"Hungary will continue to be a good partner to Russia in global issues and in other issues as well," Orbán reportedly said.

Orbán visited the country on the occasion of the 2015 World Aquatics Championships in Kazan, and met Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Orbán noted that the championships event was “a good opportunity to meet and discuss current issues”.

Relations between Russia and Hungary have remained good despite existing conflicts with the European Union, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said after meeting, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.

Medvedev said Hungary and Russia maintain cooperation in a number of areas including energy and agriculture, and "this is equally beneficial to our countries and nations".
