According to the newspaper, the bill on sanctions, which is being prepared by congressmen from the Republican and Democratic parties, would include the names of former government officials and supporters.

Most of them are associated with the Hungarian prime minister's party Fidesz. However, specific names have not been disclosed yet, the journalists write.

They began preparing such an initiative last year, and the bill is expected to be submitted to Congress in May. The unnamed officials told the newspaper in a commentary that the sanctions could receive broad support in the U.S. parliament.
