Large scaled protests in Ukraine related to arrival of the American transport ship to seaport of Feodosia has made evident the unpleasant truth. Ukrainians and others seem to make no difference between NATO and “Yunkees”. When they shouted so emotionally, “NATO out!” they meant Americans. Americans are major irritant for them … But I am scary that Europeans allied to Americans in the framework of NATO can’t be viewed as friends by them as well! European Ukrainians see European Germans e.g. as aliens! Dig into it. Here lies the gravest threat to European stability. That threat is NATO! Actually it’s no revelation at all that NATO embracing major European countries is fully subdued by America and is perceived mainly as war oriented American military bloc. Notorious image of NATO due to its involvement in Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan mars reputation of Europeans. Actually there’s nothing to boast of. Plain truth is that Europe can’t balance American influence in NATO. All in all, European majors are just doomed to failure in Ukraine and elsewhere in post communist countries if in American NATO. I guess the move in the rightful direction would be forming of our own European defense forces to gain trust in post communist space without NATO.
