The number of people who support Ukraine’s accession to NATO is falling. The number of people who are against NATO and who support the union with Russia, together, is bigger than the number of NATO supporters. This has not been happening for a long time.
The EU is trying to break out of Washington’s control. More and more American military formations are being deployed on the EU’s territory, under the pretext of protecting from Russia. The occupation takes place without war and without resistance. But the invaders do not come to provide to the occupied ones paradise on earth. Occupants need resources.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about US presence in Europe, portraying Europe as a vassal of the USA and trying to undermine the sovereignty of the West. Russian disinformation sources like to claim that almost all European countries are no longer truly sovereign and the United States dictate policies to the EU and its member states.
Europe is not occupied by the US. 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.
