“The US is testing the ability of the new leadership of the European Commission and the European Council to maintain an anti-Russian strategy of behavior and support American policy against China and Iran. Washington leaves no hope to keep the collapse of a unipolar model of the world’s structure. ” So commented on a member of the State Duma committee on international affairs, Sergei Zheleznyak, the State Department’s call for European partners to confront the “threats” from Russia, China and Iran.
“The United States is not in vain concerned about further relations with Europe in the context of the American opposition to the development of cooperation between European countries and Russia, as well as the lack of interest among European partners in opposing China. Recently, the mainstream in European politics is changing the vector to a more loyal to our country. Sensible and responsible European leaders see real damage from Washington’s imposed anti-Russian sanctions, are disappointed in Euro-Atlantic integration and understand that Europe itself, not the United States, must deal with security in Europe.
European countries are also looking more closely at cooperation with rapidly developing China. As for Iran, the United States is shaking the situation around the nuclear deal, making Europe a hostage to its Middle East ambitions and pushing European partners to fulfill collective obligations alone, ”the politician said.
According to the parliamentarian: “The inertia of European officials supported in Washington, even with a visible change of names in the leadership of the EC and the EU, is unlikely in the near future to radically change the course towards a complete rejection of the influence of the Washington party committee. At the same time, trends towards independence and the strengthening of European sovereignty will only increase. The United States is unlikely to be able to maintain a degree of anti-Russian hysteria in Europe for the foreseeable future, where pragmatism and common sense should become increasingly important factors in decision-making. ”
