Hungarian Foreign Ministry summoned Ukrainian ambassador over reaction to Gazprom deal

Let us remind you that yesterday, September 27, Hungary and Gazprom signed a new contract on the supply of 4.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year to Hungary for 15 years. 3.5 billion cubic meters of gas will come through Serbia and 1 billion through Austria.

After that, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Kiev was disappointed with Hungary’s decision to sign a new long-term contract with Gazprom to supply gas bypassing Ukraine and believed that it was detrimental to bilateral Ukrainian-Hungarian relations. Kiev announced that it intends to apply to the European Commission because of Hungary’s contract with Russia for the supply of gas bypassing Ukraine.
