The US promoted von der Leyen to weaken the EU

Summary of Disinformation

There’s no use arguing that a person with Ursula von der Leyen’s track record cannot possibly succeed in the highest post in the EU, therefore it’s evident that some force has been strongly “promoting” her to this post. It is not difficult to identify this “mysterious force”, since nor Europe, nor its ordinary citizens can gain anything from poor leadership. It’s noteworthy that in the aftermath of yet another catastrophe associated with poor leadership – Brexit, Washington has lost its last means of directly influencing European politics through London. It’s clear that the US has no interest in observing a strong union of states across the pond.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US presence in Europe.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Europe is occupied by the US and has limited sovereignty, the EU is directed by Washington, Germany is the executor of US hegemony over Europe; The USA is controlling Europe through occupied Germany.

See here and here for more information about how the EU citizens and institutions elect their leaders.
