Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and the cabinet discussed Hungary’s energy security and the establishment of the independent energy ministry at a meeting on Wednesday. PM 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.
