HUNGARY-EU-RUSSIA-UKRAINE-CONFLICT-OIL-EMBARGO-GREENPEACE

Oil barrels are seen during a protest action of independent global campaigning network Greenpeace in front of the parliament building in Budapest, Hungary on May 30, 2022, to demand from the Hungarian government not to oppose EU sanctions on Russian oil. - With EU leaders set to meet on May 30 to try to seal a sixth Russia sanctions package that includes an oil embargo, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has mounted his latest show of defiance. The package proposed earlier this month by the European Commission, the bloc's executive arm, requires unanimous backing from all 27 EU member states. But the combative Orban, elected for a fourth straight term last month, has described an embargo as "a red line" and an "atomic bomb" that would destroy the central European country's economy. Budapest -- which under Orban sought close ties to Moscow until the invasion of Ukraine -- insists a ban would spark recession, shortages and rocketing prices, and undermine Hungary's energy security.
