Ukraine, Alcaro (Iai): “Putin wants to corner the EU, leadership is needed”

-

“Putin wants to corner the European Union” and has already “for years” adopted a strategy with the aim of “weakening and dividing” the bloc of 27, which at the moment lacks a “unifying figure” capable of exercise leadership. This was stated in an interview with Adnkronos Riccardo Alcaro, head of the ‘Global actors’ program of the Institute of International Affairs (Iai), on the eve of the European Council that he will have to evaluate the green light for the candidacy of Ukraine and Moldova to the EU. The invasion of Ukraine, Alcaro argues, provoked a harsh European response, but Putin for his part is trying to create “problems of cost sustainability” in the EU by cutting gas supplies and blocking the export of wheat. This last point risks having political and security consequences on the southern shore of the Mediterranean and triggering new migratory flows. The Russian president “will continue to do everything to raise these costs and therefore make the common line of toughness and firmness unsustainable. so far maintained by the EU, albeit with a difference in accents in the various capitals “, declares the expert, according to which, however, at the moment Putin’s strategy does not seem to work.” For now, the war has generated highly negative strategic results for Putin , because not only has it excluded Russia from economic integration with Europe, but will bring a very serious economic crisis to the country “, continues Alcaro, underlining however how Putin’s ‘pressures’ – which” are unlikely “to succeed in dividing the front European Union and the visit to Kiev of Draghi, Macron and Scholz “swept away any doubts” about it – they are more likely to succeed on public opinion, on which issues such as The blockade of wheat and the food crisis are taking hold. According to Alcaro, among the “dynamics” generated by the conflict that are bringing “contrary results” to those that Moscow expected from the invasion, there is first of all the fact that NATO is widening and “is much more willing to militarize the border with Russia”. Furthermore, the EU has taken “fundamental decisions” by reconfiguring its energy relations with Russia through a “colossal reduction” in oil imports with “irrelevant exceptions”. Finally, adds the expert, he decided to integrate Ukraine and Moldova, which are therefore “destined to come out of the orbit of Russian influence.” The IAI expert finally highlights a leadership problem at European level, noting how there is a lack of a “unifying figure” in this historical juncture. “Scholz has not gained sufficient consensus and authority within the EU and Macron has always been more divisive than unifying and moreover, after the elections he has internal political problems – observes – Draghi instead has an undeniable international authority, leads one of the main countries Europeans, however, is a timed leader and we do not know what his political prospects will be next year “.
