UWC condemns Hungary’s stance on the EU sanctions against Russia

The Ukrainian World Congress stated that it was “appalled” by Hungary’s Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó opposition to the 10th EU sanction package against RU.

On Monday, at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels, Szijjártó stated that “sanctions have taken the EU to a dead end. Sanctions harm us Europeans more than the Russians. Everyone can see that. This is not a political statement, it’s a fact,” according to AA.

“How appalling. Budapest preventing EU support for Ukraine and promoting Russian interests,” the UWC statement reads. “After almost a year of Russia’s deadly invasion of Ukraine, heinous war crimes and genocide of Ukrainians, Hungary still can’t manage to distinguish good vs. evil. What a shocking example of political nearsightedness from a country that has seen Russian tanks in the streets of its own capital!”
