The budget is used for different purposes, including growth and job creation, environment sustainability and investment to develop the economy and rural areas.
The MMF (Multiannual Financial Framework) sets the spending priorities and the Commission, with the Council and the Parliament decide which would be the budget.

The Economic and Monetary Union coordinates the economic and fiscal policies with the euro.

The independent European Central Bank is in charge of maintaining price stability and sets the interest rates.

Each country decides its budget, but there are common rules on public finances.
Who is in charge?
Economic Monetary Union
Increase the economic well-being of the businesses and the people in the European Union. The member countries form what is known as a single market, this means that they have an integrated economy and all of them coordinate the economic policy.

• International Traditional Actor (Nation-Sate)
• Centripetal Force
• Germany’s strict economic management has made this country very powerful with a stable economy. Germany, trying to stop the sinking of the EU is trying to impose order in the European Union.
• Example: German proposal to the EU to send a commissioner to supplant the Greek government, controlling Greece’s taxes,
debts and economic spending levels.

• International Traditional Actor (Nation-Sate)
• Centrifugal Force
• Greece is a centrifugal force in the European economic
crisis because it has using more money that what it has and this is leading to a bankrupt in all EU countries due to the fact that it borrowing tons of money from the European Central Bank most of it coming from Germany

• Non-Traditional (Intergovernmental Organization
• Centripetal Force
• Its main goal was to unify Western Europe, promoting social, political and economic union
and also eliminating economic, trade and immigration barriers by eliminating border restrictions. (making the principal currency the Euro).

I think that the conflict in Russia has a direct effect in the European Crisis. Many countries in Europe have economic relations with Russia and this is making the conflict chronic.
It's difficult to give a solution to the conflict, but in order to stop it, the union between countries is necessary and also to look for markets outside Europe because the conflict in Russia will continue for more decades.
