SATURDAY 10/30, 3:50 PM (SESSION 20)

Director: Michael Wech
Producer: Leopold Hoesch

Description:

It is a struggle about power and billions. Since the summer of 2020, the majority of the EU states have been fighting to make the granting of EU funds conditional. Only those who abide by the rule of law should receive funds in the future. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is vehemently opposed. For good reasons? The European community of values is struggling over its position. For months. With his blackmailing veto, Orban plunges into a deep crisis, in which Chancellor Merkel finally mediates. Is it appeasement with the autocrat? A search for clues throughout Europe.
