Unlocking funds from the KPO

The funds blocked for Poland so far include not only EUR 60 billion from the KPO, but also EUR 76 billion of funds from the cohesion policy, i.e. a total of approximately PLN 600 billion. On Thursday, the European Commission issued a preliminary positive assessment of Poland’s first application for payments from the Reconstruction Fund.

The Commission found that Poland had met the so-called milestones, including regarding the independence of the judicial system, which allows funds to be disbursed as part of the first payment request. In the next step, the decision to transfer funds to Poland will have to be accepted by the member states within the Council.
