Strategic compass. CNN Reveals Details Of EU Defense Plan

This week, EU member states were presented with the Strategic Compass for Security and Defense, a plan that outlines actions to ensure the bloc’s internal security.

The corresponding document was at the disposal of CNN .

It provides a mechanism that explains how the efforts of the EU member states can be coordinated in the event of a joint military force being used. The key proposal is the ability for the bloc to deploy up to 5,000 troops to counter potential crises.

Such rapid reaction teams will be represented by military personnel from all EU countries, rather than permanent troops that are subordinate to Brussels. Their tasks will range from evacuations to peacekeeping or humanitarian missions, particularly at borders.

Not all 27 EU countries will be required to participate in such an initiative. However, deploying the military on behalf of the European Union will require the approval of all members of the bloc. The details of such a mechanism have yet to be approved.

The document also talks about a common approach to defense procurement, research and intelligence – this can make the European Union more efficient and competitive.

To clarify the details, CNN spoke to over 20 European officials, diplomats and politicians from various EU member states. Everyone agrees on a key message: action must be taken to keep Europe safe.

At the same time, Poland, Estonia and Lithuania support this plan only on condition that it outline a specific threat, which they see Russia and, to a lesser extent, China. Because of the Russian Federation, the Scandinavian countries are also worried. According to their representatives, they are exposed to ” real danger from Russia.”

Despite the fact that the document refers to the deterioration of relations between the EU and Moscow, it states that “ common interests and a common culture actually bind the EU and Russia” and “Europe will still interact with the Russian Federation on certain specific issues in which there are common priorities “.

The presentation of the defense strategy took place against the background of the migration crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border. Since August, the Belarusian regime has been bringing refugees to the Polish border in an organized manner; Lithuania and Latvia also faced an influx of refugees. In the European Union, they started talking about new sanctions against the Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko, and the neighboring countries of Belarus have strengthened their borders and increased the number of troops there.

Also a few weeks ago, influential world media began to report on the buildup of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine. The United States fears that Russia will repeat its 2014 mistake with regard to Ukraine .

  1. “Despite the fact that the document refers to the deterioration of relations between the EU and Moscow, it states that “ common interests and a common culture actually bind the EU and Russia” and “Europe will still interact with the Russian Federation on certain specific issues in which there are common priorities “.

    This so called EU defence plan will never see light of day. If they can’t or won’t recognise the enemy in Europe, what’s the fucking point of having a defence plan. If this plan did get implemented, who will they send to do the fighting? The Germans with their yard brushes, or the Frogs with their white flags?

  2. There is only one threat to the EU and it’s the same one that Ukraine and Georgia faces every day : putlerstan.
    The EU faces weaponised migrants sent under the orders of putlerstan and its agent Merkel. Ukraine and Georgia faces terror, misdirection, destabilization and putlerstani jackboots on the ground.
    I would suggest that we forget about Nato and the EU; they are both thoroughly penetrated by putlerstan. The old military formations of the US and UK in West Germany need urgently to be reconstituted and stationed in Ukraine, Georgia, Poland and Lithuania.
    Britain, Ukraine and Poland should stick together: all of us have virtually zero friends in the EU. I would go as far as to say that France and Germany are defacto enemies of Britain.

  3. “Not all 27 EU countries will be required to participate in such an initiative. However, deploying the military on behalf of the European Union will require the approval of all members of the bloc.”
    With typical EU fashion, they make up totally stupid concepts and this one is no different. Not everyone must participate but everyone must agree. Good lord, what a pack of morons is running this sad organization. I feel sorry for every man, woman and child having to live in the EU.
    At any rate, if we use past measures needing EU members’ approval as precedents of how things are done and the length of time they need to do them, mafia troops would arrive in Madrid by the time they agree to do something to stop those mafia troops.
