Hungary took over the rotating EU Council Presidency on July 1. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán provoked EU and NATO companions on Friday with an uncoordinated go to to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen made it clear that she sees Orbán's solo motion as a menace to the credibility of the European Union. Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) made it clear that Orbán was travelling to Putin as Prime Minister of Hungary and never as a international coverage consultant of the EU.
