The EU army isn't about standing up to Russia. What will happen is, each member state's armed forces will be incorporated into the EU army and German troops will be in say, Spain, while Spanish will be in France, French in Italy etc.
This is to prevent a popular uprising in any one state against the EU.
Its a way of stripping a country's ability to leave the EU ever.
