European Parliament offered to deprive Hungary of a right to vote in the EU Council because of the possible flagrant violation of fundamental democratic values of the EU. According to the draft resolution of the European Parliament, Ukrinform reports. 

'The European Parliament convinced that the current level of corruption, the lack of transparency and accountability regarding the government finance, and also an improper expenditure and overvaluation of financial programs harm the financial resources of the EU in Hungary; believes that this may represent the violation of values defined in Article 2 of the Treaty on EU with the provision of a warrant for the application of Article 7 of the Treaty on the EU,' reads the message.

Debates on this occasion will take place on September 11, the voting on September 12.  

Reportedly, European Commissioner for Budget and Humanitarian resources Günther Oettinger claimed that the authorities of Hungary, Italy, Poland and Romania want to destroy the EU.
