Justice Minister Judit Varga said the European Union introducing a rule of law mechanism for the distribution of EU funds is “about blackmail”.

In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the minister commented on a debate about linking the rule of law to the distribution of EU funds. “Poland and Hungary got to feel what it is really about: Not about values, but about the usual blackmail of those countries that do not follow the majority trend in fields such as migration or the family," the minister said.
