Hungarian government spokesperson zoltan kovacs has said budapest remains opposed to the introduction of an eu embargo on oil and gas imported from russia.
Kovacs says the hungarian stance regarding any oil and gas embargo has not changed as it we do not support them.
A total embargo on the two russian fossil fuels is currently being considered by the eu commission for inclusion in its sixth round of sanctions against moscow.
EU energy ministers are hoping to reach a united stance on russian gas and oil via a series of emergency talks this week.
however, germany’s economy minister robert habeck admits there’s no unanimous view among the bloc’s 27 countries on winding down supplies of russian energy.
Moscow continues to state that foreign gas buyers must pay into its own private bank, gazprombank, which would convert any dollars or euros into roubles.
