EU Plans to Cut Funds of Resistant Countries; Poland, Hungary Targeted for Rejecting Rules

European Union (EU) countries which rebel against Brussels could have parts of their EU subsidies "frozen" under new plans, the Express (British) website reports today (April 29, 2018).

Eastern EU states -- including Poland and Hungary -- would be punished under the proposals if they are deemed to have fallen short of the bloc's "democratic values."

The proposals would allow the EU to freeze access to funding for EU projects.

Hungary has clashed with the EU by refusing to accept refugees; Poland has angered the EU by implementing controversial judicial reforms judged anti-democratic by the European Commission.
