"What is also striking about recent findings is that pro-Russian sympathies are not merely emerging in the countries of southeast Europe - Orthodox Christian and traditionally more sympathetic to Russia, including non-EU Serbia - but in the historically Catholic West Slavic countries as well, like the Czech Republic and Slovakia. And perhaps Croatia, with Croatian president, Zoran Milanović, having previously criticised Western nations for supplying Ukraine. That is before we get to nearby Hungary."

"It is worth remembering that a cultural Iron Curtain very much divides the EU and Europe between a liberal West and a conservative East. Hard as it may seem to accept in the West, for many in Central and Eastern Europe, Moscow represents a bulwark against what many see as a Godless and permissive Western world. For good or ill, this is likely informing attitudes towards the war."

Huh, who'd have thought it,

The problem that Russia has is that they're Russians. That's China's problem too. America is a recent arrival.

LL, I'd feel a whole lot more confident if the US were the world's manufacturing superpower. As it is, we're doing well on debt and open borders, does that count as GDP?
