Possible collapse of the EU and the Russian phenomenon: what the European press writes today

131

Nothing can stop the work of real journalists: neither crisis, nor war, nor even a pandemic of the deadly virus. And today, our colleagues continue to work in Europe, covered by the invasion of COVID-19. What topics are currently the most relevant for the local media?


Currently, when the coronavirus has turned into a real disaster, common to all EU countries, no one is trying to build versions about how much the disease will affect a particular state, as was done a few weeks ago. It should be noted that much less attention on the pages of newspapers and electronic publications is paid to the discussion of the topic of possible consequences for the economy and finance of the Old World: it is clear to everyone that nothing good can be expected. And the forecasts of profile analysts only make depression, almost every day transforming in progression “from bad to worse”.

For example, the French Le Figaro, who attracts a well-known political and statesman Pierre Lellouche as an expert in assessing the situation, publishes his words that after the pandemic, the period of “hard dismemberment” of the European Union may well begin, some of which were “thrown into arbitrariness of fate ”and naturally perceived it as“ betrayal ”. Lellouche is confident that the peoples “will require their governments to return to their national borders,” and this will call into question the very existence of such “traditional alliances as the EU and NATO.” According to the expert, the North Atlantic bloc “has long turned into a dummy”, which serves only to “calm the Poles and the inhabitants of the Baltic states”. The current crisis may well become fatal for him.

It should be noted that almost the main topic for the vast majority of European media today is the situation in Russia, which is perceived there as a kind of “inexplicable phenomenon” and almost an “anomaly”. Convinced of the falsity of the allegations of Russia's "weakness" and "lagging behind", the Old World is desperate to comprehend what is really happening there and why. By the way, all publications writing about this can be quite clearly divided into two categories: those that, using sources of information and comments of various representatives of the domestic “opposition”, voluntarily or involuntarily replicate the gossip and rumors they broadcast, and those that all -so are trying to independently understand the issue, covering it not biased, but objectively.

The first category includes, for example, the German Frankfurter Rundschau, which, having taken a quote from Ilya Yashin, reduces the talk about quarantine measures taken in Moscow to retell opposition “horror films” regarding “creating a system of total control over dissidents”. The British The Guardian, the Swiss Neue Zürcher Zeitung and the French L'Opinion tell a little more restrained and correct story about the situation in our country. Their materials are dominated by cautious doubts about “official statistics,” cited along with a forced recognition of the need for the Kremlin to take “tough measures” to prevent the spread of the disease, delaying which was a fatal mistake of the West. The Swiss television and radio company SRF stands out against the general background, in its material, it calls Sergei Sobyanin an "enlightened autocrat" who is able to maintain control of a huge metropolis even in the most difficult situation.

Naturally, European journalists write about the problems of their own countries. Moreover, more and more often they are raising for a long time the problems successfully hiding behind the blissful and varnished “facade” of the united Europe and ruthlessly exposed by the current crisis. Spanish correspondent El País writes about the extremely poor situation of low-income families in his country, while emphasizing that the most affected children are those who are deprived of the opportunity to receive at least some kind of education.

Well, the well-known Lithuanian portal Delfi.lt devotes its material to an even more unsightly phenomenon - mass thefts from local hospitals of such scarce things during a pandemic as face masks, respirators and antiseptics. In the same Kaunas Clinical Hospital, where today patients with COVID-19 are already, all other patients take it all away. Moreover, for some reason, the publication cites the opinion of one of the doctors that the disgrace that is taking place is “the consequences of the Soviet mentality”. Yes, such things, unlike viruses, are apparently incurable.

Well, representatives of one of the most cheerful European countries, France, would not be themselves, even in the present gloomy time without trying to joke. Journalists at the Paris monthly magazine Le Bonbon are ardently advocating the inclusion in the French Academy's dictionary of the pandemic neologism "covidiot", which originally meant exclusively alarmists - "the type of people who are ready to strangle themselves behind a roll of toilet paper." Now, according to the authors, it should be attributed to those who "have not yet realized the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic and proves this by their own simplicity of mind." This example shows how Europe’s attitude toward the pandemic has changed in a matter of weeks: even the jokes there have become serious and preventative.

