The EU is worse than USSR. The evidence is that everybody who is against ruinous policy of the EU is labelled as Putin’s agent; and any different opinion is being criminalized.
The EU is merely a vassal of the US political and economic interests. High officials in Brussels do everything to disintegrate the EU. It is part of the US goal to weaken and dominate Europe.
EU determines the development if the EU, not the USA. The USA support European integration.
