Vladimir PutinSorprendentemente, a pesar da súa dura confrontación política, as dúas superpotencias mundiais, Estados Unidos e Rusia, teñen moito en común, escribe Adomas Abromaitis.

They very often behave in the same way. This is particularly evident in political and military spheres. Their main common feature that usually threatens the smaller states is absolute autonomy in their actions while achieving the status of “superstate”. The rest of the world becomes a hostage to Russia’s and the US’s decisions and policies. Unfortunately, today, the role of “hostage” has gone to Europe. It is Europe that has to change its mind and abandon traditional values, review its policies and even plans for further development.

Un exemplo é o aumento do gasto en defensa de ambas as partes, que levou á resposta europea paralela.

Rusia aumentou o seu gasto militar o ano pasado un 7.5%, ata os 66.4 millóns de dólares. Á súa vez, Estados Unidos seguiu sendo o líder, representando o 36 por cento de todo o gasto militar no mundo, segundo o informe SIPRI. En 2015, Washington aumentou o seu gasto en defensa un 2.4 por cento ata os 596 millóns de dólares. Como resultado, os estados europeos da OTAN teñen que declarar o aumento da planificación dos seus gastos militares por primeira vez en case unha década.

Another recent example that shows existing dependence on each other’s steps is a grandiose Russia’s military parade in Moscow on May 9, 2016. It was held to demonstrate Russia’s military power and its new defence capabilities. The US was also not left out: over 1400 soldiers and 400 vehicles displayed their “dynamic presence” in Europe during Dragoon Ride II. Dragoon Ride is a 2,200-kilometre trek from Germany to Estonia, en route to Saber Strike 16. This convoy will continue through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and finally ending in Estonia.

Unidades estadounidenses a piques de participar no exercicio de adestramento de Sabre Strike nos países bálticos en xuño o venres started a vehicle road. A column of US tanks and vehicles maneuver through smoke and dust to demonstrate Russia the US’s power and resolve.

Such demonstrations of superiority and military might stir up the situation in Europe and divide people into those who support militarization of the region and those who strongly oppose. It should be said that anti-NATO moods manifestation become the integral part of any NATO’s large event as well as anti-Russia rhetoric accompanies any Moscow’s actions. A member of a group of Czech and Slovakian soldiers opposed to NATO, described the US soldiers as “aggressors, killers and occupiers” as Dragoon Ride II desfilou polo país durante a fin de semana. Así como Rusia foi duramente criticada por Media por excesiva agresividade.

Europe turned to be between two sides, and each of them is not supposed to back down. They play cat-and-mouse with smaller countries and do not care about other states’ interests. Smaller countries such as Slovakia, Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and others look at the US military raid on Europe as if it is normal. But European security, first of all, is a matter for Europeans themselves.

Pero Rusia e Estados Unidos ignoran a opinión doutros, considerando a súa acción como os únicos pasos correctos e non deixan a outros países a oportunidade de escoller o seu propio camiño.
