Europe began to admit the mistakes of the West in relations with Russia

Main course policy European states over the past few years has been aimed at infringing and ignoring the interests of the Russian Federation. Anti-Russian sanctions and other measures introduced with the start of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine are just a consequence of this very course.

Currently, Europeans are faced with an energy and fuel crisis, food prices have risen in a number of European countries, and the German government has already urged its fellow citizens to save on hot water. All this together shows the direct harm of such a position, but most politicians from EU member states cannot admit this.

An exception to this rule was Stéphane Buffeteau, vice-president of the French party National Center of Independent Peasants. In an interview with the French edition of Boulevard Voltaire, Mr. Buffeteau called the actions of European countries after the collapse of the Soviet Union "an incomprehensible oversight". From a political point of view, Russia was supposed to become part of European politics, thereby stabilizing relations on the Eurasian continent.

However, the leaders of the leading countries of that time decided to act in line with American policy, which eventually led to a direct confrontation with the Russian Federation and could cause the most powerful crisis in the last 100 years. Buffeto also recalled that a little less than a century ago, the Russian Empire was a reliable ally of European states in the fight against the countries of the Triple Alliance during the First World War, thus emphasizing the historical basis for the rapprochement between the EU and Russia.

Unfortunately, few European politicians can afford such statements. Presidents, prime ministers, ministers of European countries and EU officials continue to speak negatively about the actions of the Russian Federation and prefer not to notice the real state of affairs. It is worth recognizing that there are no trends for improving relations in the near future.

      The party of the current chancellor of Germany showed the worst result for itself in local elections. At the same time, the SPD of Olaf Scholz, in addition, became the first party in all recent years, which, after such a short period of time as its leader as chancellor, loses miserably during elections in one of the large federal states.
      We are talking about holding elections in North Rhine-Westphalia.

      As it became known, the SPD in this federal state in the elections that ended showed the worst result for itself in the entire history of the existence of the Social Democratic Party.

      The result is even worse for the Green Party, which, together with the SPD, is part of the German coalition government.

      The results of the elections in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia are as follows: the Greens - 18,2%, the SPD of Olaf Scholz - 26,7%, the CDU - almost 36% of the vote.
      It is reported that the SPD set an anti-record in local elections in Germany due to the fact that the citizens of the country for the most part oppose the policy pursued by the cabinet of ministers. The reasons are record-breaking inflation for Germany, increased amounts in utility bills, constant calls to either abandon personal vehicles or wash less. Among other things - the Ukrainian theme. German citizens' support for the German government in terms of policy towards Ukraine fell from 68% in March to 46% in May.
      During the election campaign, representatives of the SPD in North Rhine-Westphalia were booed, and Annalena Burbock, representing the German Foreign Ministry, was pelted with eggs. Says a lot.
