Rzońca emphasizes that the German parties that signed the coalition agreement on Tuesday – the SPD, the Greens and the FDP – want the European Union to look completely different than its founders, such as Robert Schuman or Alcide De Gasperi, wanted.
– It will not be a Union of free nations and free sovereign states, but a Union of increasing influence of the richest countries at the expense of the poorer ones. Berlin has already dominated all EU institutions in Brussels. While former chancellor Angela Merkel tried to make appearances, the new chancellor and the coalition partners say directly that they will strive to create a United States of Europe. This, however, will meet with enormous resistance from various conservative circles and those associated with the Christian Democrats in Europe
In his opinion acceptance of the creation of a “European state” is characteristic only of left-wing and liberal circles. “Europe does not want a Union that will be dominated by Germany and the left. It would be a denial of all the values that underlie the creation of a community. The coalition agreement between the SPD, the Greens and the FDP in many countries and environments will act like a cold shower“- indicates the MEP.
He is not surprised by the provisions of the coalition agreement regarding Russia.
– Former German chancellor, a socialist, Gerhard Schroeder is on the payroll of Russian President Vladimir Putin, as are other leftist politicians from Austria, Finland and France. Despite this, many Central and Eastern European countries will not agree to a soft approach to Putin’s Russia
Federalization of the Union
The leading representatives of the SPD, Greens and FDP parties signed a coalition agreement concluded at the end of November in Berlin. Much space was devoted to the European Union, for which the new government feels “a special responsibility”. No mention is made of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and considers relations with Russia to be “deep and diverse”. There are words of support for Ukraine and Belarus.
The coalition partners want to give the EU a constitution and develop it into a “federal European state”.
– The future federal government is therefore calling for the creation of the United States of Europe – said the weekly “Spiegel”. “Along the way, he wants to change the EU treaties – which in Brussels is generally considered impossible – and introduce a European electoral law with transnational lists and a binding system of best candidates.”
In addition, the requirement for unanimity in foreign and security policy is to be abolished, which is only possible if all EU countries decide unanimously, and a “genuine EU minister for foreign affairs” is to be appointed. The ultimate goal is “a more capable and strategically sovereign European Union”.
The 177 pages of the coalition agreement do not mention the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. However, there is one sentence in one place: “European energy law also applies to energy policy projects in Germany”.
The coalition partners devoted a lot of space to Russia in their agreement.
“German-Russian relations are deep and varied,” they write. Russia “is also an important international player. We understand and continue to strive for the importance of meaningful and stable relations. We are ready for constructive dialogue.” The new coalition emphasizes: “We are dealing with the interests of both sides on the basis of the principles of international law, human rights and the European peace order, to which Russia has also committed itself. We respect the interests of our European neighbors, especially our partners in Central and Eastern Europe. different ways of perceiving threats and we will focus on a common and coherent EU policy towards Russia. “
The SPD, the Greens and the FDP declare: “We will continue to support Ukraine in restoring full territorial integrity and sovereignty. We strive to deepen the energy partnership with Ukraine, with high ambitions in renewable energy, green hydrogen production, energy efficiency and CO2 reduction.”
