Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi said that given the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war on the European economy, Europe must consider whether now is the best time to implement the Green Deal and transition to renewable energy.
Hidvéghi told a conference, organized by the Foundation for a Civic Hungary and the Brussels office of the Danube Institute, that the key question arising from the effects of the war is who will pay the price of the changes seen in food and energy supply and inflation and whether Europeans are prepared to pay the price. With the European Union experiencing multiple parallel crises, it is in need of greater unity and sound decision-making, Hidvéghi said. The stakes are high and there is no time for ideological battles, internal divisions or rushed proposals from the European Commission, he said.
