07:10 am – Troy’s pressure on Ukraine in the EU
(Gianluca Mercury) தி Leaders of Italy, France and Germany paid a historic visit to Kiev Done with A turning point: The commitment of the three leading countries of the European Union to integrate Ukraine into the community of the most independent and most prosperous states on this planet and to quickly recognize it as a candidate.
The most convincing way to re-emphasize it Europe vaguely parallel to the country attacked by RussiaFor its part it sends new signals not available for negotiation and further reduces gas supply.
Those who thought the march was useless and late should change their mind: Kiev trip by Mario Draghi, Emmanuel Macron and Olaf Scholes As will be remembered One of the most decisive political gestures ever made in the complex history of Europe. The three leading countries of the continent, the three major economies, and their leaders have officially stated that Ukraine should be with Ukraine.
⁇ Night twist on the train
Draghi wasAt the summit, which concluded at 2 a.m. yesterday in a motorcade departing from Poland, To deal with the last resistance of his fellow missionaries. With Macron, the Prime Minister moved forward. Says Marco Galluzzo, Already last week, at the closed door dinner at Elysée. Until the beginning of June, in fact, France was still firmly in the idea of a political community other than the European Union, with Ukraine being the candidate.
More suddenly Action taken by Germany: From skepticism a few weeks ago, from the silence that angered the Zelensky government, to the nearly 180-degree turn: the Chancellor not only promises missile systems, new generation weapons and Iris technology, but utters it in a sacred way. In support of Ukraine’s official candidacy will be “classified” in Brussels next week.
What changes in conflict management?
It takes (at least) a few days to answer this question. We need to understand, that is, whether the emotional legacy of the ruins of Kiev and the encounter with Zhelensky will change Three countries’ approach to war. In fact, France, Germany and Italy have so far represented the negotiating front, while Ukraine has not refused to open the beginning of negotiations with Russia without economic and military support.
What has moved Germany, France and Italy so far?
Scholz had to serve the German Ostpolitik for decades and its apparent degradation to the unsustainable satisfaction of the Russians: fears about the German economy and reluctance over the Ukrainian restructuring contributed to the image of a reluctant Germany.
Macron, for his part, was the leader of the conversation with Putin There have been repeated calls not to humiliate Russia Common to all three countries – it can not be defeated for sure, but he expressed the hope that the Ukrainians could bring the negotiations under the most favorable conditions possible. Therefore, they should be supported and armed to stay strong at the negotiating table, but they should not be disappointed that the final settlement of the scores can be achieved, and for their overall benefit (looks like British, Poland and Baltics. Trust me).
Yesterday the French president seems to have changed his accent: France has sided with Ukraine from day one, we are on the side of the Ukrainians vaguely want to win against Ukraine.
(Macron’s moves in this crisis are spoken by Stefano Montfeiory and political scientist Sofia Ventura on today’s Courier Daily Podcast, You can ask here)
As for Draghi, although he was more skeptical of Putin’s chances of moving, he gradually aligned himself with Macron. But the internal instability caused by Lega & Stell’s abdominal pain, the increasingly severe economic and energy crisis, and the wave of new African refugees unleashed by the Ukrainian wheat siege, prompts him to act quickly. The end of the conflict. It was not a coincidence that the Prime Minister made it clear to Biden. Face to face with the White House in May, the EU wants peace.
At the same time, Draghi always confirmed the support of a European Ukraine and yesterday He reiterated this: We must create a community of peace and rights that connects Kiev with Berlin, Rome and Paris, the Ukrainians are defending our own values of independence, the EU believes, for which we will support their candidacy for the next Council of Europe. . Europe must face the challenges with the same courage that Zhelensky showed.
