Hungary Remains Committed to Russian Energy Supply


Hungary do not intend to move away from Russia as an energy supplier according to its Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Economic Relations of Hungary, Peter Szijjarto.

  • "I would like to underscore that we do not want to get rid of any sources that currently ensure Hungary’s energy security. At the same time, we would like to attract additional sources, preferably carbon-neutral energy sources," Szijjarto said.
  • "Hungary views energy purchases as a matter of physical reality rather than political preference and will not allow anyone to pressure it into abandoning any energy source." He said about European pressures to move away from Russian energy supplies.
  • Russia remains Hungary’s top energy supplier despite EU sanctions.
