with moscow tightening its grip on the east new battle lines and now being drawn the european union is still divided over banning russian oil. leaders are meeting and brussels to agree on a 6th round of economic sanctions against moscow. but hungary is resisting an oil embargo because it's heavily dependent on supplies from russia. oil embargo, or no oil embargo. e leaders will have their eye on this man to day hungarian prime minister victor all been. well, several you nations say facing our dressing, oil will get expensive. hunger is the only one still open, the blocking it. and urban didn't give his fellow leaders much hope. this will change at this summit. thar, now did he's in agreement. oh, well, now i don't know about that would be acceptable at the moment that we will
7:05 pm
compromise with women people to get hungry on side. the ear commission has already watered down its proposal. only russian oil transported by c would be targeted and pipeline oil would be excluded. something which would greatly benefit landlocked hungary the central european country is heavily dependent on russian energy. but that's not enough for organ. he said hungary wanted oil supply guarantees. it's a demand. leaders don't think they'll find a solution for this summit. my expectations are low that it will be solved in the next 48 hours. but i am confident that they're after. there will be a possibility german, gentler or la shoulds, however, hasn't given up ho. he and his colleagues will come up with the united decision elizabeth issue from what i'm hearing itself, if they could be a consensus given crime sooner or later. there will be want to have the distinct
7:06 pm
from hockey. either you or countries are getting increasingly irritated. the blog is moving forward. so slowly latvia, which as a border with russia, has been pushing for an embargo on all russian energy. it's only money ukrainians are paying with our lives. and if we get bogged down only in thinking about money, then what is the sense of our union? besides oil leaders are discussing more financial support for ukraine and global food shortages due to the war. but despite a long agenda, it is the deadlock with hungary that overshadows the discussions and from brussels. i'm joined now by any piranha boutique or for a member of the european parliament foreign affairs committee. so very good to have you with us. now sadly, this is not the 1st time that victor alban has tried to push his interest against the other members of the european union. how long can the you accept that?
7:07 pm
well, look, we should differentiates between justified concerns that hungary as a land law country. thus in the town and the political games that may be played in order to under caught the solidarity of the union. that's why i think that we should not talk about a watering down of the original proposal from commission. i think the new compromise that commission has put on the table would indeed take into account justified interests of hungry and other lat, blocked nations. and i think at this very moment where it's really difficult to move forward, even though we urgently sure. there's no point in just shouting more loudly from
7:08 pm
the roof top. we have to insist on negotiated until we find a conclusive solution. is there an alternative to an oil embargo, an alternative in order to put more pressure on vladimir putin just in case hungary won't agree. look, there's just one alternative to an oil embargo, which is no oral embargo. and that's obviously not a better solution. and whatever else we might come up with as ideas and proposals in order to move forward together the $27.00 half to agree. so i don't think we should fantasize about moving around hungary, they have us at a position where we need to negotiate to achieve a common proposal that can be supported by all the 20. so of course that is always the a mentor. it's also the needs of the set up of the european union that all it's
7:09 pm
a 27 member states. find common ground in agree, but let me just put this to you. russia has just stopped sending gas to the netherlands, or at least starting from tomorrow. buggery and poland already exempt. why is the waiting for russia to stop its supply one country after the other before including gas in the sanctions? look, i think you're miss representing the state of play of the state of the discussions where not postponing 8 decisions that we could be taking a just for the sake of beth. there are concerns from many important countries, including my own, which has demonstrated a ad nauseum that it is not possible to stop russian gas import right now. and without being able to find out a substitute. and as long as this is not the case,
7:10 pm
i think the talking of war strongly more radically doesn't solve a single problem. so i think we should go step by step. we should now afford a compromise to facilitate the oil embargo, which is certainly much more important economically for cochin because it gives him much more revenue than the gas business dos at if you succeed. if the i'd embargo come sir about it, will it actually change anything in moscow? well, certainly it will change the situation of the russian budget of the russian federations budget relies heavily on those um the, the revenue that they the rise from exporting fossil fuels. right?
7:11 pm

society in its will to change. he knows in the end, there are only 2 options with the, i mean it's a relatively simple choice, rather, less cost of either leave things as they are in columbia while in new york, which in my opinion is more corruption. you're more violence, more hunger math or, or we can change colombia, columbia. federal is a former member of the em 19 gorilla movement. and a former mayor of bo gotta like in his presidential campaign, he has vowed profound economic and social change. a petro presidency would be historic, in more ways than one. his running mate, francy, or marquez, is hoping to become columbia's 1st ever black female vice president. but honestly, the probably any good for us is a black community. it is
