How Turks Europeans beat

1 in April at the International Multimedia Press Center MIA “Russia Today” held a video link Moscow - Berlin on the topic: “The European Union in the face of new threats and challenges: illegal migration and terrorism. Ways to minimize. The topic is, as they say, topical, since the space bridge was held on the eve of the first expulsion of illegal immigrants by the European Union, scheduled for April 4.

1 April at 13: 00 at the International Multimedia Press Center MIA "Russia Today" The Moscow – Berlin video bridge was held on the topic of migration and new threats to the European Union.

The relevance of the event was justified by the upcoming date: on 4 of April, the European Union had planned the expulsion of illegal immigrants who entered Greece by sea from the coast of Turkey. At the same time, the reception of “legal refugees” from Turkey was “announced”.

The EU deal with Turkey cost Brussels 6 billion euros. In addition, Ankara has pulled out from the EU a promise to ease the visa regime and speed up the process of Turkey’s accession to the European Union.

Later, the opinions of experts who had highlighted the stated problems became known. Their leads RIA News".

According to the experts who participated in the Moscow-Berlin video link, organized by the “Russia Today” MIA, the EU agreement with Turkey is only a temporary solution to the problem.

Europe is experiencing the largest migration crisis: according to Frontex, only in 2015 did 1,8 million migrants arrive in the EU. On March 18, EU Heads of State agreed with Turkey on a plan to combat the migration crisis. The agreement assumes the return to Turkey of all illegal immigrants who arrived in Greece from Turkish territory, and the EU accepts legal Syrian migrants from Turkey on a one-to-one basis, RIA notes "News».

According to Nikolai Topornin, an associate professor at the Department of European Law at MGIMO (U) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the main problem for the EU is that national governments, and not EU structures, deal with migration issues.

The Dublin agreement from 1990 of the year establishes that the country where the migrant arrives for the first time will have to deal with migrants. And if 700 thousands of refugees cross the border of Greece, Greece should deal with them. “Obviously, even with all the desire, Greece, suppose it exists, is simply unable to accept these refugees,” said the expert.

And if so, the European Union should reconsider its approach to migration issues: “The European Union has a big task in revising these principles and standards of the Dublin agreement. The second point is that it is necessary to develop a unified European migration legislation. It seems to me that today it is necessary to re-develop immigration legislation that would meet today's realities. ”

According to Topornin, the agreement with Turkey does not solve the problem. At best, it can be considered as a temporary solution. The expert recalled that now there is information about the sharply increased flow of migrants from Libya towards Italy.

Gulistan Gürbe, a teacher at the Free University of Berlin, also noted that an agreement with Turkey can only be a temporary solution. In addition, she is pessimistic about harmonizing migration policy in the EU: “Within the EU, states always pursue their own migration policy and asylum policy. It will not be easy to achieve such harmonization, I think this will not happen in the coming years. I think these differences will only increase. ”

An expert from Germany, Andreas Wer, generally announced the possibility of the EU disintegrating. According to him, the differences in approaches to solving the migration crisis is a "trigger for the further disintegration of the EU."

“This mine was laid long ago under the EU in the migration issue. In any case, it is not defused. This deal with Turkey in no way neutralized it. ”

Despite the obvious questions (human rights in Turkey, Erdogan’s policy, Northern Cyprus and others), the agreement reached by the EU with Turkey is a civilized deal, the first step towards settling the migration problem, leads the opinion of the Deputy Director of the Institute of Europe, Russian Academy of Sciences Vladislav Belov "Reedus".

The EU makes it clear with this deal: the union is ready to accept refugees, but only legal ones. But with illegal immigrants will not stand on ceremony.

After the conclusion of an agreement between the EU and Turkey, the influx of migrants to Greece and Germany was significantly reduced, the newspaper notes.

4 April, add, the deal began to work.

According to the agreement of Ankara and Brussels in the morning of this day, the first ships with migrants began to leave the Greek islands of Lesbos and Chios in the direction of the Turkish port of Dikili in the province of Izmir, the TV channel "Euronews".

We are talking about illegal migrants who arrived not from combat zones, but from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Morocco "in search of a better life."

It clarifies the "Euronews", the operation takes place under intensive police supervision and control of NATO patrol ships.

On the banks of the illegal immigrants meet representatives of migration services, police, doctors, as well as numerous journalists, said RIA News".

It is also reported that, first, migrants will be accommodated in a tent camp in Dikili, then, after a medical examination and legal procedures, they will be sent to other provinces of the country.

Thus, Erdogan received from Europe everything he wanted: 6 billion euros, as well as promises to ease the visa regime and speed up the process of Turkey’s accession to the European Union.

On the other hand, to promise is not to marry.

        Yeah, as a result, refugees or terrorists do not allow them to accumulate in the neighboring countries of the European Union ... accumulate, accumulate ... what will happen next? They dig a grave for themselves, maybe equipment is being moved to Poland, Latvia, etc. only in order for terrorists to fight in Europe on two fronts? Although stupidity, of course, I’m afraid that there are no smart people left ...

      And where does Turkey have to do with it, the United States thus found a way to weaken its main economic competitor, the EU, otherwise they suddenly decided to show independence, and they don’t want to join the Transatlantic Union. How do you tell these guys to steer, and here the whole bunch and human rights and the economic downturn, and in the EU itself such a mess was muddied.

    I don’t understand how someone, even a Western European, can believe Turkish Erdogan. The most that can be expected of him is that he will deceive under a plausible pretext. I don’t think that Turkey’s goal in organizing immigrants (and not refugees) to Europe was to receive some 6 billion. Surprises are yet to come.

    EU deal with Turkey costs Brussels € 6 billion

    This is 6 billion so far, and then requests and Turkish appetite will only grow. Until the "naive" Europeans realize that they have been shod to the full, Turkey will shake their wallet. As a result, no money, no planned results.

    When solving any problem, it is important to identify and eliminate its cause, and not to overcome its consequences.
    Europe does not see this understood.
    And if he understands, then he cannot eliminate the cause.
    The reason for many European frustrations is not at all the actions of Russia, but the actions of the USA ...

    A little copy-paste from the Spaniards about emigrants. I don’t know if it’s true, but it sounds right.

    The world's main democratizers seem to have "discovered" a new way of waging war against both enemies and their powerful "friends" and "partners" in the EU and NATO.
    Several states were "democratised", and the impoverished and embittered people, and with them the "barmaley", were sent to their "friends" and "partners."
    Two birds with one stone.
    Turkey - Turkey is trying to get at least something on this, not realizing that it is the same "partner" and "friend" as the EU is for the United States. And the United States has no "friends" - there are only their insatiable interests!

    Today, Putin reassigned the internal affairs ministry’s migration service, recognizing the failure of businessmen to migrate. The same fate befell the people who monitor the labor successes of migrants - namely, drug fighters, for the same reason - the lack of results in cases. There are cases, but no results. All this happened after a recent meeting on migration issues, judging by today's reforms, we are doing very well. We raised a problem for ourselves. Now we will solve it, heroically straining the veins.
    Paying attention to today's decisions. 20-30 million migrants professing other cultural values, this is all the same for a large country like Russia - a lot.
    The heroism of some is the result of the stupidity and scam of others.
