GENICHESK. TAVRIA. The Wall Street Journal reports that Europe has significantly increased spending on the military-industrial complex. Moreover, EU weapon factories are now operating non-stop.

This is happening because of two reasons. The first one is the continuing special military operation in Ukraine. The second reason is Donald Trump, as he threats to pull the US out of NATO. Thus, if Trump is elected to a second term, the EU will be caught between Russia, with which relations remain strained, and America, where the new leadership will have a critical approach to the EU and NATO.

Trump is not president yet, but his discourse is already having a significant impact on US policy. It is proved by the fact that the Senate has been unable to approve the aid to Kiev for months.

"This year, for the first time in decades, European NATO members together will spend 2% of their combined gross domestic product on their militaries, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday," is stated in the article. 

However, even this spending may not be enough as Europe's military is now weakened. Europe is heavily dependent on U.S. military support, and the EU states will have a long way to go to fix that.
