András Fekete-Győr told Klubrádió that if they had been in government, they would have joined the oil embargo, following the example of Bulgaria. He also said that the opposition should have said the same thing the Orbán government said about the Ukrainian war.
Fekete-Győr told the radio that if they were in government, Hungary would have joined the embargo anyway and the party would have asked the European Union for a grace period, during which it could carry out the developments and investments necessary for the transition and the elimination of dependence on Russian energy – following the Bulgarian model.
Although he did not say where he would have sourced the money from in order to complete this, according to Fekete-Győr, the EU is the institution responsible for the security of supply, and with the help of the Energy Union, this would not be unfeasible.
He also said that “The opposition should have said the same thing during the pre-election campaign that the Orbán government said about the Russian-Ukrainian war: that we should strive for peace and security.”
The Momentum politician said earlier that “like our allies, we must offer arms and humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian government to help protect the Hungarian minorities in Transcarpathia.”
