As informed, Hungary’s representatives put forward additional requirements to the EU ambassadors, which ‘delay the approval of the sixth package of sanctions against Russia’. In particular, ‘Budapest demanded that Patriarch Kirill be excluded from the proposed list of persons subject to sanctions’, the source said.

In addition, Hungary also raised ‘minor technical issues’ related to the embargo on Russian oil supplies.
