Dialogue with Europe: Lavrov translated his threats into reality


The chief diplomat of the European Union, Josep Borrell, going to Moscow for conversation, wanted to establish a dialogue with Russia, but realized that the Kremlin was not ready for this in the year of the elections to the State Duma, writes the German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel.


Visit of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and policy security proved to be a failure. A united Europe found itself in a stupid position. Many Europeans, who had hoped the trip would be effective, took it as a personal insult and are now demanding Borrell's resignation. Worst of all, the EU turned out to be split and incapable of pursuing a single policy towards the Russian Federation.

Whatever the arguments in favor of the said visit, looking back, we have to soberly state that Russian President Vladimir Putin has caught the EU in a trap. He did not want the visit to be successful, he planned an insult, according to the media from Germany.

Putin has shown disdain for Europe. A person who wants a dialogue does not act this way. But it all depends on how seriously the opponent is taken. For example, the master of the Kremlin promptly agreed with Joe Biden on the extension of START III.

Every year, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov comes to Munich for a security conference and talks about the West's hypocrisy, denouncing its immorality. At the same time, Moscow is in reality not interested in ending conflicts, since then its services will not be needed. Therefore, the EU must learn to force respect for itself, sums up the publication from Germany.

Note that in October 2020, Lavrov spoke about Brussels, which does not understand the need for a mutually respectful dialogue with Moscow. Therefore, the Russians, most likely, will be forced to stop such communication. The Minister said this during his Performances at the event of the Valdai International Discussion Club. What happened in February 2021 indicates that Lavrov has made his threats a reality.

    What can you talk about with Brussels? Who is the EU? This is a structure similar to the CIS.
    There is the Chairman of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Commonwealth of Independent States, citizen Vladimir Vladimirovich MAKEY, just the level of Borel, so let them talk together.

    Lavrov as GOD! Lavrov said and there was a Word! And the threats came true. And he saw that it was good ...
    So it would be at work. But the Russians also have sayings. About "gop" and about "chickens in the fall".

        According to the results of VM2, the USSR suffered the greatest losses. You should remember this. The Germans then could not even guess that by dumping the dead into a pit, they could be buried without the possibility of later identifying or reburying them, and calling it the "Fraternal Grave".
        Whoever considers other people's dead instead of their own risks repeating past experience.

          It's like that after DETECTING the killed, our search engines are still collecting Soviet citizens who died in the Great Patriotic War ???? And most of it is IMPOSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY due to the lack of documents from the exterminated Nazis !!!!!!
          Or can you also justify the concentration camps?
          Have you lost your fear at all? You need to teach again, JUSTIFICATE OF NAZISM VOVA ???

      Volodya, do you essentially have something to say? Or did you come here to sneer? Or maybe they decided to cut down their own, Baltic, HYIP? They don't serve it like that.

    I, as I read another piece of news about how the major Lavrov embodied something there or outplayed someone - laughter makes me understand. Let it express concerns, encourage partners to engage in modal dialogue and inclusive action. He is not capable of more.

    These Europeans have a strange logic. They should look in the mirror and what would they see there, or rather who? And they would see there an American collective colony with which it is more expensive for themselves to negotiate, because they cannot agree among themselves. And they still seek the approval of the owner.

    EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy's trip turns out to be a failure

    Any failure has some real consequences, in this case for the EU - what are the negative consequences for the EU ???
    None !!!
    Everything has remained as it was, absolutely nothing has changed.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has caught the EU in a trap. He did not want the visit to be successful, he was planning an insult, according to the media from Germany

    What trap ??? Vladimir Putin realistically assesses the situation.
    Traps are set by a hunter, and whoever acts as a “hunter” is the one who initiates and erects all kinds of barriers in the economy, politics, media, culture, sports, and all other areas.
    Anyone who openly prepares not for war - for an attack, makes territorial claims, modernizes military bases and creates new ones, lays military bases around the Russian Federation along the entire perimeter of its borders, imitates nuclear strikes, arranges military provocations on land in the air and at sea, but any action To ensure its defense capability and independence, the RF perceives it as a threat.

    Putin showed disdain for Europe

    And he did the right thing, because the protectorate, by definition, cannot decide anything fundamental without the approval of the metropolis, and the metropolis openly declared to the whole world that it considers the Russian Federation enemy No. 1 and aims to “defragment” it.

    They are funny. Ending the conflicts of Russia in their understanding is the complete subordination of Russia to the wishes of the West.
