rollcall | Risch blocks Hungary arms package purchase over Sweden's stalled NATO bid, 15 June
"I decided that the sale of new U.S. military equipment to Hungary will be on hold. Hungary should take the actions necessary to allow Sweden into the alliance, and soon."
Congress hasn't yet received formal notification of the Hungarian arms sale, leaving it unclear what's in the package. But news reports said it was worth $735 million [HUF 250.4B] and included the Lockheed Martin-manufactured HIMARS rocket system. Demand for the high-mobility artillery rocket system has gone up sharply since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in early 2022.
