The government wants to make Hungary “China’s battery colony”, the deputy parliamentary group leader of opposition LMP said at a press conference in Budapest.
Máté Kanász-Nagy said the government is “putting the country in debt to the Russians for the rest of the century” so the expanded Paks nuclear power plant can power “Chinese battery factories”.
He said a resolution published in the official gazette, Magyar Közlöny, earmarking 115 billion forints (EUR 303m) for an upgrade of power lines “serves to deliver high-voltage electricity from Paks to Debrecen”, where construction of a big Chinese battery plant is underway.
