Using vulnerable migrants as part of a hybrid attack goes beyond contempt. The EU will not accept any attempt to exploit migrants, Michel said on Twitter yesterday, expressing full solidarity with EU member states. Last night, in a speech in Berlin, Michel opened to the construction of physical infrastructures on the borders with EU funds: hypotheses that von der Leyen had categorically ruled out.
