The European Union (EU) should send a message to Hungary urging Budapest to agree to an embargo on Russian oil imports, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kouleba said during a visit to Brussels on Monday.

“It is not up to me to engage in a rhetorical conflict with the Hungarian authorities, this is something that the European Union must resolve, it is its own, family affair,” Kouleba said.

“It’s clear what is happening, who is hindering progress (in imposing the embargo), but time is running out and every day Russia continues to make money throwing itself into the war,” he insisted.

Mr Kuleba argued that if the EU continued to import oil and gas from Russia, it would “pay double” for the war, saying it would “finance the Russian war machine, its aggression and its atrocities”.
