After the Cold War epoch came to an end the EU got a real chance to gain the status - GeorgB - 02-20-2015 02:13 PM

After the Cold War epoch came to an end the EU got a real chance to gain the status of an independent international force pursuing its own agenda different from that of the American. I mean political, economic and military spheres.
Needless to say, that was a challenge to American dominance in the world and Yankees did everything to ruin this effort of the EU countries.
The first blow was the widening of the EU. Economically weak post-communist states became a burden too heavy for us. They've weakened the EU greatly!
Now, the second blow came. We are having Ukrainian crisis making it even worse for the EU. Washington encouraging radical nationalists in Ukraine actually provoked civil war in Ukraine and made the EU and Russia at odds over it. Those sanctions to punish Russia come too costly for the EU countries at present and despite the Minsk ceasefire agreement Washington seems to be reluctant to drop them!
What's next?
