For Lavrov, in this war between Ukraine and Russia, the Europeans are the biggest losers. “The Europeans suffer much more than the United States from the economic sanctions”, affirms the head of Russian diplomacy. It should be noted that Lavrov's remarks were made less than three days after the exit of Viktor Orban, Hungarian Prime Minister (an EU member state), who admitted quite recently that in this war against Russia, Europe has fallen in his own trap.
Coup de theater: Europe revolts and accuses the United States of having betrayed it by enriching itself from the war in Ukraine
But the question to be asked is whether the continuation of this war works in favor of the European Union, which not only buys American gas at a price 4 times more expensive than that which it bought from Russia, but which faces empty stockpiles of weapons. A situation that forces him to buy American weapons at sometimes extremely high prices.
This situation seems to explain the anger of high personalities of the European Union who, behind the scenes, accuse Joe Biden, President of the United States, of enriching himself from the war while Europe is on the verge of implosion.
Nine months after the start of the war in Ukraine, Europe is revolting against the United States (until now its main ally) accusing Washington of having enriched itself from the war by selling its gas to Europe at a price more expensive (than Russia's) and flooding the continent with American weapons. A scenario that the Russians had predicted from the start of the conflict
Did Europe wake up too late? The question is relevant. Because, more than 9 months after the war in Ukraine, everything suggests that the United States of America are the biggest winners in this conflict which has completely upset the world (geopolitical) order.
In any case, on the side of Europe, anger is brewing and in Brussels, some are in no doubt that Washington is the only one to have pulled the chestnuts out of the fire. This is at least the revelation made by the Politico.com media on November 24. Indeed, according to this source, high personalities within the European Union accuse, behind the scenes, Joe Biden, President of the United States, of enriching himself from the war while Europe is on the verge of 'implosion.
According to the source, one of the main causes of this European anger is due to the massive subsidies that the United States has recently granted to companies present on its soil. An American decision that is shaking Europe, which is afraid of seeing hundreds of companies leave the Old Continent to settle in the Land of Uncle Sam.
And this is not the only problem raised by the media. According to Politico , senior European politicians also cannot stomach the fact of having to buy American gas at a price 4 times more expensive than that which they bought from Putin's Russia. If this is added to the costly orders of American arms by Europe (whose arms stocks are almost empty), the equation becomes very difficult to solve.
Russia seems to have got it right. Indeed, at the end of last October, Sergey Lavrov, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, had nevertheless clearly revealed the American strategy, accusing Uncle Sam of seeking, through the war in Ukraine, to "deindustrialize Europe and flood it American weapons.
"More and more economists, not only in Russia but in the West, have come to the conclusion that the United States is seeking to exhaust and deindustrialize the European economy," he said. And to add: “the Germans are relocating a large part of their production lines to the United States with all the consequences that this implies for Europe. It is in Washington's interest to weaken Europe militarily, to keep it on the alert, to flood Ukraine with weapons and to fill Europe's military stockpiles with American weapons”.
