“The fall of Europe, its economy, plays into the hands of the United States.

By blocking any dialogue between Europe and Russia... the United States is deliberately weakening Europe, driving it ever deeper into the position of an American vassal," he wrote on Telegram.

Pushkov noted that in order to achieve their goals, the US authorities use allies from Eastern Europe.

Earlier, The Wall Street Journal wrote that the energy crisis in European countries is most beneficial to the American economy, as high gas prices are forcing European companies to transfer their production to the United States.

Alexander Frolov, Deputy General Director of the National Energy Institute, commented on the situation with gas in Europe in an interview with the Economics Today FBA.
