The European Commission has started long-awaited polls as to whether Poland and Hungary should continue to receive billions of euros from the EU budget due to problems with corruption and the rule of law, writes Reuters.

According to the Commission's documents, letters were sent to Warsaw and Budapest on Friday asking for clarifications under the recently adopted EU law, which allows for the suspension of the payment of EU money if it may be misspent.

The letters posted on Friday are only the first step in a long process, but they could threaten tens of billions of euros of EU cash for these countries over the next seven years. As a reminder, in another legal proceeding, the Commission has already suspended billions in subsidies to Poland and Hungary from the EU's Pandemic Reconstruction Fund, citing the same concerns about the rule of law and corruption.
