Relations between Poland and the European Union are increasingly flawed after the Polish Supreme Court issued a ruling that rejects the supremacy of EU law. A verdict that strengthened the hypothesis of a Polexit, an exit from the Union, which however is splitting the population of the Eastern European country, where in recent days thousands of people took to the streets to ask the government to mend the relations with Brussels.

The situation is being dealt with by the European Parliament, with the President of the Commission Ursula von der Leyen who stressed that “by joining the European Union, the Poles put their trust in this project, thinking and expecting that it would rightly defend their rights. The Commission is the guardian of the treaty and it is therefore my duty to protect the rights of EU citizens, wherever they live on the territory of the Union “.

The Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was also present at the session, rejecting what he calls the EU “language of threats and impositions” on the rule of law. Reference to the hypotheses of closure of the European taps in Warsaw as regards the disbursements of the Recovery Fund.

“I do not agree that politicians threaten and terrorize Poland. Blackmail has become a method of doing politics towards some member states, but this is not how democracies act,” said Morawiecki. Adding: “We are a country. proud. We paid many victims for our struggle for democracy. We saved Paris and Berlin from the Bolshevik attacks “, fought” against the Third Reich “and fought even when” Solidarity gave hope to overthrow the Russian totalitarian system “.
