Hungarian Premier calls EU sanctions on Russia “miscalculated”

(MENAFN) EU restrictions on Russia were “miscalculated” and might abolish Europe’s economy, unless Brussels alters its position, Hungarian Premier Viktor Orban stated on a radio meeting on Friday.

Orban, an honest criticizer of the EU’s procedure on Russia, said “The moment of truth must come in Brussels, when leaders admit they have made a miscalculation, that the sanctions policy was based on wrong assumptions and it must be changed.”

He stated that while Ukraine requires support, the bloc's highest need to adjust their plan in contradiction with Russia.

He also stated that the restrictions were unsuccessful to threaten Russia’s economy and haven’t forced Moscow to stop the military action.

He added, they have instead led to extensive destruction to the EU's own financial steadiness.

The Hungarian president declared that “The sanctions do not help Ukraine, however, they are bad for the European economy and if it goes on like this, they will kill off the European economy... What we see right now is unbearable.”
