Hungary’s popular Prime Minister has labelled the European Union’s plan to make access to funding conditional on the maintenance of the rule of law as blackmail. He then repeated what retiring Soviet President Mikhael Gorbachev said by likening Brussels to the Soviet Union.
Prime Minister Victor Orban should know. Like millions of other Europeans, the EU’s most popular leader endured the Soviet Occupation of Europe. At the Yalta Conference of February 1945, US President Roosevelt and unelected half-American warlord Winston Churchill surrendered 21 nations to Soviet tyrant Joe Stalin.
The Hungarian PM, who was once arrested by the notorious Soviet police told state radio on Friday that his country cannot accept EU plans to link access to European funds with the rule of law criteria.
On November 5, unelected EU commissioners agreed that the next seven-year budget cycle would be conditional on the rule of law. This means that if EU nations rebel against demands made by the commissioners, dubbed commissars, the EU will be able to cut funding to governments that don’t respect ‘the rule of law’.
The PM said that he spoke to German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday and reaffirmed his objections to the plan.
He told Merkel that if this regulation, tabled by the European Parliament and the German presidency, is passed, ‘then we have made Soviet Union out of the EU.
This is not what we wanted. We did not create the EU for having the second Soviet Union.
This is unlikely to cut any ice with a NATO-sponsored German chancellor who as a young woman was an ardent member of the despised East German Communist Party before the reunification of Germany in 1991.
Orban supplemented his remarks by saying it was customary for the Soviet Union to subjectively impose conditions to punish republics and communist governments.
‘In the old days, in the communist world, all this was called anti-Soviet activity, and now they want to punish the Member States by referring to it as an anti-European activity.’
Stopping short of threatening to veto the budget, Orban said draft proposals were ‘without objective criteria. They want to blackmail countries on an ideological basis.’
Hungary is supported by Poland’s PM Mateusz Morawiecki in its opposition to the European commissioners’ draft regulation.
On Thursday, Morawiecki said that he had written to EU leaders to tell them that Poland could not accept the proposals.
‘Discretionary mechanisms, based on arbitrary, politically motivated criteria, cannot be accepted because they do not take into account the essential, substantive aspects of European law,’ he wrote on Facebook.
Negotiations for the 2021-2027 budgets are still on-going. The package of a total of €1.8 trillion will be the largest ever financed through the EU budget, and looks to rebuild the European economy after the Covid-19 crisis. Source
