When asked by a journalist about the assessment of the EU policy towards Belarus, the rapporteur on Belarus in the European Parliament, the representative of Lithuania Petras Auštrevičius answered shortly: “This is a failure”.
This, unfortunately, is nothing new. Foreign policy failures, especially in relation to dictatorships, are a sad rule in the EU practice. This is happening largely due to the vicious beginnings laid down by the founders of the EU, from the imperial Winston Churchill to the Marxist Altierro Spinelli. The division of the EU member states into first-class "old Europe" and second-class "new Europe" is a manifestation of imperial yearning, whereas gravitation towards dictatorial regimes, openly favoring them, is a manifestation of the Marxist content of this stillborn formation.
The open reluctance of Germany, France and Italy to include the state terrorist of the Nazi type Alexander Lukashenko in the EU sanctions list is a consequence of an ugly combination of both the imperial and Marxist contents of the very foundations of the European Union. Surprising and outrageous calls for a "dialogue" with the authoritarian regime in Belarus, which is carrying out the increasing Nazi-style terror against Belarusians, are, in fact, the manifestation of support of that anti-human dictatorship by vaunted “European democracies”.
The explanation of this "high politics" by the desire to maintain control over Belarus, regardless of who is in power in that country, only confirms the imperial and Marxist essence of this union based on the domination of two countries - Germany and France, leaving limited sovereignty for the Central European and Baltic states.
Therefore, it is also quite logical for the European Union to support another dictatorial regime – the regime of Vladimir Putin in Russia. The presence of numerous agents as well as “useful idiots” in the Council of Europe, which Russia maintains, has caused many similar failures in the EU foreign policy. At the same time, quite often the interests of the EU and the North Atlantic Alliance not only diverge, but come into direct conflict. Therefore, the tough policy of the current US administration towards those NATO member-states that belong to the "old Europe" can be seen as absolutely justified.
The change in German Chancellor Merkel's rhetoric toward Russia after the poisoning of Alexey Navalny with the Novichok nerve agent which is a chemical weapon, is a result of pressure from Britain, the United States and Canada, the victorious countries of World War II. It is not of common knowledge that since 1945, all German governments have been, in fact, nothing more but effective occupation administrations. Also, not everyone knows that each German Chancellor, after being elected, has to sign a pledge of loyalty to the victorious nations in WWII. That commitment has been held in the deepest secrecy being the strongest lever of pressure on all post-war German governments.
Today, a similar precedent has arisen, since there are certain reasons to believe that the Putin regime is planning to unleash an external war in order to save itself in the face of the most difficult socio-political and economic situation inside Russia. To this end, the Kremlin, until recently, considered the possibility of using its "twin" - the terrorist regime of Lukashenka in Belarus.
The 1,400 kilometers long border between Belarus' and NATO member-states by itself should prompt the Alliance to take decisive action. Alas, that can not be said about the European Union, the logical failures of which are inherent in the very foundations of its formation.
