Hungary's ruling party proposes to poll the country's citizens on whether they support EU sanctions against Russia, AP reported.

“The sanctions are causing harm. They are destroying Europe’s economy,” Kocsis said. “We have to convince European decision-makers, the members of the elite, that they shouldn’t maintain the energy sanctions because big problems will come out if it.”

At a news conference, Kocsis acknowledged that the consultation is a political tool that the government can use in its debate with the EU over whether to extend or impose additional sanctions against Russia. He said the government would decide on the timing of the poll.

The Hungarian government has openly opposed EU sanctions against Moscow, arguing that they hurt the European economy more than they hurt Russia. Budapest has also refused to supply Ukraine with weapons or allow their transfer across its border.
