Under pressure from the West’s anti-Russian position of Rome public debt in the EU rose to a record high, unemployment rising and the flow of migrants continues.
In 2016, Britain shocked the international community, saying the results of the referendum on secession from the European Union. That was followed by a talk about the collapse of the EU. Especially the situation is aggravated on the background of anti-Russian sanctions of the West and the migration crisis. Hungary, Italy and other countries began to protest against the dominance of refugees from Africa and the Middle East, local business, demanded to lift restrictions against Russia.
And now, after three years, there has been another candidate for the exit from the EU. Italy is experiencing under pressure from the West a huge problem. The head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said that Rome needs to be engaged in the economy because last year alone, the country’s national debt overtook the GDP, and the unemployment rate rose to leadership in the EU positions.
All this is happening against the backdrop of the failure of Italy to accept the refugees and disagreement are updated after the election in 2018 the government’s policy of Brussels. Among other things, in Rome, dissatisfied with the russophobian sentiments of the leading politicians of the EU. This is despite the fact that the relations of Italy and Russia in recent years have become increasingly close.
For example, we all remember how the head of the Italian interior Ministry recently said in an interview that the Crimea belongs to the “historically Russian regions with Russian culture and traditions”, and therefore belongs to Russia “legally”. It is obvious that the leadership of the EU, this and many other statements of Italian politicians don’t like it, but because the exit of Italy from the Commonwealth here may be perceived not so negative. The bookies, meanwhile, are already betting that rim will be following the London “outcast” in the EU and will soon leave the organization. Probably, according to the policy of the local authorities, Italy still goes from Brussels to Russia.
Brexit at the time was a shock to the European and world community. However, many in the EU believed and continue to believe that the flight of Britain would not be so tragic for the event in the European Union. Another thing, if after it will go Italy and Germany. As you know, mastodon German and European policy, one of the pillars of the EU – Angela Merkel – will leave his post in 2021. And this against a backdrop of increasing anti-European and Pro-Russian sentiment in Germany. This trend means only one thing – the collapse of the EU is approaching.
