In contrast to the promise they made one and a half years ago, the European Commission still hasn’t given any money for Hungary’s border protection, while it continues to generously support “Soros NGOs,” Government Spokesman Istvan Hollik told a press conference on Saturday.
Hollik reminded that in autumn 2017, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban asked Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Union to support Hungary’s border protection with 50% of the costs because Hungary has been protecting the external border of the EU too. At that point, the costs of the border protection were 270 billion HUF.
According to the government spokesman, after a long exchange of letters Brussels approved one-third of the costs, but later withdrew its promise and only approved one-tenth – and still hasn’t paid anything. Hollik stressed that Hungary’s government expects the Commission to help based on the solidarity they always demand from Hungary.
The spokesman pointed out that at the same the time, Brussels “generously supports Soros NGOs which encourage migration”. He reminded that the European Parliament adopted a resolution in January in order to triple the financial support of Soros NGOs and bring in even more migrants to Europe.
