MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Head of the Kremlin administration Sergey Ivanov does not think that the European Union (EU) is falling apart at the seams but he sees logic in the strengthening of far-right parties in Europe.
“As any large conglomerate, the European Union goes through certain difficulties. And maybe, due to objective reasons these difficulties have increased recently,” Ivanov said in his interview to the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on Thursday in cautious comments on the independence referendum held in Scotland on September 18.
Ivanov is confident that separation processes in Europe are taking place with both the ethnic and economic factors in view.
“In my opinion, the European Union has begun expanding very rapidly and it has brought about problems,” he said.
“One thing is when the EU unites countries with a similar economic, mental and cultural background and another one is when millions of people with different mentality have flowed into the countries of Old Europe,” Ivanov said adding that as a result crime and in particular thefts are on the rise there.
“Naturally, Europeans are getting discontent and express it in a civilised way - at elections,” the head of the Kremlin administration said. “So we can see pretty often how far-right political parties in certain countries of Old Europe are gaining political weight and receiving votes.
