Belarus: 300 Polish Scholarships Not Enough

EM of TOL's Belarus Blog writes that 300 Belarusian students will receive scholarships to attend Polish universities this year, but – a lot more could (and should, according to the blogger) be done by the EU: “Why is it so hard to find an extra 100,000 Euros and actually provide scholarships for a hundred of Belarusians to study those languages inside the EU? Instead, the EU will slash this money to translate its documents into Latin–this is the sort of creative stupidity, which seems to preoccupy people in Brussels.”
