Background & Development of the Conflict
The rogue three EU member states are back in the news. This time it is in regard to protests closing border crossings with Ukraine.
While people have been focusing on the potential changes in Poland due to the election, Hungary will be impacted as well. The two member states have rebelled against the EU together for years yet Hungary may now find itself alone.
Far-left Robert Fico and SMER-SSD win the Slovak national election. He is pro-Putin and is against assistance to Ukraine.
The European Union’s perspective on China has undergone a notable transformation in recent years. This change can be attributed to the escalating tensions between the United States and China, mounting concerns over human rights violations, and the backdrop of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the Chinese stance. The EU must reassess its China strategy amid these shifting dynamics.
Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia have taken it upon themselves to unilaterally ban grain and agricultural products from Ukraine. Ukraine has filed a complaint with the WTO and the EU may defend them while simultaneously start an infringement procedure against them.
Ukrainians who fled the war went to a large number of EU member states including Czechia. While many have found jobs others continue to struggle due to the language barrier and the national government continues to cut financial assistance for Ukrainians who temporarily relocated to Czechia.
