Completely autocratically, the unelected President of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, offers the war-torn Ukraine the status of “accession candidate” within a very short space of time. This is not only questionable with regard to the current war, the country was considered massively corrupt and democratically backward until the end of February. In itself, this announcement should lead to Mrs Von der Leyen being removed from office or to the dissolution of the EU.
All politics apparently follows the guidelines of Mr. Soros, who threatens to lose his 500 billion investment in Ukraine (Link: George Soros interventions in Ukraine: 500 billion investments in danger). The unworthy spectacle that is currently taking place has nothing to do with democracy – and in the case of Ursula Von der Leyen it never had.
The President of the European Commission promised Ukraine, personally and without a mandate from the European Parliament, that their application for EU membership would be dealt with particularly quickly. According to Von der Leyen, there is a way for Ukraine to join the EU. “It usually takes years for the EU Council to accept the application for membership, but Ukraine did it in a week or two. Our goal is to present Ukraine’s request to the Council this summer.said Von der Leyen. These statements are scandalous and autocratic. The EU was never meant to follow the orders of a ‘leader’ depending on her mood of the day. It doesn’t matter what opinion you have on the Ukraine war. Even if you are 100 percent on the side of Ukraine and condemn Russia, there is no legitimacy for Von der Leyen’s actions.
Admission of Ukraine would of course be a declaration of war by the entire EU on the nuclear and world power Russia, and the assistance pact within the EU would also take effect immediately – even if individual countries were allowed to consider whether and how they would take part in a military conflict. A Russia that finds itself militarily cornered will use nuclear weapons. This is not only part of Russian military doctrine, it was also clearly communicated.
Accession negotiations before final admission would take years – unless further tried-and-tested and contractually agreed mechanisms were shortened and overturned at will. The question is what obligations the EU assumes towards a candidate country, be they financial or military. Billions of EU taxpayers’ money have already flowed into Ukraine in recent years. It was only on February 21 that the EU approved 1.2 billion euros in subsidies for Ukraine – but that is only a small part of all the money that has already flowed in this direction. Before the Ukraine war, Western media were still allowed to report that this money was largely seeping away in the pockets of the Ukrainian oligarchs through opaque channels. It is also unclear how President Selenskyj, who was celebrated today, came to his fortune in the millions. Link: Selenskyj’s lucky knack for money: Earned a quarter of a billion since taking office
