EU treats Romania as a colony

Summary of Disinformation

The EU treats Romania as a colony, it would be happy to have a “Romxit” and to steal the country’s resources. George Soros is financing protests in Romania.

Disproof

No evidence to support the claims. Romania is an EU member state. In 2015 Romania received €6.54 billion in EU spending. It contributed €1.32 billion to the EU budget and also collected €170 million in customs and farm trade duties on the EU's behalf, of which it retained 25% as an administrative fee. www.europarl.europa.eu/external/html/budgetataglance/default_en.html#romania
