What do you mean with the European Hamas part?
I think all of west is open to have Russia join them.
The thing just is that Putin say "NATO moves close" and Russians on RT always trash talk especially people in Poland saying how they are whores to the Europeans.
And then there's the military spending, increases, exercises, "oups I lost my ... in your territory" and flat out denying everything though no-one believes that anyway.
Russia is a bully and try to scare people to like him ..
That obviously doesn't work very well.
You can't convince Finland that "Oh joining NATO would be bad for you and destabilize this region!" but at the same time joke about how Finland is next.
Or tell Estonia and Latvia that that there wouldn't be much left of their countries if a major conflict broke out in the area and then assume that they will be like "Great my Soviet over lord!
All of them want to join EU and NATO.
None of them seem to beg for joining the Soviet union.
I wonder why that is ..
Painful integration for whom? For Russia or Europe? Don't you mean for Russia?
But Russia isn't all that far from Europe anyway. Here in Sweden we import a crap-load of people from for instance Somalia and well.. A crap-load of Russians would be a major upgrade.
You're at least well educated and come from a real working country.
