ukraine refusing to sign and trade and association agreement with the EU
0:04
like not to patrick Young he’s a writer and financial advisor
0:08
and he joins me now live a from apart and
0:12
at mister patrick Young welcome to RT is great to talk to you as always
0:16
so the European Council President I has cold
0:20
the deal the most ambitious offer ever
0:23
to non-member state at maybe ukraine should have taken a more long-term
0:27
perspective here
0:28
well i think is very interesting because of course
0:34
I mean president perot so what have many presidents within the European Union
0:38
is very very keen to try and make sure that everybody realizes that the
0:42
European Union has been bending over backwards but at the same time frankly
0:46
the day he wasn’t that great I mean
0:48
the president himself ukraine mister yarmulke which arrived last night and
0:52
described as being little more than something in a sweet proper
0:55
there was only a few hundred million euros potentially on offer
0:59
at a time when it’s well known that for the past year
1:02
Ukraine has been negotiating for a line of credit to the tune of $15
1:06
billion euros with the International Monetary Fund
1:09
so therefore list really was an aspirin to cure an appendicitis
1:14
magnets interesting because the president of the year a commission
1:17
touched on Russia’s proposal
1:19
joining talk so on the deal and let’s not listened to gather to
1:24
what he had to say for a bilateral agreement between European Union
1:29
and you crane there should be no
1:33
trilateral former the times
1:37
of limited sovereignty over in Europe so Patrick what do you make of that
1:43
well I think it’s an absolutely remarkable statement
1:49
I mean mister burrows so is telling us that the times unlimited sovereignty are
1:54
apparently coming to an end in Europe
1:56
and presumably that’s meant to be some sort of a slight against Russia
2:00
yet mister burrows it was a president who barely was elected by
2:04
a couple dozen people I do the European Union population of just over $500
2:09
million
2:10
let’s thinking help %ah Chrissy at the European Union these issues is quite on
2:14
rail
2:15
of course what we have is up petulant president perot so
2:19
is extremely upset because the eastern word
2:22
expansion of the European Union house for the first time in 20 years been
2:27
checked
2:27
and it’s been checked because when ukraine read the small print to the deal
2:32
they realize that actually they couldn’t possibly manage to make the thing at
2:36
work
2:36
it would going to render short term huge economic difficulties for ukraine
2:42
and this is a country for him actually most of their trade is to the east
2:46
20 percent with the likes i’ve Russia six or seven percent with Turkey
2:51
in fact the only European Union country really on the radar would have been its
2:55
neighbor poland around about 7 percent in terms of its
2:58
total trade so realistically the idea that mister burrows who is sitting
3:03
around telling the rest of the world
3:05
that the European Union is so superior a wonderfully democratic organization
3:10
when he himself played a role in trying to remove
3:14
the government should Greece and replace it with a non-democratic alternative
3:17
when he worked to replace indeed similarly a technocratic government in
3:21
Italy
3:22
it absolute thing reeks of hypocrisy
3:25
political just before the summit kicked off on Thursday
3:28
8 the present on the your parliament admitted listen that europe had
3:33
underestimated ukraine’s grave economic state
3:36
but now we’re back to blaming russia for this fail
3:39
why do you think at EU leaders
3:43
and annoyed meeting to their shortcomings
3:46
oh well
3:49
good grief I mean if the european union’s leaders whether individually or
3:54
collectively started admitting to their shortcomings
3:56
there’d be no end of problems wouldn’t there I mean look at the European Union
4:00
massive rant on employment throughout the course of the entire kit Union
4:05
wind up things like 50 percent plus youth unemployment in several
4:08
Mediterranean countries
4:09
they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco
4:13
built on sound by the sort of deluded technocrats
4:17
who believe they know the best thing for all people
4:20
and therefore realistically the only thing the European Union try to do
4:25
is keep blame storming anybody Russia
4:28
who cares but calls ultimately the European Union
4:32
what started on has rendered on a wonderful
4:36
supranational trade project is ultimately falling apart at the seams
4:40
because it has become itself crumbling soviet-style
4:45
empower which in many cases replicates
4:48
some of the more ridiculous facets of the old soviet union
4:51
the truth is right now I we have dynamism
4:54
in the eastern part of europe unfortunately the Western bureaucrats
4:59
Western political leaders within the European Union
5:02
failed to or simply are incapable of understanding
5:05
the realities of the New Deal that is the sovereignty
5:09
the central economic growth is moving east in this world
5:13
and that means countries like Russia and all the way to Asia
5:16
the difficulty is from Russia from Brussels
5:19
that a long way away and the problem we have is
5:22
looking western leaders are not willing to realize
5:25
their nations and indeed they’re great economic project
5:30
the grits supranational political project the European Union
5:33
is ultimately doomed on less
5:36
they realized they must do more at the bottom level
5:40
and actually leave a comment means to prosper
5:43
in their own right patrick Young writer and financial advisor talking to us live
5:48
from poland
5:49
patrick thank you very much indeed for your time thank you
