No worries I don't think it's meant to be quantified. Admission into the EU of the eastern countries was possible after they satisfied certain requirements regarding the functioning of democracy, the rule of law, citizen's rights and so on. Lately, in some countries, outrageous deviations from those left everyone perplexed. Some deviations aren't that overt, for example changing details on how chief prosecutors are appointed. Many of those things escape the great public. But they reflect strongly on how big corruption cases are handled. The EU had no strong sanctions for those cases, maybe because nobody expected that. Now the things are changing and money will be conditioned by that.
