COVID-19 Crisis Reveals Deepening Rift Within European Union

Click to see the full-size image

The rift within the European Union has been growing over the inability of the bloc to respond properly to the COVID-19 outbreak and assist the most affected states.

So far, the biggest EU achievement in the field is the March 27 decision to take two weeks to consider a plan on how to help the affected states. Such a stark rebuke to Italy and Spain caused an expected negative reactions. Italy’s Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte warned that the EU project might “lose its foundations” if it fails to stand up against the crisis.

“If Europe does not rise to this unprecedented challenge, there is a danger that the European house loses its foundations before the eyes of our citizens,” Conte told Il Sole 24 Ore newspaper.

He described the current situation within the EU, especially in Italy’s relations with Germany as a “hard confrontation”.

The reason of tensions is not only the unwillingness of separate EU states to help the affected countries with specialists and medical supplies at any kind of really notable extent, but also the funding issue. The German-led part of the bloc fierecely reists Italian and Spanish requests to help their economies via the EU official bodies.

    What rift? the mean self centered Eurotrash arseholes are just out for themselves and don’t give a shit about humanity, so Russia, China and Cuba had to save the Jew controlled arseholes who lick their Americunt masters arse, but the fuckwit Americunts don’t even have masks or gloves for their own morons. Only China is sending a train load with one billion masks. These dumbass mean spirited shitheads were happy killing one another 70 years ago on a industrial scale and you expect them to act human? Only Russia saved them in 1945 at a tremendous human cost of 26 million Soviet lives. These worthless faggots.

      How many lives did Russia, China and Cuba saved in Italy until now?

      • Zionism = EVIL

        A few thousand at least, the Italians did not even have hand sanitizers or gloves, let alone masks. Now the Americunts are dying at exponential levels due to the same corrupt inhumanity. Just Jew York has more cases than all of Europe now and no one cares as the Jews are too busy profiteering.

        • occupybacon

          Where are your numbers from? According to which experts?

      • Traiano Welcome

        How many lives did the USA, EU and UK save in Italy until now?

        Numbers and statistics from verifiable sources please. Asking as an Italian.

        • occupybacon

          So it’s not about saving lives, it’s about blaming USA and EU

          • Ricky Miller

            They’ve earned it. The United States and the EU are the prophets of modern neoliberal capitalism, and they have spread it forcefully with both economic intimidation and even force of arms. The mass movement of people, the endless mass consumption for consumption sake, the large scale and growing wealth inequality, the massive scale of waste that the system produces, that’s all on them. Government failed to respond to this crisis quickly enough because it is no longer in service of all the people, but only in service to those who need the wheels of commerce and open borders to keep turning. The U.S. and the EU are the globalist architects and puppet string masters of this system, even going so far as to suppress democratic efforts among electorates to control and reform it. In owning this system and in an extreme defense of it they get the full blame for it’s failures.

            In Russia the wealth inequality is greater than in the US

          • Ricky Miller

            It’s difficult to know that for sure. Bill Gates and the richest 100 Americans are beyond the realitive rich of the oligarchs, who emulate America’s and Europe’s big money class. What we do know for sure is that the United States sent advisors to the Yeltsin administration in order to set up the oligarchs and transplant America’s economic and political system onto the Russian Federation.

            Those 90+ jewish billionaires from Moscow came from America too?

            So it’s not about saving lives, it’s about blaming Russia, China and Cuba?

          • occupybacon

            There is no Russian article about helping Italy without heralding that move already disolved EU’s unity and proclaiming victoory over the Western decadent society. I’m blaming them for using their medics effort for propaganda. And all this while the Ruble keeps sinking comparing with the most currencies…

          • Arch Bungle

            Garbage. The value of saving lives outweighs any fantasized notion of propaganda value. The fact is that they are Saving lives while the EU stands by and hinders the process. If Truth is used as Propaganda, the Truth is still the Truth.

    USA,France and Britain are taking time to implement one world currency. Due to the reasoning of money’s got contaminated is the main excuse to speedily facilitate the microchip injection through vaccines.

    It is called computer control money flow control through trade and marginalization.

  • RichardD

    Can you blame the Germans for not wanting to subsidize the economic suicide that their neighbors are committing as they deliberately implode their economies?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Good point and Swedes are having a normal life too. These Anglo shitheads are spreading panic for some dubious agenda of police state.

    It isn’t inability; this is what the politics of the last 50 years was for, to re-colonise the Euro working class.
