Russian President Vladimir Putin paid a short visit to Budapest on Thursday. He was welcomed by Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán. According to Hungarian officials, talks largely focused on trade, including sales of Russian gas and a deal for Russia to build a nuclear power station in Hungary.

Viktor Orbán, who is the only leader in the EU to regularly meet with Vladimir Putin, lamented the economic costs of European Union sanctions against Russia.

Hungarian opposition parties protested against the visit, suspecting behind-the-scenes deals between the two leaders.
