zelenskyy: Hungary rejects Zelenskyy’s enchantment for weapons

Hungary’s prime minister on Friday rejected an emotional enchantment from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to provide Ukraine with weapons and assist sanctions on Russia’s power sector. Prime Minister Viktor Orban mentioned in a video posted to social media that Zelenskyy’s requests had been “towards Hungary‘s pursuits,” and that sanctions on Russian power “would imply that the Hungarian economic system would decelerate after which cease inside moments.”

The rejection got here after Zelenskyy on Thursday addressed a gathering of European Union leaders in Brussels the place he particularly addressed Orban, who’s broadly thought of Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s closest ally within the EU.

“Hear, Viktor, are you aware what is going on in Mariupol?” Zelenskyy mentioned. “I wish to be open as soon as and for all – you need to resolve for your self, who you might be for.”

Hungary, alone amongst EU nations bordering Ukraine, has declined to provide its neighbour with weapons and refused to permit weapons shipments to cross its border into Ukraine.

On Friday, Orban mentioned that 85% of Hungary’s fuel and greater than 60% of its oil comes from Russia, and that blocking Russian power exports would pressure Hungarians to “pay the value of the battle.”
