From the first report linked.. pay attention to how eastern Europeans talk.
A pro-western Hungarian will point out that Catholic and Protestant Hungary can by no means be an “eastern” country and that Eastern Europe only begins once you cross into Orthodox Romania to its east.
A pro-western Romanian , will point to his Latin-based tongue and insist the east doesn’t begin in earnest until you’ve traversed his land and entered Slavic Ukraine.
A pro-western Ukrainian will then give you a list of ways in which his country differs from Russia to back up his view that true east doesn’t really begin until you’ve crossed the border between the two.
the pro-western Russian ... does not have the comfort of an even more Eastern European neighbor.
I also remember Georgian new prime minister interview by RT ,when asked why Georgia
wanted to join European economic bloc and not Russia economic block.. His answer was because they feel European ,because his culture.. because they feel this or that.. and he
even went in details of how their race is connected to Europeans.. etc.. etc etc..
All that repeats again and again.. no matter who you ask.. anyone seeking a better quality of life see Europe as their destiny. and will give you any excuse about that..Ukrainians go as far
as to rewrite History to justify they are Europeans not RUssians.
But the truth about all this what it is?
It has to do more things that no body talks ,and not even like to think . Why no body wants
to be closer to India? or China? Why Israel that is on middle east a middle east country does not participate in any sport competition in middle east? not even the ones hosted in ally countries like Saudi Arabia or Bahrain ..instead europeans competitions?...
The reason for 5th column in Russia had to do more with..
1) Material Things , Physical Luxury ,material comfort.
but also it had to do with salaries and money. Russia do have luxury.. but the middle and lower
class in Europe (that is Northern European nations) live overall in better infrastructure ,than the same people in Russia. and this is not mentioning the superior salaries too.
2)and to some other much smaller degree , Racism..
Racism is real , it didn't vanished. White People don't like to mix with blacks or browns or yellows. Is a fact that general white families.. who are white will prefer their family members
to marry with BLond/blue eyes white people and will prefer they not marry with Asians or blacks or browns. One of the common and valid reasons is they want their family members to look like them.
The only exception are Billionaires.. they have properties around the world. They feel citizens
of the world.. and the only reason they oppose Putin Patriotism.. is because they don't want
sanctions against their properties abroad or make very difficult for them to make money in
Europe.. So the only thing left to defend their money is either become patriotic and return to Russia.. or to fight putin to lift the sactions.. I think Kudrin that is not billionaire, for example is paid big money for becoming a 5th column rat and try to sabotage Putin.
Interestingly but ironically is that also Blacks ,Asians and Browns.. prefer whites for mixing.
and there is a major controversy of a common practice in the world of Blacks and Brown people
modifying their skin with products to look more white..

not only in Holywood
Asians girls want to look like European Womens and and spend a fortune to NOT look like they were made.. but like something else. This is why you see a lot in beauty context Nations like India send whiter girls to their context.
So now you have the most powerful reasons to join Europe.. not because of all the culture
crap they told you.. or because their "historical connection" or not even because "more freedoms" crap. that any Russian Liberal will tell you.. simply the real reason people look to
the west is because..
In order or relevance.
1)More money,better salaries ,and modern advanced cities is the norm across the entire
country ,there is poverty yes.. but a minority.. and more cities alive..ie.. more entertainment which is a consequence of more money that people have to spend. ie. (Northern Europe)
2)because they want to mix with European Whites .
Now comes the important point here.. Had US and Europe gone bankrupt its economy tomorrow
and all of them in the same state of Greece and major US and European economies collapse like Soviet Union.. US become
10 failed countries and Europe becomes chaos ,just like Africa or middle east. and Russia become a very prosperous nation.. and every city in Russia to be like Sochi or like MOscow and St Petersburg in infrastructure.. and everyone with very good salaries.. had Russia turn into the world greatest economy.. You will see those Euromaidans and Georgian maidans idiots saying how they are indeed Russians , that they were wrong.. and indeed they will join anything with Russia.. even return to become a Russian autonomous republic. This means that the greatest threat to US Empire and its World Hegemony plans..
is not Russian nukes , but a very Prosperous ,very wealthy Russia
Because that will
Influence Significantly Not only Ukrainians to return to their mother land and re-unite.. but worse .. it will lure away Europeans from the American orbit.
IF anyone comes to the conclusion that prosperity in a country ,is a very Powerful Influence ,
they will be right.. The interesting thing here is that Contrary to USA.. that that does not have
the other influence bonuses that Russia have.. ie.. Rich Culture ,Castles and all that Tzars glamour ,that few in Europe have..and that is a mostly white nation.. (i have heard countless times Europeans comments about that..as a positive thing). Then Effectively Russia will have all the things necessary to become an ULTRA SUPER Influential Power ,a true Super Independent Power.. if the become Rich. and totally completely Replace USA.. and turn it into another Regional Power as CAnada is. That is if Russia becomes the world major economy or something close.And this is why the Americans Policy Since WORLD WAR 2 , that they become a world super power is to contain Russia economy..
