The European countries are aware of the facts that the new Kiev government is filled to the brim with various radical and Nazi elements, it furthermore funds Nazis, as it even introduced a pension reform for veterans from the Nazi-infested elements. Furthermore, it supports radical and Nazi-like ideologies, such as the Ukrainian hero Stepan Bandera and his ideology, various Nazi elements soldiers’ uniforms and so forth. This, in turn, means that more than likely Europe understands that the Kiev government employs various methods of oppression, such as illegal detachments, censorship, political “witch hunts” and more, simply to remain in power.
The EU would be interested in implementing the nuclear agreement with Iran for its own economic interests, but that would mean confronting the US. So the EU is going to do what Washington says because it is an occupational government in Europe on behalf of the US.
This is part of a recurrent Russian narrative to portray the European Union as a vassal of the US. The European Union is a sovereign entity, created by the voluntary initiative of European nations, and it has its own, independent foreign policy. Its citizens are directly represented in the European Parliament and Member States are represented in the European Council and the Council of the EU. The United States of America is not part of these institutions. The US had no role in the creation of the EU and has no say in its decisions.
You can see other examples of disinformation on this topic, such as allegations that the EU is dependent on US foreign policy and it is imposing sanctions on Russia only due to Washington’s pressure, that the US considers the EU a kind of protectorate and US troops in Europe are an occupying army which needs NATO to keep the Europeans under control, that the EU is trying to escape from US control and occupation, and that this is the reason why it needs its own army.
