Orban: Hungary to expand defense capabilities

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban insisted on Friday that the country must significantly increase the pace of its defense deployment program.

In an interview with state radio, Orban reiterated the government's plans to "radically increase" Hungary's defense capabilities. Orban also commented on the war in Ukraine, expressing hopes it would end as soon as possible.

Hungary has been criticized by the European Union for not accepting to introduce a ban on Russian energy products, which the country widely relies on. Orban, on the other hand, argued earlier that Brussels should exempt Hungary from the ban.
