Question :

Which country is opposing EU's proposal to ban over 2/3rd of Russian oil imports?

A) Poland
B) Turkey
C) Hungary
D) Italy

Answer : B

Description :

The European Union leaders agreed to ban more than 2/3rd of Russian oil with immediate effect on the first day of the special meeting of the European Council in Brussels on May 31, 2022. While the European Council leaders attempted to persuade Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to back the Russian oil embargo after a month of negotiations, Orban said that no comprise had been reached yet. As per the current proposal, Russian oil arriving in the EU and in Hungary by pipeline will be exempted from sanctions. However, the Hungarian PM wants a guarantee that in case something happens to the pipeline carrying the Russian oil, then they would have the right to receive it by the sea and have it arrive from elsewhere.
