Speculations on the “Russian threat” and nationalism in Eastern Europe have a completely rational economic background and are driven by wild fear of being left without subsidies from Brussels, Ридус opinion of political scientist Alexander Zapolskis.
“It is the case that the economic End of the World in the Baltic States will come in the 2020 year, and most likely - a year earlier. However, he will cover Poland too, ”the author is convinced.
According to him, “the creators of the European Union, represented by the major European powers, proclaimed the good goal of universal prosperity, providing markets for their industrial goods even in those countries where these products were clearly not affordable for the population”.
“Brussels actually spilled the former countries of the socialist camp and the poor outskirts of capitalist Europe, like Greece and Portugal, a real golden rain. This was called the “structural alignment program,” but its main goal — faster GDP growth in new EU member states — has not been achieved in recent years, ”writes Zapolskis.
“The EU structural funds are compensated from 75 to 90% of the cost of regional projects for Greece, Ireland, Portugal and ten new EU countries, including Poland and the Baltic States. While for Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, the amount of compensation does not exceed 25%, and Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Austria receive nothing at all, they are pure financial donors, ”he points out.
The political analyst calculated that “if the nightmare of Warsaw, Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius becomes reality, and the European subsidies run out, all of them will receive state budget deficits in at least 20 − 25% of the budget”.
“One morning, polite green men appear, a referendum and ... the three pillars of the North Atlantic Alliance together are asking for membership in the Russian Federation. The nightmare and horror of the entire system of European security! In no time, Russian troops find themselves on the border with Poland. The Russians are close! Their special forces are already roaming the forests of Estonia. Their reconnaissance troops on the Curonian Spit walk almost like at home. Dula them tanks stick out because of each frontier bush. Fearfully? Then give me the money! ”, - describes the tactics of the Eastern European countries Zapolskis.
