Europe is not united. Relations between Russia and EU, between European countries are difficult. The reason is the presence of US. Everywhere.
EU doesn’t carry out its obligations within international agreements. For example in Ukraine, EU doesn’t keep pressure on Ukraine to follow the Minsk agreements, EU closes its eyes on situation in Donbas. EU recognised Guaido immediately in Venezuela. The case with Iran was Europe’s disgrace. And all is because of pressure from USA. It is true that Europe is tired of US dictates. EU wants to cooperate with Russia, Iran, and China. But the USA don’t allow it.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the United States dictating EU and member state policies. Europe is not occupied by the US. Sovereignty of the EU member states is not limited. Similar examples can be found here, here and here.This is a classical pro-Kremlin narrative, trying to undermine sovereignty of the West. Member states of the EU are independent and sovereign countries.
