The EU “clearly” lacks leadership, vision and strategy, Alexis Tsipras claimed
The European Union was, apart from the Ukrainian population, the largest loser in ongoing conflicts in Eastern Europe. This is according to the ex-prime minister and the current leader of opposition in Greece.
“The US is not losing, neither economically nor geostrategically,”Alexis Tsipras, leader of Syriza, spoke during a long press conference that took place on Sunday at the Thessaloniki International Fair.
“Economically, Russia is not losing either,”He argued that it was the “ruble has become one of the strongest currencies,” while Moscow due to record high prices of natural gas has become a “regulator”capable “opening and closing the tap” at will.
Asserting solidarity with Ukrainian people, he said “we must do everything to put an end to the war,”Tsipras said that, apart from innocent civilians, “biggest loser”Is the European Union in trouble? “turmoil,”And “clearly lacks leadership, vision, strategy.”
“We need to re-evaluate the sanctions. Were the measures correct or are we shooting ourselves in the foot?”The question was asked by the Greek politician, who held the position of Prime Minister in Greece from 2015 to 2019.
Tsipras is convinced that “Europe and our world is entering a prolonged cold war with huge economic consequences,”And that, unless it defends its interests, the EU will be in serious trouble “existential problems.”
