can't wait for more political debates on how countries are not this exact type of fish but should be the other

There is a EU fish, but also fishes for some EU members. This means some countries are represented twice, while some are not. I object this unfair depiction!

It makes sense though, since there is help by the EU (as an organization) financed by money from the EU-funds and aditionally most memberstates (only most because hungary exists and has a shitty government) give assistance by themselves.

Italy said they would be filing for reimbursement of what they paid from their own pocket by the EU, so there's that.

What? This is news to me, do you have a source?


u/RoyBeer Germany Jan 25 '23

I heard it in the radio and from what they said it's absolutely within their good right to do so as well. Something about european stability or security fund IIRC

It was said side by side to Italy having officially requested permission to give their leopard tanks to Ukraine.
