In the sixth package of sanctions against Russia, which the EU is currently discussing, there is a proposal for an embargo on imports of crude oil from its territory. If the package is approved, Brussels may impose a ban in six months, and restrict the import of Russian oil products from 2023.

Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia did not support the idea of ​​an oil embargo because of their dependence on Russian energy supplies.

After that, Bratislava and Prague stopped opposing the ban, but Hungary did not change its position.
