EU member States until now has not developed a common opinion in respect of the Russian operations in the Syrian Arab Republic, forcing Washington to be nervous - this is the conclusion analysts of the American research center Stratfor. The U.S. fears that the EU eventually will bow to Russia's position, and it will give Moscow an opportunity to mitigate pressure due to a geopolitical fall associated with Ukraine, they say.
"of course, Russia and Europe are not close to contention in Ukraine. However, the conflict entered the phase, when the thought about the fact that the EU might weaken penalties in the beginning of next year, does not seem so unusual ", - said analysts of Stratfor.
along with this, European States, experts underline, very warily observe the actions of Russia in the Syrian Arab Republic.
"as the U.S. and Russia are currently pursuing the opposite goals in the Syrian Arab Republic, for the EU becomes politically difficult to weaken punishments, since it will hold some sort of line between the EU and the US and their individual views on Russian politics. But the European position is even less complicated, since they (European States - ed.) have their thoughts on how to resolve the Syrian crisis ", - stated in the publication.
in addition, from the perspective of analysts, the overwhelming majority of the European countries preserves the relative silence is not entirely due to tense relations with the US, not entirely due to the fact that " different Countries have different views on Syria, and scoring of these contradictions may undermine the unity ".
As noted by Stratfor, certain statements of the European politicians still followed, and they let reserved, but expressed support to the Russian operations in the Syrian Arab Republic.
The US, with his own hand, analysts continue, told that are not only against the involvement of European countries in an operation in the Syrian Arab Republic, but even against discuss Syrian issue with Russia.
"Washington fears that Europe may eventually Express support for the Russian operation in the field and so to undermine US efforts. Anyway, the Europeans are an integral part of the unfolding events, " writes Stratfor, Recalling that the EU was the largest wave of immigrants from the conflict zone.
The authors write that the Russian Federation appears as a force capable to resolve the Syrian conflict, and this idea is tempting for Europeans. Experts remind that a similar scenario was completed in 2013, when Russia made proposals for the settlement of the fall, associated with the use of weapons of mass destruction. Then, remind the Authors, the majority of European States supported Russia's plans, provoking some tensions with the US.
"One of the results (European search resolution of the conflict - ed.) is likely to be an attempt of Europe to reduce the Russian Federation and USA Together to resolve the Syrian situation in tandem. It looks like the Ukrainian and Syrian crises will be inextricably linked to an equally large negotiations, as planned, Russia will be willing to accept that the U.S. or not, " concludes Stratfor.
