FB Conversation about EU, Russia & cultural destruction

Michal
Oh yeah the EU is so wonderful. You can do what ever you want as long as Brussels approves. Free travel to destroy the cultural identity of the entire continent. All these new EU members really want is some security and economic prosperity, but it comes at a price. See the trends of increasing public and private debt and decreasing religiousness as the east is “westernised”. This is not happening by chance.

Paul Michal, in Soviet Union there was also free travel that destroyed cultural identity (or at least tried) – free travel to Siberia (my father got the ticket) or to steppes (for Crimean Tatars).

We, people of the borderlands, need to make practical choices. And even if we loose our national identity it is way better to loose it in EU than in (Soviet) Russia…

Roman I would say that burning Ukrainian language books and stabbing to death pro-Ukrainian protesters is a little more serious destruction of cultural identity. Both things happened last week in Ukraine. There has been no analogous violence toward Russians.

    ” KGB spy bad talking USA and gloryfing russia, but living in the USA.

    Many problems in the US but here you can talk about it, tons of pathology in russia and no freedoom of speach, no free press, and western idiots listen to this crap and say I’m with russia.”

      Unfortunately, USA Watchdog, the channel that interviewed Uri Orlov has been diligently erasing negative comments. They erased quite a few of mine.

    People in Ukraine have the freedom to speak Russian.

    But in Russia, they don’t have any freedom to speak.
