Viktor Orbán’s opposition to sanctions against Russia has led to calls for Hungary to be expelled from the European Union. But would this really serve the EU’s interests? Derrick Wyatt argues that while there is a need to put pressure on member states that defy the rule of law and violate human rights, the EU has no power to expel a member state, and probably wouldn’t want to even if it could. National sentiments and national governments change, and the EU is in it for the long haul.
