Hungary calls Russian oil ban an economic “atomic bomb”

From the BBC World Service: The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban vowed to veto current EU proposals to phase out imports of Russian oil, saying they would be devastating to Eastern European countries which rely heavily on the fuel. Plus, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says a sixth sanctions package against Russia will go ahead, even if it takes longer than expected. And, we visit a German oil refinery that's still very reliant on Russian oil.
