George Soros, interviewed by Republic, states that the EU must help our country stop the Salvini’s populism: “What would Europe be without Italy?”. The crisis of coronavirus can accelerate a new Cold War between China and the United States? An attitude, that of Salvini, writes the newspaper, which, after Brexit, could lead toItalexit? “No need to cry over spilled milk, but it is important to prevent other countries from following the path of Great Britain and Italy is at the top of my worries. The leader of the League, Matteo Salvini, is working to get your country out of the euro and the EU. Fortunately, his personal popularity has diminished since he left the government, “says Soros, who also has a couple of criticisms of theEU.
“Italy has always been the most pro-European country. The Italians, for excellent reasons, had more confidence in Europe than in their own governments, but were mistreated during the refugee emergency. The EU left all the burden on it of the first country in which refugees arrivedi, without any burden sharing. Result, the Italians voted for Salvini and for the 5 Stars. Then the loosening of state aid rules, which favors Germany, was particularly unfair to Italy, the European country hardest hit by the COVID-19“.
