MOSCOW, February 20. /TASS/. Showy solidarity in sanctions against Russia infringes on interests of lots of European countries, Speaker of the State Duma Sergey Naryshkin said.

"Sham solidarity in sanctions against Russia has little in common with reality as it encroaches on the national interests of lots of European countries and they are determined to fight for their rights," Naryshkin said in an article published by Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on Friday.

Naryshkin wrote in his article about Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s reaction to the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to that European country.

"Let me mention just one of his (Orban’s) statements — ‘Russia’s isolation from Europe does not make sense’," he said. "I think Russian experts were not the only ones who appreciated ‘this verbal assault’ on Mr. Obama’s main pivot in his anti-Russian campaign," the speaker said noting another Orban’s statement that Europe remained non-competitive without cooperation with Russia.

Meanwhile, "European politicians have gotten stuck deep in the Ukraine conflict and are riven by personal political ambitions very much," he said.
