Crow, look back at Soviet/Russian history.
its different now. Don`t you see?
when i looking back in history i see that balance inside of Slavic world disappeared with Turkish invasion on Europe and occupation of Balkan. After that power of Poland began to drop and Islamo-Germany penetration deeper into Slavic world forced Russia to enter in `strange` schemes with hostile non-Slavic Germany.
Time has changed. Slavic Balkan isn`t under Turkish occupation anymore and no matter all odds, pro-Polish element (Serbia/Serb. Rep. within Bosnia) on Balkan strengthen.
In new situation, Russia is forced to reconfigure its approach to Slavic world in general. Both- Russia and Poland sees their clear interests in strengthening of Slavic Balkan. On the other side, Slavic Balkan (Serbians) has its specific interests that tend to restore old wealth flow on the Balkan-Baltic line, where are Warsaw and Belgrade in the middle of it.
It is also of significant importance how Vatican analyze development. In my opinion, Vatican must conclude that Poland represent more reliable `defender` of specific Vatican`s interests in the region (on Balkan/Balkan-Baltic line in general) then it is traditional major Vatican`s player- Germany. Once when Vatican switch its `total` support from Germany to Poland, we would have Catholic-Orthodox compromise on Balkan and in entire Europe. Ultimately, we would have reunion of Christianity. This situation would greatly stimulate increased safety and progress of Slavic world in general.
