EU Accuses Washington Of Making A Fortune From Ukraine War
Leading figures in the European Union are beginning to question the United States government’s intentions with regards to how it’s approaching the Russo-Ukrainian conflict.
According to a Politico report, a growing number of European leaders are beginning to blame the US for profiting off of this conflict.
“Nine months after invading Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is beginning to fracture the West,” Politico noted. “Top European officials are furious with Joe Biden’s administration and now accuse the Americans of making a fortune from the war, while EU countries suffer.” Due to the ongoing energy crisis, which is disproportionately rocking the EU, certain leaders are calling for negotiations behind the scenes to de-escalate the Russo-Ukrainian conflict. The Collective West has become a de facto party to this conflict through its constant supply of weapons, military equipment, and economic aid.
One of the major points of contention was how the Biden regime has put forward green subsidies and taxes which are viewed as unjustly punishing European companies during this energy crunch.
A senior European official, who remained anonymous, said to Politico that the Biden regime is using the Ukraine war to enrich American defense contractors while ignoring European requests for economic aid in this sensitive economic moment.
“The fact is, if you look at it soberly, the country that is most profiting from this war is the U.S. because they are selling more gas and at higher prices, and because they are selling more weapons,” the European official proclaimed.
The official picked up on this growing rift between Europe and the US, which is largely being driven by the Biden regime’s uncompromising “win in Ukraine at all costs” stance.
“We are really at a historic juncture,” the senior EU official declared. “America needs to realize that public opinion is shifting in many EU countries.”
Indeed, the Russo-Ukrainian conflict has a cynical geopolitical dimension to it. Russia has largely viewed Ukraine, especially its eastern regions, as part of its civilization sphere. Moreover, detaching Ukraine from Russia would deal a major economic and security blow to Russia.
On top of that, it has been an Anglo-American objective to ensure that Russia never gets integrated into the European continental system. Any rift, especially one between Germany and Russia, is welcome by geopolitical strategists in London and Washington DC.
If Europe doesn’t grow spine and deviate from the neocon consensus, it will accelerate towards self-inflicted poverty — a very preventable fate.
