The other EU

The Eurasian Union, commonly called Russia. Fine with me. Better than fine: a Russian empire, no longer Communist, again culturally Orthodox-based (not sanctimonious but easygoing in an ethnic cultural-Catholic way), as a counter-power to the US and Western Europe? Очень хорошо. (Kiev and the eastern Ukraine are Russian like Belarus; Lvov and the rest of the far western Ukraine – the Polish/Austrian Greek Catholic land the Soviets stole during WWII; the first Eastern Slavs I knew, 30 years ago, were from there – can go be its own western Eastern European country like Poland.)
