The US is talking about sanctions against Hungary

The Senate condemned Budapest’s attempts to block aid to Ukraine and Sweden’s entry into NATO.

The head of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Ben Cardin, suggested that the White House impose sanctions against Hungary and its Prime Minister Viktor Orban for undermining the unity of the EU and NATO. Bloomberg reported this on Friday, February 2.

In particular, Cardin condemned Orban’s attempts to postpone the discussion of EU financial aid for Ukraine in the amount of 50 billion euros and protests against Sweden’s entry into NATO.

“Orban has once again shown himself to be the least reliable member of NATO, in addition to excessively delaying the European Union’s efforts to provide the necessary economic assistance to Ukraine until now,” Cardin said.

He said the White House should extend the Magnitsky Act to Orban and consider excluding Hungary from the US visa waiver program.

Two more senators – Democrat Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Thom Tillis – said Orban risks “irreversibly damaging” Hungary’s relationship with the United States and NATO if he does not decide on Sweden’s entry into the military alliance.

Let’s remember that on February 1, EU leaders unanimously reached an agreement on the allocation of macro-financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 50 billion euros over four years. Before this, Orban blocked this decision for a long time.
