Poland’s deputy prime minister, Jarosław Kaczyński, was harshly critical of Hungary at a voter event in Sochaczew, Poland, writes Wprost.
As previously reported, the EU had wanted to impose sanctions on Patriarch Kirill, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church was removed from the sanctions list after Hungary protested.
In response to a question about Hungary’s obstinance over EU sanctions, Kaczyński said:
Well, for this Kirill we had to pay a very small price for the unanimity needed in such cases. But in truth there is a very serious problem with Hungary at the moment, which I do not want to take lightly.
