The Daily Express tabloid journalists compared the EU to a camel loaded with luggage, and, keeping in mind the ancient Eastern wisdom, it is enough to add just one straw to break its back.
According to People’s News, the British publication believes that the European Union is on the brink of disaster, and the reason for this is the disunity of the participating countries in the issue of energy security.
“The European Union is divided and weak,” the experts noted.
According to British journalists, while one part of Europe was fighting for the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project, the other part was diligently putting sticks in their wheels. As a result, on the eve of winter, Europe runs the risk of being left without heating and only Russia can save it.
Even the head of Naftogaz, Yuri Vitrenko, pointed to this disunity in Europe, saying that the pipeline deal, which was concluded between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the President of Russia, could make the EU weak and divided.
According to the authors of the article, Europe has never been as weak as it is today, and one “straw” is enough to break the existing system.
