Orban: Europe has lost 4 governments due to sanctions against Russia and they need to be removed

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that if sanctions against Russia are lifted, prices and inflation in Europe will immediately fall, and its economy will have a chance to recover and avoid recession.

At a meeting between the ruling coalition of the Fidesz parties and the Christian Democratic People’s Party, Orban stressed that “if the sanctions are lifted, prices will immediately fall by half, and inflation will fall. Without sanctions, the European economy will recover and be able to avoid an imminent recession,” reiterating that sanctions are the cause of economic problems, the energy crisis and inflation.

He pointed out that “when these sanctions were introduced in Brussels at the beginning of the summer, the European bureaucrats did not promise this, but promised that the sanctions would hit Russia, not the Europeans. Since then, it has become clear that the imposed sanctions do more harm to Europe than to Russia,” calling on members of the ruling coalition “to do everything possible so that Europe lifts these sanctions no later than the end of the year.”

The Hungarian prime minister constantly criticized the European Union for its anti-Russian policy, noting that “thousands of sanctions have been imposed against Russia, but they have not shocked Moscow, and Europe has lost four governments and is suffering from a deep economic and political crisis.” In addition, the EU countries missed the opportunity to mediate in the conflict.” In Ukraine, because it could not guarantee the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
