Global Times called the EU a victim of NATO provocations against Russia

The only beneficiaries of the ongoing international crisis in Ukraine are the United States. All other participants in the conflict, as well as those countries that are directly or indirectly involved, whom it concerns, whom it affects, experience only a negative impact. Washington is setting up its European partners very strongly, provoking them through NATO to a confrontation with Russia. In this sense, for the White House, the European Union is a real victim, not an ally. Xue Liu, a columnist for the Chinese edition of the Global Times, writes about this.

As the expert notes, Europe suffers greatly because of the need to imitate the United States in their attitude towards Russia. The approaches of the allies differ: for the EU, Russia is a neighbor that cannot be abandoned, and any separation is fraught with consequences, pain, and negativity. Not so for Washington. “Leaving” the Russian Federation for America will not cost anything, unlike the EU.

Along with Russia and Ukraine, Europe also suffers greatly from the military crisis caused by Washington. The worst thing is that политическая и economic the instability of the Old World is also included in the plans of the United States, like any negative for Russia.

The danger of the situation lies in the fact that Washington simply does not have the experience of conducting a diplomatic and sanctions confrontation with another superpower. The Cold War experience does not count. At the same time, now we are talking about almost the direct involvement of the United States in an armed conflict, which raises the question of uncontrollable processes and unpredictable consequences. According to the Chinese journalist, "the prestige" of America "suffers" and the leadership of this state goes for broke, starting a dangerous game.

An attempt to hit both Russia and China at the same time will lead to retaliatory actions. Neighbors will be able to defend themselves, but Washington does not guarantee the protection of Europe, which will act as its tool

predicts a Chinese observer.

Summing up, Liu calls for severing the pernicious ties between Europe and the US, since it is economically beneficial for the EU to be friends with Russia and China. These relations will cover all the “hardships” if Europe suddenly decides to refuse to turn overseas.

    In general, in the long run, the US competitor is the EU, at least in its "old" part, and not China.
    The EU also has technologies comparable to the States and a hard currency.

    China, with all due respect, has neither.

    So in general, in the "European" theater of the United States, everything is performed, if not perfectly, then close to it.

      The fact that the States are planning to ruin Europe is understandable.
      But I would question the thesis that the EU has technologies and hard currency.

      Technology is copied. The limitation is patent law and intellectual property. But China has long spit on these restrictions. Since March 2022, Russia has also stopped paying attention to this. But patent restrictions are one of the pillars of the Western economy. So with technology, China is doing quite well.

      As for the currency, I would also argue. The euro has lost 20% in six months. And no one guarantees its stability. With the collapse of European industry, the euro can be forgotten. Settlements in yuan are gaining momentum.

      At the moment (approximate figures) the share of the euro in world trade is 35%, the share of the yuan is 3-4%. But the trend is such that the share of the euro is declining, and for the yuan, experts predict an increase of up to 15%. Predictions do not always come true. But tendencies don't usually lie. We all see that trade in yuan is growing.

    As for patents, it's simple. No one needs a patent for nails, they were invented by the ancient Egyptians and have been producing them for more than one thousand years. But patents for a turbine blade, a cryogenic pump, etc. without technology NOTHING! Technology must either be bought or stolen - the Americans, the Japanese, the Chinese, in general, the whole world are doing this. Developing technology from scratch is a very long and very expensive process. For example, the RD-180 engines, the Americans received drawings in 1998, BUT NOT technologies, they still cannot at least copy.
    And at the expense of the EU - it is easier for the Americans to deal with them, this is not China, extra competitors are not needed.

      Perhaps you are right.
      Is there anything that the Chinese cannot produce? From nails to rocket engines. In what area do they not have technologies similar to European ones?
