Finnish political scientist Aaltola accused Hungary and its partners of weakening the EU against Russia
The head of the Finnish Foreign Policy Institute, political scientist Mika Aaltola, said that the position of some representatives of the European Union (EU), including Budapest, could harm the EU in its confrontation with Moscow. He wrote about it on his Twitter account.
A Finnish expert named the EU’s weakest point in the fight against Russia and accused Hungary and its partners of weakening the EU against Russia. He recalled the speeches of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, drawing attention to the ineffectiveness and failure of sanctions against Moscow.
“In the opinion of some EU countries, the idea of imposing sanctions was a bad idea, because now Russia is doing it right. The competition between EU countries can become the weakest link in the relations with Russia”, emphasized A. Aaltola.
The political scientist added that Europe’s restrictions are “incredibly easily circumvented” and Brussels needs to be quick to come up with ways to overcome them. According to him, the growth of exports to Russia shows the weakness of sanctions. Aaltola called for pressure on third countries to increase the effectiveness of measures against Moscow.
