At the end of February, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Budapest signing a gas supply agreement with the Hungarian PM Victor Orban.
There was no mention on the possibility of a Kremlin’s offer to Budapest a nuclear power plant to be financed, built and supplied by Russia state companies as anticipated by the Washington Post.
But today, the Hungarian Parliament voted a new legislation making secret for 30 years key details of a contract with Russia to expand its only nuclear power plant building two new reactors. The Paks nuclear plant will guarantee about half of Hungary’s electricity. (AP)
