Eurasian Union: Greater than EU, but not new USSR

Quote:Three former Soviet republics have launched a new regional integration project, with at least two others on track to join in. Critics accuse Moscow of rebuilding the USSR, but architects of project say the aim is to become a better version of the EU.

The idea of the Eurasian Union – initially between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan – made the headlines in October this year, after Vladimir Putin voiced it in a program article. The name may be new, but the future entity behind it is quite old. Nursultan Nazarbayev, the current leader of Kazakhstan, suggested it as long ago as the early 1990s, saying a Union of the three countries plus Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan is necessary for them all. At the time, the notion of reconnecting the newly-separated parts of the former Soviet Union was questionable at best, but a decade-and-a-half later it is high on the agenda.

It is no surprise that many commentators, both in the west and on home ground are cautious about the project. For instance, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili was quick to brand it “a new Soviet Union”. Critics say that Putin wants to dedicate his almost-assured presidential term – or two – to reviving the socialist empire. A closer look, however, shows that this is unlikely...http://rt.com/news/eurasian-union-eu-better-667/

Russia doesn't bother me half as much as this war without end on individual's civil liberties and muzzies. This shït has to cease.

It not something that concerns me greatly. A balancing of power in the world is a good thing, but a concentration of it, not so much. Global - Regional centres of power that counter act the might of another through co - operation rather than war, would be a good but unrealistic.
This move signals to me, another piece of the globalist jigsaw puzzle is coming together.
