Toni Skoric (FNF):
Is State of Emergency in Hungary Really Over?
the Hungarian parliament voted to end the state of emergency, which gave the government the power to decide by decree on issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The emergency legislation adopted in March was heavily criticized because it did not have a clear end date.

Marton Schlanger (Republikon Institute):
EU Versus COVID-19: European Virus Response
During the last few months, we have seen countless articles written on certain aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Eeven people who do not normally follow world news are knowledgeable in the virus policy of certain countries, be it the United States’ stimulus checks or Sweden’s controversial approach.

Krassen Stanchev (IME):
Georgia is becoming, once again, a country to be watched by those of us who value liberty and the expansion of freedom and prosperity. Back in the fall and winter of 2019, there was little news about Georgia in the European and Central European media.
Ieva Valaskaite (LFMI):
The COVID-19 pandemic has not only limited our liberties, but also liberated creativity. Vilnius mayor and LFMI’s ex-president has allowed turning the whole city into a giant outdoor café and let businesses to exploit parks and squares for this purpose.
Radoslaw Sikorski (Liberte!):
Donald Trump allegedly decided to withdraw more than 9,000 American soldiers from Germany. Perhaps some of the withdrawn soldiers will go to Poland. But if someone thinks that Poland will benefit from the whole situation, they are wrong. Here’s why.

Natalie Marakova (FNF):
Presidential Election in Poland: Trzaskowski – Liberal Alternative to Duda
Trzaskowski mastered the first challenge splendidly: within a few days he collected more than 1.6 million signatures and quickly became the greatest challenger to the incumbent Duda.

Vitaliy Kravchuk (IERPC):
The COVID-19 pandemic has already inflicted severe damage on the Ukrainian economy despite relatively mild public health implications so far. The number of new COVID-19 cases seems to have stabilized over the last few weeks, and the number of hospitalizations does not seem to strain the healthcare system.
Gia Jandieri (NESG):
The story of Georgia should be an example to all developing nations that any country with the will to do so can take charge of its own tax system and, without the aide or interference of international organizations, create the conditions for economic growth and prosperity.
