Eastern Europe realized that it has become a front-line zone in the conflict between NATO and the Russian Federation


In the foreign policy ping-pong between Russia and NATO, Eastern Europe, which is "between two fires", loses most of all. The deterrent mechanism that functioned well during the Cold War era is increasingly failing in the context of the growing degradation of the international security system. The Bulgarian edition of the Duma writes about this.


In recent years, the main events in the confrontation between the Russian Federation and the North Atlantic Alliance are taking place precisely in the east of Europe - its western part is, as it were, in the rear. In a political context, this is very convenient, since the population of Eastern European countries lacks the so-called "military alarm" - there is only apathy and historical resentment towards Moscow.

Adding tension and the US withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty for Air Arms Control. According to the Bulgarian security analyst Simeon Nikolov, the countries of Europe, including Bulgaria, that have signed the treaty will suffer the most from Washington's demarche. Thus, the Eastern European countries realized that they had actually become a front-line zone in the conflict between NATO and the Russian Federation.

It is likely that this will be followed by non-extension of the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (START-3) - its validity period ends in February next year. Several European countries are calling on the White House to extend this agreement with the Kremlin.

Eastern Europe is also more threatened by the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty. The main losers from the rapidly deteriorating relations between Russia and the United States is Europe, deprived of a single voice, which does not want to be hostage to America's refusal to cooperate with other powers in order to ensure security in the world.

    Tens of millions of families in Poland and the Baltic states will be the first to burn alive in a nuclear fire. But before that, they will be able to scream and jump to their hearts content. Mentally ill countries that are struggling to bring the war with Russia closer to the world of tactical nuclear weapons. Or have they built hundreds of thousands of bunkers all over the country? Or, even simpler, for them the lives of their family members are much less expensive than the opportunity to curse and pour slop on a neighbor.

      Maybe it is worth reaching an agreement with the United States and not killing each other, which is so fiercely desires of every limitrophic rascal (not even really hiding their misanthropic wishes), but to kill all this insane rascal with nuclear missiles and live on together, dividing the planet in peace and tranquility?

        In the US, there is no one to negotiate with. If there were at least a little sane leadership with strategic thinking, they would have crushed Russia and its potential in the tenth year. But for the past 30 years, the US leadership has been insane, unable to see two steps ahead, frankly intellectually limited and just an ordinary 6. It is physically impossible to negotiate with them, these are people with a criminal mentality of sixes. If we need to divide the World, we will have to create a third party there, take 2/3 of the votes and completely replace the personnel on the ground.

    - And China now just squints and rejoices ... - Its "finest hour" has come, when the Europeans can grapple with each other and destroy each other ... - there are not so many of them left ...

    Damn, what's new for them. It used to be the same. Only then did their "front" go along the western borders, and now along the eastern ones. What is the point of the article, apart from populism?
