According to a senior official from Budapest, Hungary has expressed its intentions to veto the 6th European Union (EU) sanction package targeting Russian energy imports into the bloc.

The sanction package proposes to gradually end all imports of Russian oil and other petroleum products by EU member states by the end of 2022. This comes on top of a ban on Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, along with two other financial institutions, from the SWIFT international payment system also included in the package.

“The Hungarian position has not changed regarding the oil and gas embargo: we do not support it,” Hungarian government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs wrote in a Facebook post. His post came as a response to an earlier report that Hungary has been convinced not to veto the sanction.

Chief of Staff for Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Gergely Gulyas, has publicly denounced the oil embargo. Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto has said that his government would not agree to any EU sanctions that target oil as it will put Hungary’s energy security at risk.
