Nuclear energy of the Russian Federation will not be included in the ninth package of EU sanctions, — Hungarian Foreign Ministry

According to Peter Szijjarto, Budapest managed to ensure that nuclear energy will not be part of the sanctions package. Thus, if the ninth package of anti-Russian sanctions is implemented, the Hungarian energy sector will not suffer.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjarto, after a meeting of European Foreign Ministers in Brussels, said that the ninth package of EU sanctions does not include restrictions on the Russian energy sector and nuclear energy. According to him, this will avoid threats to the security of Hungary's energy supply. This is reported by the Hungarian news resource Origo.

“In accordance with the current state of affairs, the sanctions measures affecting the Russian energy sector were also not included in the ninth package of sanctions. And we also managed to achieve, according to the current state of affairs, that nuclear energy will not be part of the sanctions package,” Szijjarto said.

The head of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry noted that during the discussion in Brussels, the parties still do not go towards peace, and military rhetoric prevails in the negotiations. According to the diplomat, it is a very big problem that discussions turn to sanctions, even if they fail by their nature, because they do not lead to peace.

“If peace does not come quickly, the situation can easily get out of control. In Brussels, discussions still do not go towards peace, the word “peace” is relegated to the background,” the Hungarian minister said.

Observers of the German publication RND noted that the European nuclear power industry is largely dependent on the supply of fuel elements for nuclear power plants based on uranium from Russia. Thus, in the context of the energy crisis in Europe, dependence on nuclear energy may become another lever of pressure in the hands of President Vladimir Putin.
