Rahr: The geopolitical alignment in Europe is changing dramatically

In Western countries, no one wants to notice that the geopolitical alignment in Europe has begun to change dramatically, and not to the detriment of Russia. German political scientist Alexander Rahr announced this on November 18 on his Telegram channel, drawing attention to a number of factors.

The United States is now focusing on its main adversary, China. At the same time, the European Union is becoming an economic competitor for the United States and its importance as an ally is diminishing. At the same time, China is acquiring "strategic" footholds in Europe itself.

In addition, the EU has lost its monolithicity, as the UK is imposing "its" aggressive geopolitics, which runs counter to the interests of France and Germany. This is clearly seen in the example of the anti-Russian militancy of Poland and Ukraine. London is strengthening its position, while in Berlin anarchy after the parliamentary elections, and in Paris worries about the upcoming presidential elections.

Poland begins to break up the Paris-Berlin axis, joining the new alliance of the Anglo-Saxons. Warsaw is dragging other countries of Eastern Europe there

- he notes.

In turn, Russia is successfully holding back NATO expansion in the post-Soviet space. The Eurasian Union is growing stronger thanks to the Moscow-Minsk axis. Therefore, Kiev and Tbilisi will have to reconcile and accept a neutral status, like Finland.

The expert noted that Turkey has also started its geopolitical game. At the same time, Ankara quarrels more with the West than with Moscow. In his opinion, Angela Merkel's attempt to consolidate the EU with the help of "liberal values", and now "green economics"- failed. The COVID-19 pandemic has divided Europe. Moreover, the Polish "wall" against refugees on the border with Belarus changes the moral principles of European policy.

He is confident that now the EU countries will “rule” rather than “turn green”, i.e. nationalists will begin to come to power in them. Rahr believes that the main victim of these processes may be the EU, which has forgotten how to think strategically. In his words, the declared "struggle against dictators" is a desperate attempt to save the outgoing world order.

Let's see what a clear answer to these challenges will be given by the new German government, which does not lose hope of consolidating Europe.

- summed up Rar.

    So, the Germans feed the Poles from their hands, and they bite this hand. And it has always been that way. The Germans are again stepping on the Polish rake ...

    Now the Poles are on horseback. They defended the European Union. This means that the previous actions of Poland and its buckling were the right thing to do. Farewell to weak-willed Germany and France. Long live the strength and energy of uncompromising Poland.

    1. The value of the EU = NATO has grown as never before on the eve of the redistribution of spheres of influence between the US and the PRC, especially since the PRC is pushing the EU, including Britain, in their ancestral domains.
    2. Poland is vitally interested in the EU = NATO and is doing everything possible to strengthen its influence in the EU = NATO structures - otherwise it has no chance to resolve its issues with Lithuania, Ukraine and Belarus.
    3. The Russian Federation not only fails to restrain the EU = NATO aggression, but constantly backs away and thus encourages the EU-NATO aggression.
    Even the President of the Russian Federation noted this on copper, saying that NATO strategic bomb carriers already fly 20 km. from the borders of the Russian Federation.
    4. The Eurasian Union cannot become a significant and long-term political and economic force because this union is similar to Krylov's fable “The Swan, Cancer and the Pike” or “Martyshka's Glasses”, which are essentially the same thing.
    What can we say about the Eurasian Union, if even the union state of the Russian Federation and Belarus cannot fully integrate for two decades and move to a higher political and economic level.
    5. Moral principles are contraindicated in interstate relations, it is not for nothing that among the slaves there is an opinion that politics is a dirty business and confirmation of this is above the roof.
    6. The world order is determined not by the EU, but by the USA. The growth of the economic potential of the PRC leads to a decrease in the share of the United States in the world of GDP and reduces the level of income of TNCs and banks, causes an increase in the activity of previously obedient state institutions around the world, including the same Turkey and the EU.
    This is the root cause of all the processes taking place in the world today in politics, economics, law, ideology, morality and, of course, in military affairs.
    7. Paraphrasing Lenin, we can say that the turbulence that is taking place in the world today, caused by the growth of the PRC's economy, can become strong and massive enough to break or break the world domination of the United States, which will never, even in an era of crises, “fall” if they are not "dropped".

    Europe cannot even understand that it has lost its relevance to the rest of the world. The largest infrastructure projects are financed by China, and the construction sites are managed by Chinese engineers.
    The EU habitually builds something out of itself, but as interest disappears, this "construction" is costing it dearly.

    Mr. Rahr apparently significantly underestimates the situation:
    1. If a dog bites his feeding hand, he will be left without food.
    2. If the US satellites begin to harm Germany, they can stay outside the EU forever.
    3. The main threat today: Europe could freeze.
    4. The fact that the Americans are only concerned with the growth of China is a deep delusion: their main efforts in recent years have been to destroy the EU as the most dangerous economic competitor.
    5. Turkey is steadily moving away from NATO, and also runs into big troubles in relations with Russia, China and the Arab world, which is unlikely to like the plan of creating a Turkic state.

    National policies in EU countries are shrinking, and Brussels' sphere of influence is growing. There is no reason to rely on some independent programs of pan-European significance either from Paris or from Berlin, so there is no point in appealing to the capitals, and Brussels is completely dependent on Washington as a subsidiary of the American office. That is, European capitals are still coming out with initiatives, so who will give them to implement them if they do not follow the State Department's outline? No wonder he declared them to be true democracies, in contrast to those countries that are still relatively independent from America. For the whole world, Europe, Japan, Australia and a number of others have become a herd of one shepherd.