              Why bother them? They come back naturally. Today, according to polls, more than 90% of Estonian high school students are not going to live in the country. Their life goal is Europe. There are no jobs in Estonia either - reservation of pensioners. That's when these pensioners die out - their children will come to the country, sell real estate and return to Europe forever!
              And to whom will they sell them? How many Russians in recent years have been buying real estate in the Baltic states to obtain a residence permit and Schengen?
              So the soft expansion is taking place ...

          Communists and Bolsheviks are to blame for carefully cultivating national separatism and introducing a federal structure of the state. These two factors laid the destructive charges that smashed the Soviet country to the nines in the nineties.

              The Bolsheviks were famous for the unprincipled methods of destroying the state from betrayal and cooperation with enemies to terrorism, national politics is a trifle.

              To attract new allies, the Bolsheviks proclaimed the right of ethnic self-determination as one of their main political principles.
              The USSR became an incubator of new nations. The more ethnic groups appeared, the easier it was for the Bolsheviks to manage them. For this, during the formation of the Soviet regime, the Soviet authorities quickly created artificial national borders, opened schools for the study of their native language, promoted local elites, published books and newspapers in national languages, and supported the development of the local intelligentsia - writers, poets, scientists, historians. Soviet linguists,, created alphabets in Latin and written language for more than 20 ethnic groups.

            You are our expert, nationalism and separatism develops along with capitalism. In Russia, this phenomenon began to develop in the 70s of the 19th century. And even during the years of the first Russian revolution, nationalists on the outskirts turned to their full potential without any Bolsheviks.

              In 1990, as a result of elections, nationalists came to power in all ethnic Soviet republics.

              Oh, who did this, who grew them for 70 years? Ah ah ah, aren't the capitalists really?

              The rise of nationalism at the end of the USSR is a consequence of cultural nationalism, the ethnic policy of the Bolsheviks. The development of national cultures during the Soviet period led to the emergence of a national intelligentsia, which became the driving force behind nationalist protests during the perestroika period.

      Why such a joy? All infectious departments in Russia are filled with patients with viral pneumonia. In which the diagnosis is not verified. The reliability of the test by PCR is not higher than 80%. Therefore, they are not in the statistics about COVID 19. And about the situation with personal protective equipment, you must generally keep silent. As about the number of ventilators. Our president, whose words the Russians no longer believe, is officially accused by the Saudi Foreign Minister of lying. We understand that the way it is. Therefore, the entire vertical from the very top to the last Kremlin boat is habitual and the swagger lies. To this lie, as a seasoning, a pinch of fermented, flaunting exposed patriotism has been added, and the brew for simpletons is ready. Dinner is served!

At our place, this ware was still at the end of that century, but then self-destructed. What would strengthen their de Bill consciousness? Some of their authors were placed in a 200-hundredth edition. Therefore, they are tired of vomiting. And there is nothing to be proud of.

    Darkly. Rather, divorce and maiden name. The fathers of the EU already had ideas for the division of countries of the 1st and 2nd grade, new and old members. There was not enough money at all.

      "The fathers of the EU already had ideas for dividing countries of the 1st and 2nd grade, new and old members. There was not enough money for everyone. Now they will not be at all. The East will leave and take away its market ..."

      Eastern European countries such as the Baltic states, Poles, Albania, etc. They will not go anywhere from NATO and the EU.
      In these countries, the "elites" are sifted, weighed, ranked, bought and lustrated.
      If they leave the EU, it’s only because they will be kicked out of there, and it will be difficult to do so. they will cling to the last.

      Even earlier, about a "two-speed" Europe, this idea was from strong countries, aimed at lowering status and souvenirs, increasing controllability and removing them from decision-making.

      It is not clear how in all this you saw progress towards the "withdrawal of the east" from the EU.

      The change is rather somewhat different to be expected.
      Previously, there was a priority of "European solidarity" consonant with "European security" and "a common policy of NATO and the EU."
      Those. when, in spite of the individual wishes of individual countries, they in the EU voted unanimously for this "solidarity".
      Now this concept of "European solidarity" has been thrown into the toilet.
      And say, the vote on the extension of sanctions against Russia will no longer be unanimous, but it is precisely unanimous to make a decision.
      To do this, it will be necessary to launch a new provocation such as MH17 or violins.
      Moreover, the "creaked" on the scale would not have rolled now, the shaves are no longer from the EU.

      those. now the management of the EU on the basis of "European solidarity" has been lost, and it is possible to try to restore it only by Mega provocation.

