I said persuaded, not forced.
To force something on another country is so "not West" so they do it another way.
they don't have a problem, like I said, because many countries don't have or don't think they have alternative to EU or NATO and why wouldn't they
like to join a "powerful club"?
it's very logical; USA, Western Europe is (still) strongest economically and in many other ways, of course countries that have opportunity want to
join together with them.
if Russia offer/will offer in the future a chance for citizens of any country to make a decent living, living a decent life without too much
restrictions I am sure the process will reverse.
maybe Crimea was just first.
economy is everything, people in Eastern Ukraine support revolt because many of them believe Russia can provide better life opportunities for them,
could it be that they are right?
