Earlier, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said Budapest was convinced that new packages of European Union sanctions against Moscow were not needed.

He stressed that anti-Russian rhetoric is adopted in the EU by collective decisions of the capitals of the Union countries, and not so much by the country that chairs the EU Council.

"Therefore, it is impossible to talk about any possible rollback in broad terms," RIA Novosti quoted Logvinov as saying.

According to him, the European Union will not be able to completely abandon gas supplies from Russia, including LNG, in the near future.
