Putin's Eurasian Union plan

Just noticed this. http://digitaljournal.com/article/335074

Quote:
In early October 2011, then Prime Minister Putin revealed Russia’s intention to create Eurasian Union, a new inter-governmental economic and political organization, based on the European Union (EU) integration model.
The Eurasian Union, which is to be established in 2015, would comprise many of the former Soviet member states, including Belarus, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Moldova. While the project may start with this particular set of countries, Russia does not intend to place any geographical restrictions on membership.

Worse. The nations wouldn't receive any of the benefits they got from being part of the SU while being exploited by Russia. More like Russia pre 1917.

More like institutionalized bullying on the part of Russia. They are starting to be tired to always have to play cat and mouse to retain influence in these republics.

I am all for unions but i dont know about this. I smell corruption and Russia gaining more power. Dont like it. Russia should not try to be diffrent from the rest of the west, nothing good will come out of it in the end.

It is Russia gaining more power. But it's rather hypocrite of us to claim that "Russia shouldn't try to become more powerful" when the West has the exact same behaviour.

What's good for us is good for them. They see us as a potentiAl threat to their national security, and act reactively.

Doesn't make the act right, but I won't condemn the motivation. Just the action.
