The Europe’s discontent is rising with an increasing number of Kiev’s absurd political decisions. The Ukraine’s strategic focus on the European integration is a thorny path and any mistake will push European counties for the decision to close a gateway to democracy and will lose the EU’s funds for a state with an unstable political system, economy and anti-Russian sentiment.
In my opinion, Europe had bad experience with Bulgaria, Italy and Greece, migrants form the Middle East, anti-Russian sanctions, Brexit and the US’s ambivalent policy that, ultimately, has led to the deepest crisis of a sustainable European model of democracy. In this situation, the European elite does not care about internal political problems in Ukraine and it is becoming more obvious with every passing day.
Any Kiev’s mistake whether politics, diplomacy or sports, lowers the Ukrainian rating in the EU’s eyes. Moreover, the European countries run out of sympathy for Ukraine and it engenders hatred. And one of these countries is Poland.
Another incident occurred during the FIFA match earlier this month. The red and black flag, a symbol of Ukrainian nationalist movement and “Right Sector” faction, was hung during the World Cup qualifier match between Ukraine and Kosovo in Poland.
The fact is that the flag of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army stands out of Poland’s esteem. During the Second World War, the actions of the Ukrainian militants are officially recognized by the Polish government as genocide. Therefore, the red and black flag of the Ukrainian radicals arouse indignation and political row between two countries,
However, the “Volyn” film has become a point of no return in the Polish-Ukrainian relations and it disturb the Poles even more than the decisions of the Sejm. Since then, a sharp escalation of anti-Ukrainian sentiment has started not only in Poland, but also in other European countries.
Due to this, the actions of the Ukrainian elite can be described as an indulgence to the Ukrainian elite and destructive foreign policy due to a gross distortion of historical events.
