Orban: Europe has lost 4 governments due to sanctions on Russia and they must be lifted

Hungary's Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, said that if sanctions against Russia were lifted, prices and inflation would fall immediately in Europe, and its economy would have a chance to recover and avoid a recession.

Orban stressed, during a meeting of the ruling coalition of Fidesz parties and the Christian Democratic People's Party, that "if the sanctions are lifted, prices will immediately fall by half, and inflation will also fall. Without sanctions, the European economy will recover and can avoid the imminent recession", reaffirming Sanctions are the cause of economic problems, the energy crisis and inflation.


"When these sanctions were imposed in Brussels at the beginning of the summer, the European bureaucrats did not promise, and promised that the sanctions would hit Russia and not the Europeans. Since then, it has become clear that the imposed sanctions do more harm to Europe than Russia," he noted, calling on members of the ruling coalition to "Do everything in their power for Europe to lift these sanctions no later than the end of the year."


The Hungarian Prime Minister has constantly criticized the European Union for its anti-Russian policy, noting that "there are thousands of sanctions against Russia, but they have not shaken Moscow, while Europe has lost four governments and suffers from a deep economic and political crisis. In addition, the European Union countries missed the opportunity to mediate in the conflict." In Ukraine, because it could not guarantee the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
