Verkhovna Rada Accused Zelensky's Team of Gas Conflict with Hungary
OREANDA-NEWS. The conflict between Ukraine and Hungary against the background of a contract with the Russian Federation is a sign of the complete unprofessionalism of the team of President Volodymyr Zelensky, if any claims need to be made, then to the President of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan, says Oleg Voloshin, deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Opposition Platform - For Life party.
Earlier, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Kiev was disappointed with the long-term agreement between the Hungarian company MVM CEEnergy Ltd and the Russian company Gazprom to supply gas bypassing Ukraine and believed that it was damaging bilateral Ukrainian-Hungarian relations. Kiev will turn to the European Commission because of the contract between Hungary and the Russian Federation for the supply of gas bypassing Ukraine. The Ukrainian ambassador was summoned to the Hungarian Foreign Ministry because of Kiev's position on the Budapest agreement with Gazprom, a similar step was taken by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, summoning the Hungarian ambassador.
"The acute conflict with Hungary is a sign of the complete unprofessionalism of Zelensky's team. Gas to Hungary can bypass Ukraine only after the construction of the Turkish Stream. Claims should have been made to the" great friend "Erdogan. And earlier. Command Hungary, with whom to conclude commercial agreements, we have no right. They are afraid to criticize Ankara - it was necessary to put some wine in your mouth and keep silent. And so the past government liked to assert that “the whole world is with us." This has every reason to say: "The whole world is against us," Voloshin wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
Hungary and Gazprom signed a new contract on Monday. We are talking about deliveries to Hungary of 4.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year over the next 15 years. Including 3.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year will be supplied through Serbia and 1 billion - through Austria.
