As to the OP. A Russia/EU union is a fantasy. Russia would never want to be incorporated in a union where they would be a minor player. Russia's economy is not that big - it's smaller than Italy's GDP for example.

I'm a bit rusty on EU politics, voting isn't so representative of population is it? But if it was Russia would still need people/nations to vote with it, without some major changes it would always be out voted.

It's a true possibility, with the European right on the rise and them turning towards Moscow...
This would reshape global politics, just imagine there would be an Union between those two powerhouses.
Poland is probably not happy about that, but if France goes right after Macron failing, it could happen.
That would destroy US hegemony for good.

Interesting, but the EU can barely seem to hold itself together as it is.
And I don't see Putin letting Brussels bureaucrats have any say in how he runs Russia.

Scores of EU bankers and financial institutions own the American federal reserve banking system.
I would be more concerned as to the influence the EU has over the US in some respects.
Need to remember that they did colonize the place.

We all know US is going to stab everyone in the back either through war or by puppeteer countries.
China has always been a neutral zone.
