Political scientist Rahr: Scholz should authorize the dissolution of NATO and revive the idea of ​​a Greater Europe from Lisbon to Vladivostok

New German chancellor Olaf Scholz does not share the desire of the UK and the US to support the Ukrainians in their fight against "Russian aggression" - on the contrary, he tries to calm the situation through high-level meetings with the leaders of the United States, France and Russia. At the same time, Berlin must go further and seek to correct the existing security system on the European continent.

According to the German political scientist Alexander Rahr, London and Washington do not want to allow a single European space "from Lisbon to Vladivostok" and through their media put pressure on Berlin's position. Therefore, Scholz is forced to follow this line of conduct and threaten Russia with sanctions, supporting the Kiev regime.

At the same time, the German chancellor cannot go against the world's liberal elites, otherwise he will lose power. However, Scholz must take into account the mood of Europeans who do not want to fight and shed blood for the interests of Ukraine. In this regard, Germany is very likely to maintain its veto against Ukraine's accession to NATO.

But, as Rahr believes, Olaf Scholz should go further and distance himself from the influence of the “Anglo-Saxon countries”, showing himself as a true and independent European. The chancellor needs to insist on the revival of the idea of ​​a Greater Europe and authorize the dissolution of the Western military bloc.

It is necessary to dissolve unnecessary NATO and resurrect the OSCE, which is a true pan-European security architecture

    If the Germans allow themselves to be deceived by the Anglo-Saxons one more time, as in WW 1 and 2, they will be like those Indians who themselves are to blame for being deceived by the pale-faced.
    England left the EU for this, in order to pull the same trick again - set the EU against the Russian Federation, and at the last moment join the winner and demand indemnity from the loser. In both WW1 and WW2, the Anglo-Saxons milked the Germans well. If the Germans are stupid enough to contribute to this, then history teaches them nothing.

    Alexander Rar:

    ... a single European space "from Lisbon to Vladivostok" ...

    This project is already dead and cannot be revived.
    A too specific civil society has been built in the EU, with its own rules of "Western democracy and liberalism", extreme intolerance and aggressive imposition of its "values" towards other countries.

    All sorts of OSCE, Council of Europe, etc. have remained from the old project. how they "work" in one direction is known.

    Peaceful coexistence and trade is good. It is not necessary to build a common space with Brussels.

    1. Anglo-Saxons = Germans, we remember this and don't fool us again.
    2. You never know what Rar says = Germany is a colony of n-owls at the moment and this is a fact.
    3. From Vladivostok to Lisbon there will be Russia, and forget your Wishlist of the past, gay Europeans.

    Whom to insist on? Where and how to sanction? Economic, cultural, military-technical ties, all in the furnace? Something reminds.
    Mr. Rab is trying to initiate perestroika in the Yeltsin-Gorbachev format in Europe? Freak.

    instead, Scholz nods his head like a schoolboy when he meets Biden when Biden rants about "containing Russia's aggressive plans." Germany also confirmed through the mouth of the Foreign Ministry that it would fit right in with the sanctions if there was "aggression" against Ukraine. That is, it supported the narrative that the threat comes from Russia. Not a word about Minsk 2. Well, let's see what Scholz's visit to Moscow will show, as well as the Normandy format.
    If someone follows the Russian state media (RiA, Russia 24, etc.), then you may have noticed that for the last 2 months two news have been slipping there almost daily - 1. gas futures quotes and 2. has Russia booked or not booked Polish or Ukrainian pipeline. And if someone followed these two news closely, they could notice the relationship. Russia lets gas through Ukraine like yesterday, today prices fall to $917. Russia does not book Poland and Ukraine, prices rise to 1000+. Russia has already been doing this trick for a month or even more, demonstrating clearly who the price of gas in Europe depends on. In fact, Europe is already living under Russian sanctions, which are quite significant by the way. How much these sanctions have affected every European is easy to calculate - electricity prices are constantly growing in Europe, the overall burden on citizens and industry is significant.
    As long as the Europeans threaten Russia with sanctions, Russia simply does not remove them from them. And how all this is reflected in Ukraine is better not to even find out, they buy gas in Hungary for $ 1150. Scholz and Macron do not speak publicly enough about the need to implement the Minsk agreements. They have to repeat this every time they see a journalist, no matter what topic they have a question on and whether there is a question at all ...
