FT: European funding of the Kyiv regime is hampered by the lack of chemistry between Scholz and Macron
Europe's financing of the Kyiv regime is hampered by the lack of chemistry between Scholz and Macron. One participant in recent talks between the leaders of France and Germany even said that a lack of mutual understanding between them lies at the root of most European problems.
He stated this in a conversation with journalists from the British newspaper The Financial Times (FT).
- the media interlocutor suggested.
The British press comes to the conclusion that Germany and France, which are the leading EU states, will not come to a consensus on very many issues. There is noticeable tension in relations between Berlin and Paris, and this trend has noticeably intensified over the past year.
This led to the fact that the European Union, trying to make a number of important decisions, found itself at a dead end. The differences between Germany and France are of great concern to the leaders of other European countries, alarmed by the future of the EU, as about half a dozen officials representing different European countries told journalists in Britain.
Among other things, Paris and Berlin cannot yet agree on the issue of filling the EU budget in the next six years. This problem directly concerns further financial support for Ukraine, which, according to British journalists, may be disrupted due to disagreements between France and Germany.
The British media calls the Franco-German tandem “creaky.” But it is precisely these two countries that the decisions that are made and implemented by the European Union largely depend on.