    Naturally, European journalists write about the problems of their own countries.

    Amazing.
    successfully hiding behind the blissful and varnished “facade” of a united Europe, the problems and ruthlessly exposed by the current crisis. Spanish correspondent El País writes about the extremely distressing situation of low-income families in his country, while emphasizing that children who are deprived of the opportunity to receive at least some kind of education are the most affected.

    These are socialists. They always just write that. Low-income Spaniards are usually understood as African illegal migrants.
    It should be noted that almost the main topic for the vast majority of European media today is the situation in Russia,

    What happens when a person studies a foreign press on InoSMI or something similar.
    The first category includes, for example, the German Frankfurter Rundschau, which, having taken a quote from Ilya Yashin, reduces the talk about quarantine measures taken in Moscow to retell opposition “horror films” regarding “creating a system of total control over dissidents”. The British The Guardian, the Swiss Neue Zürcher Zeitung and the French L'Opinion tell a little more restrained and correct story about the situation in our country. Their materials are dominated by cautious doubts about “official statistics,” cited along with a forced recognition of the need for the Kremlin to take “tough measures” to prevent the spread of the disease, delaying which was a fatal mistake of the West. The Swiss television and radio company SRF stands out against the general background, in its material, it calls Sergei Sobyanin an "enlightened autocrat" who is able to maintain control of a huge metropolis even in the most difficult situation.

    Since among the million things that the European press does not care about, Eastern European affairs occupy a prominent place, almost everything they write about Russia, whether it’s good or bad, is just nonsense.

    However, the Russian press is far from always different in this from the European one.

    this will call into question the very existence of such "traditional alliances as the EU and NATO." The North Atlantic bloc, according to experts, "has long turned into a dummy"


    Like most public speakers, Monsieur Leplush says about the virus that he always He speaks. He has been against NATO and the EU for a hundred years (this part of his position was lost in the transfer). So he again calls for rallying around the EU and stealing NATO, because the virus is the same. Where is the virus, where is NATO - do not care at all.

Having pulled on a mask and gloves, I ran off to the store today - see the prices (money has already been spent on meager supplies for self-isolation crying ) A pack of butter of 400 grams, Russian, used to cost 386 rubles, and now almost 800. One lemon - 70 rubles, and before the panic - two for 48 ...
        You somehow missed Mishustin’s statement that store checks are minimized, read - they are completely canceled. Given the self-isolation of regulatory bodies. The authorities conveniently avoided checking retail chains, and now they get what they say they did not get in 2019 and cried loudly about it on the pages of their publications and on the president’s waistcoat. And now - the coronavirus, a holiday that will be with them for a long time. People ate, people eat, people will eat!

In terms of real regulation, these figures are complete impotent. But to issue orders like "stay at home / feed yourself" and write out fines for violating quarantine (I wonder how unemployed citizens will pay for them) - that's all right. Everything that is not monetary does not exist in nature for this power. This is the lot of all sorts of "volunteers". Quarantine was supposed to be only in the centers of arrival of citizens from = abroad, and much earlier.

In addition, we add to the opinion of these experts, the error in objectivity, 30-40 percent, since the publication needs a sensation. Sensation - circulation - money. There are no fools and exceptional pragmatists in the EU, and any action depends on material expediency. In addition, in the EU I think with my head and not that place the concept of “fraternal peoples,” they lack even in the political vocabulary. Thus, everything will depend on political and economic feasibility and our own security.

Because I don’t think that any fundamental changes will occur in Europe (including for us) in the next decade after the epidemic.

        Europeans cannot tolerate a “dictatorial government” inside the EU, said Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn. In an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt, he said that the country with such a government, in his opinion, is Hungary, which should be sent to “political quarantine”.


        Claims against Hungary are related to the alleged “abuse” in the country due to the emergency regime introduced against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic. On March 30, the republic’s parliament approved a bill giving Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government extended authority over the state of emergency.

