Russian gas must be turned off, Green politician Olivio Kocsis-Cake, the deputy parliamentary group leader of the Hungarian Dialogue (Parbeszed) party, told ATV’s Start programme.

The politician said that sanctions should also be imposed on energy carriers, even if this increases energy prices further. “If in order to achieve this [i.e. peace – ed.], sanctions must be imposed on energy carriers, which Russia then applies, then this step must be taken,” he said.

Later in the show, Olivio Kocsis-Cake went even further by saying, in connection with Russian gas, that

“this resource must be shut off, it must be closed, because it provides them with a source of money to wage wars and attack an independent country.”

The vast majority of Hungary’s gas supply comes from Russian gas, and this energy source is largely used for heating, so if the measures proposed by the opposition politician were to be implemented, Hungary’s population would face serious difficulties.
