The Hungarian Foreign Ministry criticized the statement of the European Commissioner about Russia.

The Hungarian Foreign Ministry criticized the statement of the European Commissioner about Russia.

The State Secretary of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry for Bilateral Relations, Tamas Menzer, called “dangerous” and “pro-war” the statement of the European Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson, that the crisis would end with the defeat of Russia.


He noted that Hungary considers necessary “not a longer war, but an immediate peace”, which requires “immediate ceasefire and dialogue.”

“I think this is a very dangerous statement because it links the end of the crisis to a military event that we don’t know when it will happen, if it happens at all. I could also say that this is the pro-war position of Brussels, which prolongs the war and suffering. This is extremely dangerous and unacceptable,” Mentzer said.


Earlier it became known that the European Commission will make an exception for Hungary in the event of the introduction of a price ceiling for Russian gas.