US achieved its world Economic super status...
1)by creating alliances with the most developed nations EU ,Japan ,Canada, (so that do not trade with Russia or very little) and by controlling the energy in middle east.. to control Energy Prices which Russia depends.
2)and with the help of Color revolutions and NATO no fly zones .
3)By supporting arming Terrorism.. ISIS/Alqaeda and any extremist they can use to fight Russia interest.
not less important ,it helped a lot americans being the only nation not invaded and destroyed.
to attract talent world wide to create their industrial revolution. like Einstein and Tesla to name a few.
IF for example the world long time ago ,phased out Oil and Gas as energy sources.. and everyone only used Solar energy and nuclear for 100% of their needs.. Then you will see
Americans leave the middle east forever. and probably Israel Gov leave it too.. and move to Europe. And no longer middle east will be important for US ..because it can no longer be used
to sabotage Russia business with Europe.
If anyone comes to the conclusion that 100% of US foreign policy is aimed at sabotaging
Russia economy ,to not allow Russia expand its influence to Ukraine ,baltics and Europe.
very essential countries to contain Russia. you will absolutely correct.
AMericans are in an economic competition war against Russia since world war 2 and what is new today is the level of desperation is far bigger, because their economy is more weaker today ,than a decade or two ago, with CHina surpassing them. and now new financial alliances forming like BRICS..
All the major conflicts in Middle east and Europe..all are created by American Government to
break alliances and create new ones ,neccesary to the containment of Russia . Because Americans cannot eliminate Russia through military force, What they do ? they attack any nation that is friendly to Russia and important to its business.
The Arab Spring.. only attacked nations that US could not control completely.. and/or had business with Russia. Russia is now moving to Asia its economy.. then what Americans do? Create the transpacific bullshit free trade to block Russia from there. but it doesn't end there.. US can also attack Assians economies in many ways..including their own allies to weaken their economies so Russia cannot benefit from moving to Asia. This can be done by signing free trade deals with Asia , but also
by attack on their tourism..Terrorism attack on Tourism industry.. this have the CIA name all over it. or mysterious plagues viruses that suddenly show up in X or Y nation, cannot be discounted either as a US job.
But all this things needs to be done carefully in a way that do not affect US economy..
Putin is making every day more difficult for Americans to isolate its economy. because Russia
trade with NATO and nations that US cannot touch for x or y reasons.. ie.. Israel ,Turkey or Saudi Arabia. The last one for example If Russia overthrows Saudis.. who is going to replace them? It will be destabilized nation and it will blow hard US dollar..is a major civil war start in
Saudi Arabia and No more oil sold there. Because their Oil is only sold in dollars.
So Putin is truly playing 3rd dimension chess with Americans.. Is making unthinkable business
deals ,that Americans cannot counter easily or not even touch at all.. like the new
Irkut MC-21 airliner..
Because the western export of it.. will use American Engines..
So if US CIA sabotage it..with toothpaste bomb media bullshit or real terror attack, it will damage their own companies..
And it doesn't make things easier either to sabotage it ..if Israel participates in the project as they will do making the electronics. But interestingly enough. the domestic version of the plane
will use only Russian Technology.. so also Russia domestic use cannot be sanctioned by the west..
IN summary i explained ,what i believe the cause of 5th column to exist.. they are materialistic people..
that looks to the west for what they believe a better life.. and the best way to counter it.. is by Russia becoming a very prosperous ,modern nation with very wealthy economy and modern infrastructure across most Russia .
Is an Irony that the 5th column in Russia fight their own nation policies that will allow Russia to be the very same Thing they want from the west. that is a better quality of life.. The reasons for their treason ,had to be their lack of faith on their own nation.. and their own capabilities to become the same modern ,prosperous ,advanced nation they want to be..so they instead wants to surrender to the west ,to become that..by trading their nation independence and sovereignty.
The day US economy collapse.. and experience their own soviet union like split..and become poor nation.. You will see Europe moving towards Russia and all the 5th column parties will cease to exist. and they all will be "patriotic again". The Average 5th column is people that wants instant results ,and lack of any faith on themselves and their own country
to become a Prosperous modern Nation without depending in the west.
It will be similar to the Europeans when they discover America.. when the natives saw them
taught they were so superior.. and gave their gold many times in change for silly things that
European technology could produce and they not. and even gave their nation sovereignty in
change for European technology. And the Latin Americans took centuries later them to see that
they were equals and not inferior to Europeans.and that they could get their own technology too..they could be "Europeans " too.. in terms of technology and create infrastructure too and comfort and roads,just like Europeans, without giving away their nation independence and sovereignty and power.
So people always remember.. that when anyone of the 5th column tells you, they want
a better quality of life of the west ,an "European life style". In reality what they telling is
they want prosperity that the average europeans have and the modern infrastructure that the average European enjoy . and probably a minority of the 5th column also have racism issues too.. Russia do have high quality modern infrastructure in most of Moscow and St Peterburg and other few cities ,but most of Russia is highly undeveloped using infrastructure of early soviet times.
