So even if Euro-Atlanticists have the pain in their hearts about the inevitable distance, the mind and they understand that the old role of the US in Europe has already been regained. Naturally, this will not be a fast or linear process. But the gradual «parting with America» is already recognized by Europeans as a historical inevitability.
