Russia seems to be going backwards to more of a "USSR" type of democracy, can't really call it a democracy to be honest.
So the goal of establishing the Eurasian Union would be essentially to right a historical wrong and bring back a successful empire that existed even before the Soviet Union. Russia’s recent takeover of Crimea and further designs on Ukraine seem to be a logical part of such a plan
