The actions of the official Kiev against the background of the agreement between Hungary and Gazprom caused outrage among the readers of Der Spiegel in Germany.
Users expressed disagreement with Ukraine’s accusations of treason directed to the Hungarian side. The discontent of Kiev is connected with the desire of Budapest to buy gas at a favorable price. In response, German users were outraged by such a reaction to the agreement between Hungary and Gazprom. They explained the absurdity of Ukraine’s gas claims.
“The reaction of the Ukrainians is utterly shameful. They are not members of the EU and NATO and therefore do not have any obligations with Hungary. It is the height of impudence to instruct a sovereign state with whom to conclude agreements”, the inhabitants of Germany emphasized.
Readers drew their own conclusions from the attacks of the official Kiev. Ukraine puts money from gas transit into its pocket, but for some reason the talk is about the energy security of Europe, commentators noted.
They also asked what the right of a foreign state to charge for transactions between two other independent countries is based on.
