Poland should not receive high COVID-19 funds due to human rights violations against LGBT – EU-member states

Several member states of the European Union (EU) have expressed disappointment after learning that Poland is set to receive a big recovery fund from coronavirus disease (COVID-19), especially since they said the country has been active in violating the rights of LGBT.

In a report by the guardian, Poland will only be behind Spain in receiving the biggest rescue fund despite its economy being least affected by the crisis.

“Poland is making a mockery of our values and gets rewarded for it. That is unacceptable. Southern Europe bears the brunt of the COVID-19 crisis, the migration crisis and the climate crisis but somehow ends up empty-handed,” The Guardian quoted an EU-member diplomat.

The Polish government, according to the report, is set to receive EUR37 billion in COVID-19 rescue grants, and is expected to contribute around EUR21 billion, receiving a net worth of EUR16 billion.

According to EU member diplomats, Polish President Andrzej Duda has been attacking the LGBT community in the country, saying that they undermine Polish traditional values and identity.

The Guardian added in its report that majority of the municipalities in Poland have declared themselves “LGBT-free,” after passing resolutions against queer ideologies.

“A country that trampled the rule of law, shuns responsibility on climate, shows no solidarity in migration and is making a mockery of the claim that the EU is a community of values sees the money ship sailing in. We are talking about a country whose president is seeking re-election on the promise to impose gay-free zones. It’s concerning that the EU finds no better way of dealing with this situation. Not a pretty picture,” The Guardian quoted another senior EU diplomat.
