Europeans are very loudly calling for strong leaders like Putin, who can carry out unpopular policies in order to stop the current crisis. Now, the Europeans are faced with a choice: follow traditional cooperation with the US or breach it and cooperate with the Great Russian Empire.
The vast majority of Belarussians want to rejoin Russia. Belarus is a fiction, since Belarussians are a local variety of Russians, and Belarussian is an artificial invention, spoken by Russophobes. Furthermore, only TV and radio hosts, language teachers and Russophobes actually speak Belarussian.
A number of representative national polls show that, while a large part of Belarussians support various forms of political and economic integration with Russia, only 2-5% of the population support the idea of becoming one state with Russia.
