100 euros for a Ukrainian refugee, 20 thousand euro fine for not accepting a migrant from Africa

Niezalezna(.)pl. Arkadiusz Mularczyk, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, in an interview on Daily Signals on Polish Radio said:

"If we received EUR 100 from the EU for the Ukrainian refugees we accept, and if we are to pay EUR 22,000 to the EU for not accepting a refugee from Africa who has nothing to do with our culture and civilization, these actions are hostile towards some EU countries. This is a form of discrimination and even racism."

A few days ago, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz defended plans for asylum procedures, i.e. the so-called "mandatory solidarity" on the EU's external borders . He declared that this was "a historic agreement because it shows that the EU can overcome differences even on the most controversial issues." He added that "Germany will also be relieved by such a new and fair system, because until now we have been the main destination of largely uncontrolled internal migration in the Schengen area."

Mularczyk commented on Sholz's statements: 

"Everyone who does not want to work (in Germany) will be relocated to other countries, including Poland. They are to be in camps here, and if we do not accept them, we are to pay 22,000 euros. And what's more, if they escape from the camp to Germany, we have to pay anyway and take them back to Poland. This is an extremely simple, as the classic used to say, example of how you can heroically solve problems that you created yourself. Not so long ago Germany and Chancellor Merkel opened the borders of the entire EU to these immigrants."