        According to the new law, Orban “will virtually single-handedly rule the country through decrees and decrees, and the government will be able to extend the state of emergency indefinitely without a vote in parliament,” writes Deutsche Welle.

        In addition, the law allows the cabinet to suspend the implementation of certain laws and apply “other exceptional measures” to combat COVID-19.

        According to the Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, in such a situation, “the Hungarian government can no longer be allowed to the table at which representatives of European institutions gather.” He demanded that representatives of Hungary be expelled from the Councils of Ministers of the countries members of the European Union.

        In turn, the European MP from the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, Dennis Radtke, demanded the exclusion of the FIDES - Hungarian Civil Union party, headed by Orban, from the European People's Party (EVP), the largest conservative faction in the European Parliament. According to Radtke, with regard to adherence to law and democracy, "you can’t give discounts to friends in the party."

        The President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, also criticized the Hungarian authorities. “No one is allowed to use the pandemic to trample on our freedoms,” the Italian politician said, adding that “the basic values ​​of the European Union” should be protected, and therefore “parliaments should remain open, and the press free.”

        According to DW, EC President Ursula von der Leyen "tried to avoid a direct confrontation with Hungary on the legality of special powers." On the eve of her statement, without mentioning Hungary, she pointed out the importance of proportionality to the emergency measures taken by the EU member states in connection with the pandemic.

    the Swiss television and radio company SRF, in its material calling Sergei Sobyanin an "enlightened autocrat," able to maintain control of a huge metropolis even in the most difficult situations.

    No, well, they need to flatter the Reindeer Breeder so much. Well, the sidekick of GDP, well, we do not like Muscovites and what, for this you have to lick? We have our zadoliz on TV and in the press in abundance.

    Japan, China, South Korea, India, Indonesia are countries with very little or no Covid-19 growth. The above does not seem to suggest any thoughts? And here the collapse of the EU and the Russian phenomenon? Rave. Russia has already overtaken Poland, which had previously been far ahead. The oil crisis is now so polished by the brains of cheers that a rare resource in Runet will offer in the future to analyze the situation in the world from the point of view of a layman who reads the Western tabloid press.

      Or maybe the oil crisis will push the Russian leadership to change the economic policy from export-raw to self-sufficient?

        Yes, let there be plenty of oil and let it remain for sale. We must live comfortably and have nothing to deny ourselves, because on dashing days that are coming, it’s easier to stay out with fat. But then you will find weaklings who, not in the case of firs, poured by strolling the entire backlog ahead of time.

    They argue about the law ...

    According to him, Russia live
    In their understanding,
    Eat quietly and drink quietly

    And the Poles and Bulgarians
    And the balts are different,

    There is no infection in Chukotka yet.
    It is isolated in itself, the only way for the virus to enter is through air passengers.
    However, instead of banning the passage of passenger flights for some time and thus radically preventing the infection of the population, the authorities, in the absence of those infected, banned the operation of shops, bathhouses, hairdressers, some enterprises, etc.
    Yes. And as a concern for the elderly, they were forbidden to leave the house.
    Those. pretended that measures are being taken.

    Threat. It should be borne in mind that in Russia the infection appeared due to the fact that it was first brought from outside to Moscow, and then from there it was started to be transported throughout the country.

    What is the phenomenon of Russia? Rich (so far) the most afflicted were rich countries with developed air services and the tourism industry. Those. equated Russia to African countries. We emphasized 2 points: rich Russians in Moscow - the largest percentage of cases among Muscovites and a miscalculation of the authorities that did not completely ban air traffic. On a 60-minute program, TV correspondent in Italy, Asya Emelianenko, tells Skobeeva that the Bergamo authorities are deploying Russian tourists arriving there at the peak of the pandemic, back.

      The problem is that the Russian government is positioning Russia as a European state. Russians who arrived from China were sent to 2-week quarantine. And they were quarantined in China before being sent and were considered healthy. The Russians who arrived from Europe were naturally not checked by anyone there. And they were allowed to isolate themselves. At the same time, no one tested the self-isolation mode and did not even do the tests. Anyway, they have families in most families, and if they were infected, then family members should have been very likely to become infected.
