Prime Minister Viktor Orbán spoke with his UK counterpart Boris Johnson by phone late Friday, the PM's press chief told state news wire MTI.

The leaders reviewed the situation in Ukraine which they both found concerning, Bertalan Havasi said.

Orbán said Hungary remains prepared to participate in the European Union's efforts to stop the war, but will not put the country's energy supply at risk. The matter is neither a "game of chance" nor "an experiment", he added.

Before any sanction that affects energy may be put on the table, Orbán said solutions must be found for member states' concerns.

Orbán and Johnson agreed to remain in close contact.
