EU no longer independent in politics even in Europe - Medvedev

MOSCOW:  The European Union has lost its geopolitical autonomy not only in the international arena but even in Europe, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said.

"Whatever European leaders might be saying, de facto the European Union cannot act independently not only in the international arena but even on the European soil. Practically all EU countries are standing upright before the United States and Great Britain and have begun to obediently fulfil their orders to support the Nazi regime in Kiev. And now they are fulfilling any orders whatsoever," he wrote on his VKontakte account.

According to Medvedev, dreams about the European Union as a pillar of the world order have vanished as the European Union "has lost its international authority of a mediator in any conflict.".

Europe’s energy cooperation with Russia has been frozen for a long time and now the European Union is living through difficult time, Medvedev said.

"Europe has gelded itself, bloodily and unanesthetized, having refused from energy cooperation with our country. It has been spoiled or frozen for a very long time. And America is rubbing its hands as it sells its LNG to Europe three times over the price," he wrote.

He noted that Europe’s largest economies, which used to be the European Union’s growth drivers for years, have demonstrated a dramatic slump and would recover very slowly, if ever. "And this is a bad outlook for weaker countries of Western Europe. Difficult times have come for a long time," he wrote.

He drew attention to the fact that the European Commission has downgraded the economic growth forecasts for the euro zone in 2023 from 1.1% to 0.8%. "Inflation in many EU countries is off the charts. Food prices are going up and will continue to do so," he noted.

Touching on other aspects of everyday life in Europe, he noted that no one can guarantee that the coming winter will be warm and mild. "And this means that tariffs for heat and all other things will go up. And American LNG, which is sold to Europe thrice the price, will be of little help. Europe has finally dropped the price policy which ensured Europe’s prosperity a couple of year ago. This time has gone. Let them console themselves with the thought that they are no longer dependent on energy from hated Russia," he added.
