Juri Ratas: Estonia will not support the idea of ​​creating an “EU army”


Speaking at a press conference in Tallinn, Jüri Ratas commented on the idea of ​​creating a pan-European army, stating that he does not support this idea, since by its actions such an army "will simply duplicate the actions of NATO." It is necessary to create other projects in which the European Union will cooperate with the alliance, and not duplicate it, he added. Europe is under the protection of the alliance.

Austria also refused to participate in the creation of a pan-European army, explaining its refusal to the neutral status of the country. At the same time, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, said that NATO does not see the need for the European Union to create duplicate military structures.

The idea of ​​creating an "EU army," independent of the United States, was proposed by the French president, Emmanuel Macron, explaining that protection from the Russian, Chinese and American threats, including in the field of cyber security. The idea of ​​Macron was supported by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but Washington not only opposed, but also criticized the proposal.

    Who would doubt that. I am not a "wang", but even then I will guess at once who else will probably oppose. Just look at the list of US pocket dogs.

            Germany, that’s understandable. It is the economic center of the EU, and Frau is its chancellor. And no matter what the others think, no matter how their cheeks are puffed up, Germany dictates the rules. Here Napoleonchik where climbs, it is not clear. France, although it did without a crisis, but its economy barely provides stability, and is in uncertain balance. Or do the laurels of the predecessor haunt Macaron?

      It's not just about pocket mongrels - it's grandmas! That is, a beggar of Estonia will have to pay 2% of GDP to NATO, what Trump requires, and to the EU army, for example 2% - Germany and France will pull this and will throw 2% of the Baltic rogues into Trump’s pocket, that is, NATO! In short, the guys from normal countries finally understood - the Swedes were not stupid when they sold this burden to Peter I - she only required money, but there was only one zilch on the exhaust! So it is now - nobody needs the Baltic States, but you won’t say so in the open! Here old Europe comes up with all sorts of perversions to get rid of these rogues! laughing

      That's right, Russophobia and "divide and conquer" in Europe is generously paid for by the State Department, and many live by this ..
      And Europe is terribly afraid of "evil Russians", we are directly targeted from overseas with anyone and in any way.
      And Europe is shrouded in US bases, NATO .. ​​And who will be under the first blow, Europe understands perfectly!

        Lech .... I do not think so. This is a simplification of the picture. If you think that you can cope and get along with 29 countries, with different interests, culture and economy, then this is a misconception. Look at the experience of the Russian Federation to get along with the CIS countries although you have a common language and past. And in the EU it’s getting harder ...

      a lot of small dogs in a battle a shepherd will not replace, but they will easily get a neighbor by barking, and it is much more effective than one big dog.
      Right there it ... "We have our own voice!"
      And in neighboring Latvia ...
      ...
      And Romania ...

      Total of 26 NATO members, may be against 1 large member - the United States and 23 small ... and only two FOR.
      So what, what are the largest economies of the EU?
      So what if each of them has a good hundred times more economy than countries like Estonia?
      So what if Estonia exists only thanks to subsidies from these countries?
      Most importantly, she has a voice!
      And for the "candy wrapper with the image of the American president" they will give their vote ...

    And how will the pan-European army "duplicate NATO" if it joins NATO on the example of any country now? For me, this is how they want to structure the scattered European part of the Alliance, which is undoubtedly a logical step.
    On the whole, the question, as I understood it, is the same in the distribution of funds, the lion's share of which now goes to the USA.
    Those. All NATO countries are discounted at 4% of GDP to the NATO budget, which in itself is not small. And since the United States is the main player in NATO, all the money goes to them, in addition, they dictate what equipment and military products NATO should buy (NATO standards), and in order to shove a couple of Rafale, Eurofighter or European-made Leopard tanks into NATO to ask permission from the United States, and the purchase of this equipment is not for euros, but for dollars. Those. in order for France to buy the Rafal fighter on their own, they first need to buy US dollars and then buy Rafal for these dollars instead of just buying it for their own euros.
    And Macron and Merkel think correctly they want their European structure in NATO, similar to the USA and on an equal footing with it, because in addition to money, influence, equality, they will receive even less protection from external opponents, because it’s sacred to only rely on the USA - it’s dumb, but what if they simply blame them, as the British from Dunkirk did at one time?
