Just looking at the map there, Russia is incredibly big, it makes it look like any Slavic union would be 'those little countries' joining Mother Russia.
The Slavic Union (Russian: Славянский союз) (SS) is a Russian far right national socialistic movement, which aims at the creation of Russian national state. The Slavic Union is the most active ultranationalist political association in Russia.
The group's website, in Russian, links to extensive material on Holocaust denial and to works by Adolf Hitler. Its organizational logo is a stylized swastika and the group's initials, "SS" in Russian, are the same as those used by the German Schutzstaffel and its secret intelligence service, the Gestapo (Geheime Stadtpolizei, Secret Policeforce), during World War II.
The Slavic Union was banned by the Moscow City Court on April 27, 2010 following charges by prosecutors that the group promoted a national supremacist ideology similar to that of Nazi Germany.
I think an economic Slavic Union based on business would be beneficial but not an ethnic one.
the world where people from different
countries speak only English to one another and, frankly, it makes me sick.
There is an irony in this from you, you are on an English language forum at gun point then, are you? I hope at least you have a bucket beside you at all times :)
There is such risk.
There must be many organisations in the U.S. for example, where people of Slavic countries come together to show off traditional dance, eat traditional foods (I see Slavic countries have many similar dishes) and other such none intrusive or dominant collaborations, this is a start rather than jump in to a complete Union.
Although last time I was with a group of Russians and a Pole, it seemed to me that the Russians spent the greater part of the night telling the Pole (who didn't care) how great Russia was, even though there were people from five other nations.
It struck me as insecure but of course I won't judge a whole country on a few people over the course of one night.
