Greece ended its bailout programme in June 2018, but its troubles are continuing. As reported in the media, some member states are threatening to block the next €600 million repayments of ECB profits as agreed by the Eurogroup last year. The threat comes as several member states are reportedly unhappy about several issues in Greece, including privatizations, healthcare reform, minimum wage, and other structural reforms.

To ensure Greece sticks to hard policies (despite being out of any programme), some Eurogroup ministers are using the ECB profits money – which is legitimately owed to Greece – as blackmail.
