The story about the chair that Ursula von der Leyen did not get at EU-Erdogan talks, does not seem to subside in the minds of European politicians and political scientists.
Der Leyen disrespected after Borrell
Amazing things have been happening to EU politicians lately. At first, Josep Borrell was “humiliated during his visit to Russia, and now, as it appears, a similar story happened to Charles Michel.
Josep Borrell, EU’s chief diplomat, was “forced” to speak positively about the Russian vaccine at the time when Moscow “demonstrated disrespect” and expelled EU diplomats from Russia. In the second episode, another EU official was “forced” to say positive words about a “reset in relations” against the background of an act of blatant gender inequality in relation to Ursula von der Leyen.
