There is ALWAYS common ground. Only brainwashed people with black and white vision can't see it. Take Hungary for instance, who are also neighbors to Ukraine. They don't have anything to fear from Russia. And why is that? Well thought out diplomacy and good relations, not just one-sided barking at Russia, hoping that NATO will save them when things get tough. Same goes for direct neighbours to Russia, like Finland, the Baltics, Kazakhstan and the list goes on. Georgia dropped the ball back in 2008, trying to occupy the Gori tunnel and invite in UN peacekeepers, so they could gain control over the northern Ossetia region. Well, they failed and after the sensationalism in the news faded, everyone just forgot about it and didn't want to talk about it, because they knew that Georgia was the one who failed in this situation. Then Saakashvili was made a hero in the press just like currently Zelinsky is made out to be. But now, he is imprisoned in Georgia.
Drink less of the Kool-Aid that is fed to you by the news. Russia is not good, nor bad, but just another country protecting it's interests.
