NATO has completely exhausted its reasons to exist. Today, it is some kind of a structure, which realises the commercial interests of the American military-industrial complex. In the situation caused by the pandemic, it is possible that the Americans may lose their interest and faith in the maintenance of this organisation. Particularly, if NATO member states will revise their budgets reducing their expenses for defence.
The Russian aid to Italy was perceived in quite a strange way by some European media – French President Emmanuel Macron had also shown concerns about it. This situation shows that the EU continues to keep the concept of the Russian enemy alive. A similar concept of the “Chinese enemy” appeared in the USA as there were attempts to call the Coronavirus a “Chinese virus”. It is pure racism – unfortunately, there will be no quick reconciliation.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign around the Coronavirus epidemic and the alleged Russophobic policies of the European Union. It promotes the idea that in the situation of the Coronavirus pandemic, the West should forget about all existing political disagreements with Russia.
Evidence is emerging that there are significant shortcomings with the aid sent by Russia, with one report estimating that up to 80% of this aid is ineffective. The Russian aid delivered to Italy is mainly composed of various equipment for disinfecting the streets. This type of equipment is not urgently required in Italy and has been described as a Russian “geopolitical and diplomatic charm offensive”.
