Currently, the EU has mostly been providing financial support to Eastern
European states, which are now being accused of their reluctance to
admit refugees and of continuous
violation of the basic values upon which the EU was supposedly founded.
It’s been reported that the Polish national government has been the
biggest troublemaker from the point of view of the European Commission.
In general, both Brussels along with most developed European states are
increasingly dissatisfied with signs of insubordination by Eastern
European states. For more than a month, politicians from several
countries of Western Europe, including the newly elected French
President Emmanuel Macron, have been demanding financial sanctions be
introduced against those unwilling to follow Brussels.
