The Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, called for an end to the import of Ukrainian agricultural products to the countries of the European Union, reports Magyar Nemzet.

According to the head of the Hungarian government, Brussels sets rules for European farmers that make production cheaper. But it is allowed to import agricultural products to Europe from countries where these rules do not apply.

"This means that Ukrainian agricultural products should not be admitted to the European market," Orban added.

He stated that no one listens to the opinion of farmers, and the distance between them and those who make decisions in Brussels is "like heaven and earth".

It is worth noting that Hungary still has not canceled the unilateral ban on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products, which has been in effect since last year.

Orban's scandalous position

As a reminder, Hungary continues to maintain active trade and diplomatic relations with Russia, despite the full-scale war in Ukraine. At the same time, Budapest refuses military aid to our country.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban has repeatedly blocked the introduction of sanctions against Russia, as well as aid to Ukraine from the European Union.

It recently became known that Hungary has blocked the 13th package of EU sanctions against Russia.
