It sounds that he just has a bunch of terrorist at his borders and he doesn't want to be hampered by a bunch of weak suicidal Europeans. I'd roll up the red carpet too and arm myself to the teeth if I had the border issues and internal conflicts of Russia.

They have always been a paranoid imperialist state irregardless what form of government they had. In many ways they have that right(Golden Horde, Napoleon and Hitler). For whatever reason Russia cannot feel secure unless it can have a strong influence over its neighbors. But I don't think they can maintain their attempt to revive an Empire. Mr. Woosley is correct in my opinion on this. Russia is to sick on the inside to build a solid foundation in which to rebuild an Empire. Any attempt will mostly likely fail.
