Hungary: EU budget in its present form unacceptable

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's Chief of Staff, Antal Rogan, stated on Thursday the country could not accept the proposal of the European Union's 2021–27 budget in its present form.

His comment comes shortly after Budapest and Warsaw blocked the package on the grounds it violated the rule of law.

Orban later claimed the bloc intended to force its members to enforce further immigration in exchange for funds. His Polish counterpart Mateusz Morawiecki went on to describe the veto as an act against "European oligarchy."
