Europe wants to negotiate with the Russians, the United States against, and Ukraine in the middle

West in disgust: Washington has strengthened support for Kiev and introduced new sanctions against Moscow, and Europe intends to "agree" with the Kremlin.


The West is losing patience, says Richard Herzinger, the author of the material in «Die Welt».

Europe wants to negotiate with the Russians, the United States against, and Ukraine in the middle

The attention of the whole world is now absorbed in North Korea’s nuclear disarmament efforts, Catalonia’s intention to secede from Spain, or gun laws weapons in USA. Ukraine is hardly noticeable against the backdrop of such headlines, Herzinger notes. Meanwhile, the war in the east of the country continues, and there is debate about the future of Ukraine. The resolution of the issue may be important not only for Ukraine itself, but also for the future of the whole of Europe, Herzinger writes.

There is a clear trend: the “democratically elected” government in Kiev is increasingly becoming the “defending side” fighting against Putin’s “autocratic regime”, the author points out. The law on the restoration of Ukraine’s sovereignty over the occupied Donbas, enacted by President Poroshenko, caused a general stir because it describes Russia "as an aggressor and occupier of Ukrainian territory." Kremlin propaganda designated this act as a blow to the Minsk agreements, according to which Moscow is not a belligerent, but an intermediary in the negotiations. The author believes that Ukraine is still allowed to "call things with their names."

And yet, the Ukrainian government is under increasing pressure at the global level. The fact is that the “reform slowdown” is being criticized. This “slowdown” is actively criticized by populists and representatives of civil society. President Poroshenko is accused of "torpedoing" change and the desire to preserve oligarchic rule and get rich. Evidence of this is Poroshenko’s unwillingness to create a true judicial branch of power that is not subject to corruption.

The author agrees: both domestic and international pressure on the government in Kiev is required: the Poroshenko administration must “give way” to reform efforts. However, this pressure should be combined with incentives for “Ukraine’s closer integration into the EU”. After all, Poroshenko’s team still managed to restore both state finances and economic growth, albeit on a modest scale, the German sums up.

The United States has strengthened its support for Ukraine, and the US Congress has tightened sanctions against Moscow. Against this background, Europe seeks to “return” Russia to itself. But bad luck: if the EU writes off Ukraine for the sake of friendship with the Moscow “aggressor”, in essence, Putin will have a road to real “triumph”. His victory will prove that a democratic Europe in the future is no longer able to take any steps!

Browser concerns are probably groundless. Europe is hardly capable of pursuing an independent policy today, free from the dictations of Washington. Partly because in Europe the parade of sovereignties is ripening: the people are bored with living under dictation, under those “rules” that they did not approve and did not establish. And it is not Putin who “dictates” here.

The rapprochement of Europe with Russia without the will of the overseas hegemon is unlikely to take place. For example, it seems fiction that the EU will lift anti-Russian sanctions without approval of such a decision in Washington. After all, the states of Europe and the USA participating in the NATO bloc are military allies.

      Agy Agy. Having read the article, he returned to the 90s in Russia, only Poroshenko replaced with Yeltsin and all one to one. laughing But of course Putin is to blame. fellow

        EBN is a cheerful drunk, and Poroshenko is sad. But the results for the collapse of the country are similar.

    It’s a strange article, there isn’t a single sober thought among the heap of stamps. Although, by the fact that Europe itself is not an independent state. All European leaders who are completely absorbed by the American leadership can only speculate about the existence of some kind of Euro goals, but realize it?

    And against this background, Europe seeks to “return” Russia to itself.

    Such a micro-summary about what to expect in the future for Russia. Everything will be as always, they will put pressure on us, and all talk of contracts is ordinary demagogy.

    I respect the author for interesting collections, but here he is wrong. The reason for sovereignty is not Washington's politics. Because no one leaves the EU jurisdiction.

    Europe is hardly capable of pursuing an independent policy today, free from dictation of Washington.

    And that's it. Therefore, in vain the European journalists, political scientists, experts lose their "precious" time once again meditating on what has long been understood. As long as the United States benefits Ukraine as anti Russia (and will always be beneficial whenever possible), then Europe will follow in the wake of American politics.
