The EU gears up for conflict with Russia: Upgrading roads and railways for military transportation

Europe Prepares for Potential War with Russia

Europe is gearing up for a conflict against Russia, a situation that unfortunately is no longer a mystery.
The latest confirmation of this somber prospect comes from Strasbourg, where the European Parliament, in its latest plenary session before the June European elections, has approved a series of measures.

Despite being a topic rarely discussed in mainstream media, the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) projects have been greenlighted by the European Parliament.
These projects are of significant importance, not only concerning potential conflicts with Russia.

The TEN-T Network

The European Parliament has signed off on a new regulation regarding the TEN-T network, which comprises various road and rail projects connecting different EU countries.
Projects such as the Messina Bridge, the Brenner Base Tunnel, and high-speed rail routes like Milan-Treviglio-Verona and Bologna-Ancona-Pescara-Foggia could benefit from the substantial funds allocated by Brussels.

These projects are expected to be completed by 2030 according to the new guidelines, a deadline that may be challenging to meet for ambitious endeavors like the Messina Bridge.

Strategic Implications

But what does all this have to do with a potential conflict with Russia? In addition to infrastructure projects, the parliamentarians have approved other measures related to the TEN-T: the cessation of any cooperation with Moscow, strengthened ties with Ukraine and Moldova, and specific regulations concerning military needs.

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine for over two years has highlighted the importance of efficient logistical networks for successful military operations.
The European leaders are considering the deployment of troops in Ukraine, emphasizing the necessity for an economy of war.

Logistical Considerations

The recent guidelines for the TEN-T include a provision that mandates the new projects to accommodate military transport needs for troops and equipment transfer seamlessly across European borders.

This strategic move underscores the urgency for European nations to be prepared for rapid military mobilization in times of crisis.
Instead of solely focusing on diplomatic solutions to existing conflicts, Europe seems to be hastening its readiness for a potential global conflict, including nuclear scenarios, a prospect that raises concerns for many except for European leaders.
