Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban blamed the European Commission for the energy crisis in Europe, Reuters reports.
"The EU should change its policy, at least partially. The reason why prices are rising is the mistake of the European Commission. We need to change some rules, otherwise, everyone will suffer," Orban said.
The Hungarian Prime Minister noted that his country was not affected by the energy crisis, but Hungary faced problems caused by the EU's "green" policy.
"For Hungary, the problem lies in the new rules related to the EU Green Pact, taxation of owners of houses, apartments, and cars. This is unacceptable," Orban said.
On Wednesday, October 6, the price of gas in Europe exceeded $1,600 per thousand cubic meters, and the demand for energy resources in the European Union has peaked over the past 25 years.
