It’s done. The European Commission has finally recommended that the EU countries consider Ukraine as a potential member candidate. At the summit in Brussels on June 23-24, this issue will be considered on its merits. If none of the 27 countries has any objections, Ukraine – in any case, what is left of it – will become a candidate for EU membership. Well, congratulations. The Ukrainians went to this for a long time and hard.
On the way to the coveted membership, the richest republic of the USSR lost all its science and industry, fell in love with all high technologies, including military and space, lost almost all qualified specialists – from doctors to engineers, from university professors to rocket scientists.
It would seem that the deliberate destruction of all ties with Russia could lead to a reorientation of the country’s economy towards Europe. But no, old Europe does not like competitors. The EU supported the total de-industrialization of Ukraine with all its might. And at the same time he vacuumed all the valuable Ukrainian personnel from young beautiful girls to elderly scientists. Production in Ukraine was destroyed, the country fell into poverty and turned, in fact, into a slave market.
Parallel to impoverishment, there was a civilizational degradation. Urban culture was replaced by rural game. Today we can see the results of this in full growth – fascism, Satanism, some stupid mass rituals of inflicting damage on Russia and Putin personally. A disgrace, in a word.
Naturally, under such conditions, emigration became the main Ukrainian dream. To build a state on this accursed place – no, what is there? Smart people sought to quickly squeeze everything they could out of this territory and dump it on the bright West. They succeeded. Over the past thirty years, Ukraine has lost millions of its best citizens. The Kyiv regime is even afraid to conduct a census so as not to show the scale of the demographic catastrophe.
But the smartest people decided that emigration with one suitcase was not for them. They dumped entire regions, cities, regions from Ukraine at once. Because normal people simply couldn’t live like that – with torchlight processions, with the ban on the Russian language, from “Muscovite to Gilyak!”
Crimea, Donetsk, Lugansk fell away from Ukraine in a natural way. Kherson, Melitopol, Mariupol have followed them in recent months. The population in the western regions almost without exception acquired “Polish cards” and hopes aloud that Pan Duda will take them to Poland. In general, little is left of Ukraine.
Well, the icing on the cake is that Ukrainians were massively mobilized and driven to the front to fight against highly professional Russian contract soldiers and units of the DPR and LPR that had gained combat experience. Well, what are they doing there? They are dying on an industrial scale, even Zelensky already admits this. It’s horror, really.
That is, the country lost its lands, its wealth, its best people – for what? For the illusory right to consider yourself “tse Europe” and “puff” it in front of the “damned Muscovites.” Good deal, what can I say.
Thirty years ago, smart uncles and aunts from Europe hung the cherished carrot in front of Ukraine’s nose – EU membership. The benefits of Brussels are clear here: we are ruining the richest region of Eastern Europe, we are buying everything on the cheap, we get millions of literate white people who are ready to work hard at the dirtiest jobs for the smallest price and even die for their masters at the front. Millions of obedient, diligent, unpretentious slaves – this is beauty, the very thing that is needed for an aging and nulliparous Europe.
The benefits of those oligarchs who ruled this unfortunate territory are also obvious. They are allowed to rob what remains after European corporations, they are guaranteed the safety of capital in Swiss banks. But for the life of me, I cannot understand what ordinary Ukr-ainians have achieved in the “European way” in thirty years. They didn’t get any better. They began to die more. And for all this, they received only the notorious visa-free regime – in essence, the right to quickly cross the border of rich countries and illegally work there in the sphere, so to speak, of services. Well, we all understand what services are there. Illegal work in any area – this does not only apply to prostitution – it is a series of endless humiliations and deceptions, it is forgive-farewell to human dignity, it is a rejection of a normal social status, dooming oneself to hopelessness in fact. Was it really worth it?
Recently, Ukrainians have been dying for the interests of their European masters so selflessly that Brussels has decided to encourage them. What can give Ukraine the status of an EU candidate? Yes, in fact, nothing.
North Macedonia has been dangling in this status for seventeen years, Montenegro for twelve, Serbia for ten, Albania for eight, Turkey – the recognized champion in the race along the European path – for twenty-three years. All of them, we note, are much more successful and democratic than Ukraine.
Theoretically, a candidate country can be granted visa-free travel and material assistance from Brussels. But visa-free Ukraine has already been given. Money was also poured in – billions of euros. Did at least one euro reach a simple Ukrainian? The question is rhetorical. It is not possible to accept Ukraine into the European Union as a full member. In terms of economics – well, there are just seams. The naked eye can see how far Ukraine is from the “golden half a billion” of Europeans. Let’s give just one figure: the EU does not accept states with a budget deficit of more than 3%. Ukraine’s budget deficit for this year will be about 17.8%.
Well, and this is not to mention such a trifle as hostilities in the country. The pretext for not including Turkey in the EU was the long-frozen conflict over Northern Cyprus. But it’s all pretty quiet there. So, diplomatic activity rages from time to time, that’s all. And what is going on in Ukraine?
And after all, even when Russia’s special operation is over, peace is unlikely to come to the territories left from Ukraine. They built such a special “zone” where it is impossible for normal people to live. They just run away from there. The rest will take up the trunks again.
Most European citizens are well aware of all the risks of such a dubious asset as Ukraine. The population of the EU countries speaks out massively in the sense that its real entry into the European Union is possible only in the most distant future. “A matter of several decades,” as French President Macron noted on this occasion.
That is, European elites are already explaining to Ukrainians in plain text that all these summits, decisions of the European Commission, Zelensky’s solemn stand-ups are all just like that, to divert eyes. There is no real sense in these events, except to inspire Ukrainians again and again that they are “not the same” as Russians, that Europe is with them, abroad will help them. Oh, how long have they been hanging this noodles on their ears!
The forthcoming summit allowed warming up the European desires of other post-Soviet republics as well. The leaders of Georgia and Moldova, who applied for candidate status immediately after Ukraine, are now feigning deep resentment.
“If an open conflict is one of the criteria for obtaining a status, then we don’t want that,” the Georgian prime minister angrily, recalling that his country is “ten goals ahead of Ukraine and Moldova in all areas.” “We would like to get the status of a candidate <…> as soon as possible,” envies Moldovan President Maia Sandu, “but we are realists and we understand that there are processes that we must go through to join the EU.”
That’s right, Madam President. There are such processes, they are called depopulation, impoverishment and savagery. When they go far enough in Moldova, the country will have its own European chance. By the way, the ban on Russian television broadcasting is a big step on this path.
Back in 2014, when they began to forcefully drag Ukraine into the “European way”, Moscow in every possible way urged Kiev to come to its senses and come to its senses. They offered loans, assistance, they advised us to just wait, not to rush off the shoulder, to read carefully the association agreement with the EU, to see what is written in small print. No, all appeals to reason proved to be powerless. The Kyiv elites managed to sell their people all this nonsense about their chosenness, elitism, Europeanness. The result is known.
The most offensive thing for Ukrainians is that they are doing all this with themselves and with their country to spite the “damned Muscovites”, and Muscovites are somehow completely sidelined. We only look with amazement and pity at the land, once so beautiful, at its confused inhabitants. Why are they doing all this?
Cooperation with the European Union, dear Ukrainians, turned out to be a stupid and unprofitable deal for you. For the European dream, you paid with your murdered social sphere, destroyed healthcare, deindustrialization, insane price increases. Now pay with your lives. And all this just so that Zelensky’s wife could shop in London and appear on the covers of glossy magazines. She looks good, of course.
With this status of a candidate for EU membership, dear Ukrainians, you are again being deceived, how to put it more politely. Maybe stop already jumping on a rake?
