Orbán: Energy security, lowering ‘sanctions surcharge’ priority

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his cabinet discussed Hungary's energy security and the establishment of the independent energy ministry at their meeting on Wednesday, the PM's press chief said.

Orbán said in a post on Facebook that the sanctions imposed by Brussels had caused energy prices in Hungary to skyrocket. Therefore, an independent energy ministry is being established effective December 1, he noted.

The most important considerations now are securing Hungary’s energy supply and bringing down the “sanctions surcharge” on energy, the prime minister added.
