Hungarian PM Orban told the Vilaggazdasag daily Friday "it would be fortunate to avoid these [EU economic sanctions against Russia] because it is not in the interests of either Europe, or much less Hungary." Hungary gets 80% of its gas from Russia and has a €10bn Russian-built nuclear plant contract.
