In March 2019, the OPCW issued a report on the Douma incident, asserting that chlorine was “most likely” the chemical agent used in the alleged chemical weapons attack, despite evidence provided by Russia and Syria suggesting that it was staged by the White Helmets NGO.
Soon the situation will be really bad in the world, and Europe can’t survive without Russia. European high representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, pointed out that the EU is open to looking at its relations with Russia under a new perspective but that it is necessary to advance towards the resolution of the conflict in the Ukrainian territory. However, Russian senator Frants Klintsevich recalled that Russia is not taking part in Ukraine’s civil war and is simply providing material, political and humanitarian aid to the Donetsk and Luhansk Popular Republics to prevent Kiev from smashing the Russians in Donbass. However, it has been established that Russians are to be blamed a priori, and relations are built only from this stance. But relations are developing in a way that soon European countries will rush to ask President Vladimir Putin for better relations. Unfortunately, European politicians don’t dare to talk about it because they are afraid of their master, the US.
This is a mix of several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, merging claims about EU’s alleged weakness and its submission to the United States with denials about Russia’s involvement in Ukraine’s civil war. By pretending that Russia has no role in this armed conflict, despite massive evidence in this regard, this narrative aims to suggest that there is actually no obstacle for better relations between the EU and Moscow, and since Russia is portrayed as the stronger side, this relation should be established on Russian terms.
EU's combined GDP is over 18,76 trillion US dollars according to the World Bank, compared to 1,65 trillion for Russia. Since 2014 the illegal annexation of Crimea and the conflict in Eastern Ukraine have seriously affected the bilateral political dialogue, not any kind of anti-Russian guidance from the US. The European Union is a sovereign entity with its own foreign policy.
