I spent a month travelling through Russia this summer. They are much better off then you think. Living expenses are so cheap you don't need to earn much to live. The people are cool. The country is beautiful. Very safe part of the world.
The USA has no divine right to world dominance so I'm glad it's waning. Now if only the Europeans United. Russia and the rest of Europe would be the ultimate world power.
I think Europe is gonna be an Islamic region before unity happens. But I hope I'm wrong and your right wing parties start getting some votes.
I'm trying to wrap my head around wanting to unify with Russia. I bet the people are nice and country is beautiful, their government though...
Either way, all the western should have some unity. But first, you guys need to actually put money in a military.
