Gergely Gulyás says EU to reverse previous decisions, not to penalize Russian natural gas and oil


The head of the ministry remarked that everyone who receives raw materials from Russia pays in the same way as the Hungarian side.

The price of the war must not be paid by the Hungarian people, and this is possible if “we are still able to obtain energy at the lowest possible cost,” the prime minister said in a statement to Kossuth Radio on Sunday.

Gergely Gulyás said that the most important thing was for the European Union to reverse its previous decisions, not to accept a sanction that would make it impossible to import Russian oil and natural gas. Otherwise, Hungary would have to procure these raw materials significantly more expensive, without which overhead reductions, heating and the functioning of the economy would not be possible. According to him, the government’s efforts are to continue to ensure the sustainability of the conditions for overhead reductions, which are conditional on the availability of oil and natural gas and the return of energy prices to normal levels as soon as possible.

We must not impose sanctions that primarily punish ourselves and not those we want to sanction, Gergely Gulyás said. He also said:

In addition to Hungary, nine more countries are doing this, “just because being good in Europe today also means that the leaders of the countries do not speak honestly in international life and with their own people, so the other nine countries do not say they do the same,” he said. me.

There should be no doubt that those who receive raw materials from Russia today, using exactly the same procedure, will pay for natural gas in the same way, Gergely Gulyás added.

Finally, he stressed that since energy prices have become extremely expensive and the necessary resources need to be supplemented from the budget, the government needs to re-examine the possibility of a sustainable food and petrol stop. Furthermore, Mol also bears a significant burden in order to maintain the retail fuel price of HUF 480.
