU's Russia Sanctions For Energy Crisis, Wants Them Scrapped

September 22, 2022
By RFE/RL (Radio Free Europe)


Hungary's right-wing populist Prime Minister Viktor Orban has told a meeting of his ruling Fidesz party that sanctions against Russia imposed by the European Union should be lifted, the pro-government daily Magyar Nemzet reports. Orban made the remarks at a closed-door meeting of his party on September 21.

Orban, the only EU leader who maintains warm relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, is a harsh critic of EU sanctions on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.

…On September 18, the European Commission, the bloc's executive body, called for the elimination of 7.5 billion euros ($7.5 billion) in EU funding earmarked for Hungary over corruption, rights, and rule-of-law disputes.

Last week, the European Parliament approved a resolution saying Hungary was no longer a "full democracy," prompting Fidesz to accuse it of "attacking Hungary again."

Remember this guy just spoke to CPAC in May. Birds of a feather flock together.

The American Conservative Union held a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Budapest, Hungary, May 19-22, 2022, marking the first time the gathering has been held in Europe. Speakers from both the U.S. and Hungary delivered speeches that referred to America’s “wokeness” and framed a “fight” to save America and the West from “socialism,” liberal democracy and the progressive left.

Hungarian leader and right-wing demagogue Viktor Orban received a hero’s welcome at the conference, which also featured a Hungarian talk show host known for making antisemitic and racist remarks, as well as opening remarks from a Hungarian rabbi. Following the conference, in an apparent effort to distance itself from the bigotry expressed by various speakers, CPAC released a statement condemning antisemitism and racial intolerance.
