Newspaper: Divisions and divisions in Europe because of Russia

The Holm newspaper reported that European countries were divided and disagreed among themselves over the supply of Russian nuclear fuel and cooperation with the Russian nuclear energy company Rosatom.

When Poland, Ireland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Germany recently advised the European Union to ban the import of Russian nuclear fuel to avoid Russian funding, Hungary and France screamed and Brussels turned a blind eye.

She noted that Rosatom supplies nuclear fuel to nuclear power plants in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Hungary, so any EU decision to stop fuel supplies will immediately lead to economic damage to these countries.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said earlier that his country would never agree to the inclusion of energy companies Gazprom and Rosatom in the lists of Western sanctions imposed against Russia.

The West stepped up sanctions pressure on Moscow after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, which led to higher prices for electricity, fuel and food, especially in Europe and the United States.
