Holiday with a hint on big-time politics. Georgy Bovt's comment

Putin's meetings with Trump, even short, it hasn't turned out. Macron has made several statements which many have apprehended as attack personally against Trump. Why, celebrating an event of century prescription, world leaders couldn't abstract from the present? Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS of the Head more than 60 countries have participated in the celebrations in Paris devoted to the 100 anniversary of the end of World War I. And in total — 130 world leaders. Among them Presidents of Russia and USA Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. A separate meeting between them, even short, it hasn't turned out. Presidents have managed to greet only each other during reception. Putin, answering a question of the journalist, I have told that he nevertheless managed to lead a small discussion with Trump which has taken place "well". To what nuances of these celebrations it is worth paying attention? Georgy Bovt:frantsuzsky comments the president Emmanuel Macron has tried to make everything to turn these celebrations into the benefit performance. It seems that he really asked other leaders not to hold bilateral meetings among themselves not to distract from the main thing. The Israeli prime minister Netanyahu has explained these lack of a meeting between him and Putin though they all the same managed to talk over on the Élysée Palace sidelines. Also leaders of the USA and Turkey Trump and Erdogan managed to talk among themselves at close range. Nuances of ceremonies in Paris show that, celebrating an event of century prescription, world leaders couldn't abstract completely from the present. For example, the same Macron, probably, already seeing itself De Gaulle's successor and at the same time Angela Merkel's successor as the chief European leader, I have made several statements which many have apprehended as attack personally against Trump. Macron's words in the solemn speech on the Champs Elysée where he has warned about danger of increase of policy of aggressive nationalism have been sent to his address. The "Old demons" who have led to World War I and millions become stronger again. The patriotism — is the direct opposite to nationalism. The nationalism is a treachery of patriotism" — Macron as if estimating the recent statement of Trump about itself as about "nationalist" has proclaimed. A few days ago Macron has again got back to the idea of creation of uniform European army. To resist, first of all, to Russia and China, but also, perhaps, and the USA. This idea expresses different European politicians not the first year and even not the first decade. It is staticized every time when the relations between Europe and the USA become complicated. Not so long ago the head of European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has supported creation of own army of the EU. This idea is supported now also by Germany. The current updating happens against the background of withdrawal of the USA from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty of 1987. To see the American rockets on the continent as in the 80th, Europeans don't want. Meanwhile there is only "The European case" created in 1992 with participation of 10 EU countries, and the only developed part is French-German the brig
