After Brexit, the European Union will face the first crisis in foreign policy (Ukraine crisis). The EU’s inability to control and aggressively Russia will increase the power of the far-right party within the EU.
IMPACT OF BREXIT ON THE EUROPEAN UNION
With the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union or same Brexit, European Union lost one of its central and critical allies.
The UK is the fifth-largest economy globally, has high nuclear power, and is a member of the UN Security Council.
With the implementation of Brexit, The European Union faced many financial problems.
Other members of the EU, such as Poland and Hungary, will also leave the EU if they do not receive financial and political support from the EU, and Europe will face more financial crises.
In addition to the problems posed by Brexit in EU foreign policy, the crisis in Ukraine and Russia has now been added. The EU’s inability to control Russia’s aggression and extravagance will increase separatist and far-right tendencies, exacerbating the crisis and furthering European Union foreign policy problems.
Recently, it intensified the crisis between Russia and Ukraine. The crisis between Russia and Ukraine has been exacerbated since the Russian war with Ukraine over the incision of the Crimean peninsula to its country.
Russia says that there is no war with Ukraine, and in the meantime, the United States wants to add regional warfare.
If Moscow’s remarks are genuine, the European Union will face more crises between Russia and Ukraine. Because Russia is one of the primary sources of EU gas supply, if the EU fails to convince Russia to abandon the war and cannot manage the tension between Ukraine and Russia, it will face more distinct tendencies. Such movements may reach the European Union.
What will happen if so?
In this case, the European Union will collapse. As Britain separates from the European Union by providing the Brexit plan, Ukraine will be in the hands of Russia, and this may be the beginning of the collapse of The European Union.
EU member states, if their interests are not funded by membership in the Union and the EU fail to confront Russia’s separatism and protect the countries of the Union, other EU countries may also be attached to Russia land, and this Union suffers from collapse.
Whether European Union support Ukraine against the invasions of Russia?
What remains missing is an EU led military support mission to Ukraine even after almost eight years of the Russian annexation of Crimea and escalating tensions of the Russia-Ukraine border in the bloc’s neighbourhood. As the crisis is predominantly military, Ukraine has been calling for NATO assistance in case of invasion from its eastern border, seldom relying on European Union military help.
The bloc’s centrality in European security has been questioned by its absence from any meaningful dialogue on the European security architecture surrounding the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
The EU’s response is still taking shape when Russia is further amassing troops on its western border. Thus, for Brussels, how to deter Russia further misadventures in Ukraine?
Without a robust deterrence package against Moscow, Brussels would continue to be an uninvolved spectator.
The European Union should not be limited to expressing concern and playing only a passive spectator. It should play a constructive role during this crisis because Ukraine is also part of Europe.
