Nuclear deal with Iran and the withdrawal of heavy weapons of the militias in Eastern Ukraine declare the obvious "thaw" in relations between Russia and the United States, Sputnik international, citing German magazine DWN.
"Only a few weeks ago, U.S. policy called the Russian Federation as one of the most dangerous security threats, along with Islamic state. Now Obama said that a deal on Iran's nuclear program would not have been possible without the participation of Russia ", - reported in the publication. Obama "almost friendly" praised the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian negotiation team for its constructive role in the negotiations. In addition, in a reversal from his previous statements, which he incessantly referred to "Russian aggression in Ukraine," Obama said about the "distinctions" in assessing the situation in Ukraine.
As pointed DWN, Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, U.S. Secretary of state John Queria trying to stabilize the situation in Ukraine, and this collaboration was initiated Some time ago during the visit of Kerie in the capital of Russia. However, the improvement of relations between Moscow and Washington are concerned the EU - "after a number of months of confrontation with Russia, European leaders, who blindly follow the instructions of the USA, was offside," emphasizes DWN.
The EU had to pay a high price for the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions, had a devastating impact on their economies. In addition, hope of the European leaders in commercial business with Iran may be an illusion. In contrast to Russia, the EU did not support any contacts with that state. But the main problem for the EU is the situation in Ukraine. According to the publication, "reckless," the Association agreement between Ukraine and the EU will become a burden on European taxpayers, As the Price of Ukrainian "salvation" will exceed the Price of Greek aid several times.
To at least not be fully protected financial losses, the European Union is obliged to remove the anti-Russian punishment as soon As possible, develop its own position in international politics and to act on their own during the thaw of U.S.-Russian relations. Otherwise, the EU countries have the opportunity to pay a high price for their blind submission to U.S. policy.
