Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Without its own defense forces, the EU will be lacking sovereignty and ability to have a voice on the world stage. The UK post-Brexit refuses credentials for an EU ambassador's post. Can't envision a more rude slap in the face ... however the meeting of Borrell in the Kremlin or the rude reception in Ankara is right at the top.

As the EU-27 states are struggling post-Brexit, a new EU Commission, a global Covid-19 pandemic ... the global powers are succeeding in bilateral agreements to make Brussels irrelevant. In addition, a powerful German voice is absent as the country is divided in four parts: Greens-CDU-CSU and the AfD.
