Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi said the time has come for the EU to make funding available that Hungary and Poland are entitled to in light of the dangerous situation connected with the war in Ukraine.
“The series of attacks and threats to withhold EU funding … was unacceptable before Russia’s war against Ukraine,” Hidvéghi said in Brussels, adding that such attacks in the meantime were “scandalous”. People arriving in EU territory with the largest ever refugee wave from Ukraine are being received and assisted in central European countries, he said. “In this situation, it is particularly important that the EU should demonstrate its political maturity,” Hidvéghi said, adding that “it is unity that is needed this time”.
