BUDAPEST, 2nd — PRIME. The Hungarian Cabinet of Ministers at the first autumn meeting came to the conclusion that an energy crisis is expected in Europe in the fall, but there will be no energy shortage in the country, since there is and will be enough gas, electricity and fuel, said Bertalan Havasi, spokesman for Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
According to Khavashi, at the first meeting of the government under the leadership of Orban in the autumn session, the ministers stated that due to the situation in Ukraine “and the erroneous sanctions of Brussels, an energy crisis is expected in the whole of Europe in the fall.”
“However, thanks to the measures taken by the government, there will be no shortage of energy in Hungary; there is and will be gas, electricity, fuel,” the prime minister’s spokesman emphasized after the meeting, his words are quoted by the MTI agency.
According to the spokesman, the government is doing everything possible to protect Hungarians from inflation and reduce utility bills.
Earlier, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Economic Relations of Hungary Péter Szijjártó said that the energy policy of Western Europe is heading for collapse “at the speed of an asteroid” because with the approach of winter, in the absence of heating, “the veil will fall from the eyes of Europeans.”
After the start of a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine, the West stepped up sanctions pressure on Russia, which led to an increase in prices for electricity, fuel and food in Europe and the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that the policy of containing and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people.
