This year may prove to be one of the most important for the future of the EU and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the prospect is not encouraging. This writes Der Spiegel.

“Germany and its chancellor Angela Merkel, facing the biggest challenge after the collapse of the Eastern bloc”, – quotes RIA Novosti article.

As noted, the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker said that the long list of unsolved problems add new, and warned of a “crisis of confidence” in Europe. Relations within the EU is increasingly aggravated by the influx of refugees.

Other countries, including France and Italy, made it clear that the migratory crisis – this is a problem in Germany, says the author.

In addition, there is the question of Turkey, which, according to the EU, should play a key role in reducing the number of refugees. To do this, Ankara should receive EU € 3 billion, but the decision met with protests in Italy. Vice-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, he did not rule out that in the extreme case of Berlin will have to deal with the problem on their own.

The fate of the Schengen area and the euro.

The German government prevails “more disheartening than optimism,” is reflected in the article. There are fears that a further influx of refugees would lead to the restoration of the permanent control of the borders of the EU. If in the near future will ensure a reliable control of the external borders of the block, barriers like dominoes will fall anywhere from the south to the north.”
According to Der Spiegel, in this case, will have to bury the Schengen system, and with it, perhaps, Europe and other achievements. Thus, according to Juncker, without Schengen makes no sense and the euro.
