Europe, a necessary voice in Ukraine

It is hoped that from the meeting in Geneva of those in charge of US and Russian diplomacy, Anthony Blinken and Sergei Lavrov, no tangible results, agreement in principle or temperature drop in the operating theater. It can also be estimated that the role of European Union in crisis management continues to be lacking – not from France and especially Germany – and that European conglomerates adhere to a common strategy OTAN, dictated by the United States and supported by Britain in its long-term efforts to maintain a special relationship with the other side of the Atlantic. Inconceivably, on the contrary, the voices began to multiply, including the voice of Javier Solana, who call for the active role of the Twenty Seven to channel the crisis away from the battlefield.

Given the situation and the tendency to voice the White House and the Kremlin, the the EU’s tendency to behave like a soft power seems to provide added value efficiency. It is clear that Russia is not the least bit interested in Europeans meddling in its confrontation with the United States -judging by Moscow, the dispute is between the two superpowers and does not accept intermediaries-, but the fact is that most of the EU partners are at the same time members NATO, their security is closely tied to the decisions of the Atlantic Alliance and their interests are seriously compromised by what is happening on their eastern border. From which it is easy to conclude that a greater presence of European touch in the development of a conflicts affecting Europe and it will affect in one way or another the politics, economy and security of the continent. Most likely, in the end, whatever the outcome of the Ukraine crisis, the European vote will have less influence, but it is hoped that no one is facilitation to those who work so things have always been this way. It is therefore necessary that sooner rather than later, from the European Union, a viable, balanced and lasting alternative can be offered to defuse the Ukraine crisis.

From this approach to facts, United We Can’s reaction seems more opportunistic than sincere once it is known that Spain to send frigates and minesweepers to the Black Sea. NATO partners are not for the sake of inventory and reproach Irene Montero and his other training leaders, who have presented troop mobilization as opposed to achieving peace, have no logical basis: without a spring to ensure security and achieve peace, the idea itself is nothing more than a pipe dream. The umpteenth friction between the two universes of the ruling coalition is clearly unnecessary and can only be explained by the junior partner’s need, desire, or obligation to distinguish himself from the senior whenever the opportunity presents itself. You should never accuse the coalition government of violating the treaties and rules of the game. In accordance with the Constitution, Defense policy is the responsibility of the President of the Government, and the coronation agreement of PSOE and Podemos clearly associated with the Socialist political leadership of the Ministry of Defense and Foreign Affairs. In the face of this diplomatic crisis, it is important to remain united in the actions of the Union member states and, within them, the most influential political forces.
