In a video posted on his Facebook account, Mr Orbán said at its Wednesday meeting the cabinet dealt with the issue of fuel and food prices. He stressed that in the whole of Europe prices are rising, the primary cause of which is the war, and until the war ends, prices will keep rising.
“We, however, can’t just sit back and watch this happen without doing anything about it. In Hungary the government is doing everything it can to protect families from the consequences of price rises,” the Prime Minister stated, adding that this is why they introduced price restrictions or price caps in the case of fuel and certain fundamental food products; however, the time limits of these will expire soon.
“Today we had to make a decision about what should happen next. We have decided to extend our measures seeking to cap prices until 1 July in the case of both product categories, meaning that the prices of both fuel and the selected food industry products will remain unchanged until 1 July. We’re doing everything we can to protect families,” Mr Orbán stressed.
