"Putin's trap": the European Union is unable to refuse cooperation with Moscow


Despite the fact that the suspended sentence of the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has turned into a real one, Europe is hesitating to impose sanctions on Russia. According to David McAllister, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the European Parliament, the heads of the European foreign affairs agencies will show unanimity in imposing new sanctions on Russia.


New sanctions measures may relate to blocking the accounts of individuals and restricting them from entering the EU countries. Due to the effectiveness of these provisions, there is no unity between the EU members - for example, the representatives of the Baltic states, Poland and Sweden are in favor of the most stringent economic sanctions, and Germany, Italy, France and Cyprus "hit the brakes." One of the participants in the Brussels talks notes with regret that the Europeans are not ready to go beyond personal sanctions.

The European Union fell into Putin's trap

- notes Die Welt, saying that the EU is not in a position to refuse cooperation with Russia.

In particular, the West needs Moscow to resolve important issues related to Syria and Libya. In addition, Russia's Permanent Representative to the European Union, Vladimir Chizhov, points to the unused potential in cooperation between the Russian Federation and the EU. In his opinion, relations between the Kremlin and a united Europe will flourish again if the Europeans find the resolve to abandon their own imaginary uniqueness and return to reasonable mutually beneficial cooperation.

    If you don't come to an understanding with Poland, it will be difficult to get closer to the EU.

    Germany already imports more from us than from France and Italy. We are even the fourth largest country in the world from which Germany imports the largest volume after China, the US and the Netherlands, and therefore the second largest in Europe.

        https://trendeconomy.ru/data/h2/Poland/TOTAL

        Looked at the link. Interesting.
        Just didn't understand, is this a joke about nuclear reactors?)

        Imports structure to Poland in 2019 represented by the following main commodity groups:

        12,4% (30 billion US $): 84 - Nuclear reactors

        It turns out that the Poles buy nuclear reactors for $ 30 billion, and then resell them for $ 34 billion?

        Well, everything else follows the same scheme: buy - sell. Economy!

          It looks like Ukrainian economists have dug in on the site. For the sake of interest, look at Iceland, they also export nuclear reactors. belay When I first saw it, I was also at a loss. yes I did not understand what they mean. But Russia in the export structure has 39% oil, some more coal, for some reason hemp, wax and galoshes were not indicated laughing What kind of reactors are there? fellow

          It looks like Ukrainian schemes for buying American and South African coal.
          The coal itself is naturally from the Donbass, but according to the papers it is South African.

          This is how "nuclear reactor exporters" are born ..

          Plus the resale of other people's goods like Belarus with its shrimp, lobster and parmesan.
          This is not economics ..

      There is another option. Is it the first time to divide Poland?

      Germany already imports more from us than from France and Italy. We are even the fourth largest country in the world from which Germany imports the largest volume after China, the US and the Netherlands, and therefore the second largest in Europe.

      Sound the amount and compare with the amount of the subsidy. You will probably be surprised, but they do not come to you from Lithuania.

        Ha ha ha. Now the true experts will explain to you that the divided Poland will also have to be "fed", but here we ourselves are barely holding on, and "not our brothers". And with whom to share that? With Ukrainians chtol? So they themselves can declare "blitzkrieg" and immediately surrender, and it will be worse than "a cruiser as a gift."
        And as for "nuclear reactors", these are the costs of translation, probably, I wonder if they resell four or eight cores, new or used, and most importantly whose?

          The Ukrainians will probably start dividing themselves soon. Let's share with the Germans. We will lease our part to them, let them feed them, they are used to it. Except for the part of East Prussia that they were given in 1945. They do not deserve such gifts, they did not live up to trust.

          And as for "nuclear reactors", these are the costs of translation, probably, I wonder if they resell four or eight cores, new or used, and most importantly whose?

          I doubt that these are translation difficulties. If we were talking about processors, what do boilers and mechanical devices have to do with it? It sounds like this:

          Nuclear reactors, boilers, machinery and mechanical appliances, parts thereof

          There is, of course, a version .. just in the form, the position is named. They either sold some kind of mechanism, it fits into this column, in fact, not any reactors. But the graph is rather strange. In the EU, only the French can theoretically do this, but as far as I remember over the past 30 years, only 2 reactors are under construction, and they seem to have not finished yet.

    At the moment, Germany does not even think about aggression against another country. They have an injury after the Second World War. In addition, the majority have very left-wing views, LGBT and others ...
    So far, you just wanted to attack your neighbors. You are left alone, the Germans will not help you. Who will supply them with spare parts for cars and other equipment? We manufacture most of our products in Poland and send them to their factories. There will be no Poland, there will be no Germany.

      Those who want to earn money, Mexicans, Ukrainians or the same notorious Chinese, are of course politically difficult with the Turks, but they also have a suitable base. yes

      There will be no Poland, there will be no Germany.

      So that's who's boss. laughing
      One might just as well say that there will be no Germany - there will be no Poland.
      Much is based on good neighborly relations, but Mexican spare parts can also suddenly become more profitable and / or high-quality, and Ukrainian seasonal workers, more efficient and unpretentious. Do not take everything for granted, the world is changeable.
      Something like this. yes

      What aggression? The section will be peaceful. Poles are no strangers to humbly gazing at foreign soldiers marching through their former land. The Germans can take the carriers of "very left-wing views, LGBT and others" for themselves. We won't mind.

      So far, you just wanted to attack your neighbors. You are left alone, the Germans will not help you.

      And when did we need the help of the Germans?

      Who will supply them with spare parts for cars and other equipment? We manufacture most of our products in Poland and send them to their factories.

      You will be, everything will remain the same, only these volumes will not be listed in the export and foreign trade column.

      There will be no Poland, there will be no Germany.

      Really? sad Oh, this legendary modesty of Polish lords laughing I'm afraid you will have to compete with Ukraine for the title of "The center of the earth". Your Brzezinski was broadcasting something, they say we are nobody without them ...

      Wow! They have an injury! Half of the world helped them to recover, although it was Germany who had to rebuild everything and still crawl on her knees for her "injury"!

    In principle, it is not that important. The EU is not a tenant anyway.
