Manfred Weber can become the president of the European Commission. What does it mean for Russia?


Manfred Weber.
According to media, his nomination was supported by Angela Merkel. Experts didn't notice the anti-Russian moods for Weber. Whether it is possible to hope for improvement of the relations of the European Union and Russia? Manfred Weber. Photo: PA Images/TASS the President of the European Commission can become Manfred Weber. As the German media report, his nomination was supported by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. If to choose Weber, then the weight of Germany in the EU considerably will grow. Though already now Berlin has huge weight in European Parliament as his main fraction is conservative "People's party" in which main role is played by the German block of CDU/CSU, the head of the Center of the German researches of institute of Europe of RAS Vladislav Belov:vladislav Belov the head of the Center of the German researches of institute of Europe says RAS "Mister Weber is the chairman of this fraction. Manfred Weber though presents to CSU, it is the Bavarian party, he is close to Merkel, at least, concerning migration and need of account European components of the German migration policy. He was one of the few in CSU who has supported Angela Merkel and has told that it is necessary to consider the European interests of other states. But, in principle, probably, will amplify German a component, kind of Manfred Weber of positioned as the head of commission, independent from the point of view of Europe, naturally, the German interests will be presented to a large extent. From the point of view of Russia, I didn't notice for Mr. Weber of any anti-Russian statements. But if to extrapolate Weber to the coalition contract under which there is a signature of the chief of his party Mr. Zeekhofer then it is possible to assume gradual improvement of the relations with Russia, at least, in the context of a position of Germany. Germany states that if there are motions on "the Minsk process", it will make everything in order that the position of the EU and the countries entering him gradually changed. That not probably to a usual look of the Russian citizen, inhabitant — there is a gradual building relations at the level of European Commissioners and heads of the Russian departments, there is an obvious improvement on the basis of the bilateral relations. It seems to me that Weber would be a worthy candidate if it is necessary to spit out, fie-fie-fie, through the left shoulder because our comments shouldn't be perceived as intervention of Russia in the upcoming elections of the president of the European Commission". The chairman of the party of CSU whom Manfred Weber represents in European Parliament now Horst Zeekhofer, positions himself as "the friend of Moscow". The Bavarian Christian Social Union in general is skeptical about a subject of sanctions against Russia enough. However Zeekhofer is Zeekhofer, and Weber is Weber. Elections of the president of the European Commission will take place in May, 2019. Powers present — Jean-Claude Juncker — will expire on November 1, 2019. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
