According to the Guardian, a well known British newspaper, EU member states have expressed their wish to punish Poland and have said that the country should receive less from the fund set up to battle the economic effects of the virus due to its “rights record.”

“The EU’s pandemic recovery fund risks being derailed after an outcry within the bloc that Poland is set to be one of the biggest recipients despite its government’s attacks on the judiciary and LGBT community,” writes the paper, adding that “The Polish economy has been one of the least affected by the coronavirus crisis and Warsaw has faced heavy criticism over its approach to the rule of law but estimates suggest Poland will still only be behind Spain as the major winner from the rescue fund. A series of analyses circulating among the member states, obtained by the Guardian, has enraged a number of governments, with the European council president, Charles Michel, lobbied in recent days by at least two prime ministers including the Danish leader, Mette Frederiksen, to rethink the distribution of EU money and toughen the conditions on funding.”
