DISINFO: European political elites are forced to stupidly obey Americans
It’s very bad that European countries do not understand where the USA’s thoughtless policy leads. Political elites in Europe either do not think about it or are influenced and patronised by American political elites to such extent that must just stupidly obey them. It is an American tradition to fight by someone else’s hands and on someone else’s territory, if only the USA would not suffer, therefore Europeans act as cannon fodder here.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about US presence in Europe, portraying Europe as a vassal of the USA. Russian disinformation sources like to claim that almost all European countries are no longer truly sovereign and the United States dictate EU and member states policies. The EU Member States are sovereign countries and make sovereign decisions about their own security and policies. Possible NATO/ US military presence and support in the EU Member States is possible only on the basis of the clear request/ consent of the hosting nation. The US is an important ally to the EU but EU policy is not determined by the US, as explained by the EU High Representative.
