While most European Union (EU) countries are dancing to the whistles of Brussels sanctions and reducing gas imports from Russia, Hungary has opted for the sensible path: Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto made a special trip to Moscow to buy more Russian gas for his country to use this winter.
“We are in Moscow,” Szijjarto posted on his Facebook page. He wants to ensure the gas supply for the Hungarian population and strive for a “peaceful solution” to the war in Ukraine.
The Foreign Minister also planned a meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Left-wing European countries should take notice – Hungary is teaching them how foreign policy works. Hungary’s top diplomat stressed that “all wars end up in negotiations” and that the world should focus on how to achieve peace by quickly bringing about a cessation of the nearly five-month-old conflict.
Hungary is one of the few European countries that refuse to bow to political pressure from the EU. Furthermore, they will never waiver on their government’s main task: preserving Hungary’s security and the well-being of its citizens first.
