    Will Poland throw Hungary out of V4?

    123.jpg
    In recent years, in the European Union there has been a rift between countries of Eastern Europe and Western European nations that are considered as the founders of the EU. Brussels' migration policy, including the decision on migrant distribution quotas for European member states, has become a major stumbling block. Members of the Visegrad Group (V4) - Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia - are opposed to providing shelter for Muslim communities on their territory as they persist in preserving Christian identity of Europe. And if leaderships in Prague and Bratislava as more reserved and careful ones have never been in direct confrontation with Brussels, then Warsaw and Budapest have pursued their national policy without regard for the EU. It should be noted that the EU has even imposed punitive sanctions against these two countries. Hungary has been penalized for its undemocratic domestic policy orientation, and Poland - for its judicial reform, which, in the view of Brussels, violates democratic principles of separation of powers and poses danger to the rule of law in the country.

    However, current rhetoric of Poland's authorities has changed dramatically. Poland decided to move away from confrontation with the European Union. For instance, recently the implementation of judicial reform measures has been suspended upon request from Brussels. Moreover, Warsaw has embarked in earnest on the issues of fighting against centrifugal tendencies in Europe and advancing European democratic values. With assistance from Ukraine's authorities, Poland is conducting a campaign to counter the activities of media and the government of Viktor Orbán as the latter continues to take a strong stand against Brussels' position towards migrants. It is reported that, working together, Ukrainians and Poles wish to do all possible to exclude Hungary from V4. And even a special information campaign to discredit Hungary's authorities has been launched.

    The reaction from Warsaw's colleagues in V4 is unknown, yet. But despite the assistance of Kiev, it is unlikely that Poland will be able to exclude Hungary from V4 without support from other members of the Visegrad Group. Nevertheless, if anyone else in V4 supports the initiative, then Poles will maximize the chances for achieving their goal.

    Short answer: no
    Long answer: Poland and Brussels are still very much at odds, and Poland has very little say in Brussels - and by extension, the EU - and the EU would never allow it, particularly if it were Poland proposing such a measure, because all V4 countries are EU members as well. And the EU wouldn't be able to control Hungary as well.

    As Abbaz said - no.

    The source link used in the OP Is Ukrainian, and it's talking bull.

    There is literally nothing to this story.

    The OP source is correct.....

    Already now for five years, the aggressive policy of Moscow around the world threatens global security and democratic values. The sanctions have been only partially effective, and the level of threat to global stability has steadily increased. Ukraine, from the beginning of military aggression in the Crimea and in the Donbas, fully realized the scale of the tragedy and for five years has opposed the Kremlin military monster. It seems that now other countries have also begun to realize the scale of the catastrophe, and an anti-Russian coalition has begun to be created within the European Union. Its activities are still only informational, but practice shows that such a counteraction to the Kremlin agent is now vital to Europe. Particularly noteworthy is the high involvement of Ukraine in such processes, because our country is extremely interested in victories on diplomatic fronts, because it will also bring about a military victory over the aggressor. Moreover, our country was able to significantly weaken Moscow's position in Europe. Judging by the message of the head of Ukraine's Department of Foreign Policy and European Integration representative Igor Zhovkva in Warsaw, this is understood and valued. One can only hope that further cooperation will in fact allow Ukraine to take a proper place in the European family and achieve a complete and unconditional victory over the invader not only on the battlefield, but also in the hearts and minds of Europeans.
    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just visited Slovakia and Hungary, and had some words with Hungarian authoritarian Viktor Orban over his behaviors and his continuous attacks on democracy and the European Union.
