Europeans are wealthier than Russians
Europeans live longer
Europe has better education
Europe has more press freedom
The quality of life in Europe is far higher than Russia (and we're talking massively higher)
Employment opportunities are greater in Europe than Russia, even through economic crisis
Alcoholism is lower in Europe than Russia
I could obviously go on.
If anyone here actually lived in Ukraine, or Russia, and knew the truth, they would have been out there on the streets of Kiev demanding a path to Europe too.

Moscow is polluted, chaotic and uniformly the color of weathered concrete. Maybe the aesthetic torture disturbs people?
That might be great for some. Didn't appeal to me. I didn't want to leave Red Square.
John Pilger is the kind of well-informed, hard-hitting journalist with gobs of integrity that no longer exists in the Western mainstream media. He has the most distinguished career of all in the business.
In the article below he brings stunning information to one of my own themes–the creation by Washington and its NATO vassals of an artificial reality consisting entirely of propaganda into which Washington has placed the entire Western world and all outside who inspire to be part of it. Westerners live in The Matrix, and the presstitutes keep them there. The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, and the TV channels perform as agents (as in the Matrix film) actively suppressing any glimmer of factual reality.
Western people have no comprehension of the real reasons for Washington’s murderous interventions in Yugoslavia, Middle East, Afghanistan, Libya, Ukraine, Indonesia, or Latin America. The most transparent lies are fed to people too ignorant to recognize the lies. The lies have cost huge numbers of deaths and injuries and are leading directly to war with Russia and China.

You tried to pull the same stunt not even a month ago...
...it didn`t work back then, and it won`t work now.
