The European Union announced the start of formal measures to remove violations by Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic by refusing to receive refugees.
A statement issued by the EU said action must be taken because these countries refused to implement EU decisions by receiving their refugee quotas.
The statement said that among these measures the Union will impose large fines on the countries violating, the maximum penalty may apply to the Union is the deprivation of the right to vote in the International Council.
In 2015, the EU member states decided to settle 160,000 African migrants who were at that moment in Italy and Greece and divided the refugees into European countries according to their capacity, population density and other facts taken into consideration.
The share of Poland at that time was 7,000, the Czech Republic had a total of one thousand and 600 people, Hungary's share was 300,000 and Slovakia was 900 refugees, and these countries were currently opposed to receiving refugees.
The EU is trying to engage with "rejectionist" countries to find a way out of the crisis, but to no avail.
It should be noted that Poland, during the past two years, did not receive any refugees, while the Czech Republic received 12 people, Slovakia 16.
