I FULLY agree with Paul Bowes’ letter of March 15 concerning the EU doing what Germany could not achieve in the Second World War.

Germany is not only doing what Paul Bowes said; it is also putting its tentacles into Eastern Europe, an ambition they failed to do in the war, and the present troubles in the Ukraine are in some part due to the EU trying to extend its influence even further.
