Former Polish President and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Lech Walesa suggested that the European Union should dissolve itself to create a new bloc without Poland and Hungary.
In an interview with the Polish portal Interia about the European Commission finally approving the National Reconstruction Plan for Poland, Walesa, who was president between 1990 and 1995, said that sending billions of euros in investments to Warsaw would be a “failure” for the EU. In his opinion, these funds will be stolen “anyway” and thus “without the rule of law, it makes no sense to waste billions of euros.”
“The Union, instead of compromising with Poland, should dissolve itself and, moments later, create a new bloc based on Germany and France, but without Poland and Hungary,” he said.
If Poland still wanted to join the new union, Walesa argued, they would have to “accept obligations.”
The founder and longtime leader of the Solidarity Trade Union, known for his highly critical stance towards the current Polish leadership, said that his country is “losing billions due to a few frivolous politicians.”
