As a result of developments in Ukraine, the US expanded its political and military presence in Europe. One of the main US priorities is to ensure that key EU member states keep anti-Russian sanctions and to shift the burden of Ukraine’s social and economic problems on to the EU.
This message is consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about abandoned Ukraine and the EU under the control of the US.
EU Member States make sovereign decisions about their own security and policies. The US is an important ally to the EU but its policy is independent. For more information, see the speech by Federica Mogherini, EU's High Representative for Foreig Affairs and Security Policy.
