Media: Poland received an unexpected strong blow from the European Union

The German newspaper “Die Welt” considered that the EU’s refusal to recognize Polish legislation for its inconsistency with the laws of the Union was an unexpected and heavy blow to Warsaw.

The newspaper reported Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Yorova described the law adopted by Poland as “contrary to the position of the European Union, therefore Warsaw must once again revise the provisions of its legislation, otherwise we will not pay it.”

According to media reports, representatives of the European Commission explained that “the conditions for the payment of funds from the European Recovery Fund to Poland have not been met.”

And it seemed that Poland, after the visit of European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to Warsaw, would eventually receive 35 billion euros from the European Covid fund, which it so badly needed.

The newspaper notes that “according to the Polish Statistical Office, inflation in May amounted to 13.9 percent, which is one of the highest rates in Europe. In addition, it received about 4 million refugees from Ukraine, which was a big burden for it.”

In Brussels, they came to the conclusion that “we should no longer withhold funds from Poland, which has become the most important partner of Ukraine and the legislator of European politics.”

In July 2021, the European Court of Justice demanded the immediate closure of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court of Poland, noting that the activities of the chamber, which may affect the professional activities of judges, threaten their independence and impartiality.

Later, Polish President Andrzej Duda signed a law on the liquidation of the disciplinary chamber of the Supreme Court, as the European Commission imposed a fine on Warsaw.
