A pre-1770 Europe, isn’t it? A staggering resemblance. There it goes, the whole “Baltic-Black Sea Union” dream (a joke – both the “dream” and my reference to it). Still, joke or not, check the history of the Poland partitions that started in 1772.
The red colour here is so bloody perfect a match to what will happen one day when 1772 is upon us again. If someone’s to bleed in Europe any time, being once again victimised and squashed, it’s so obviously the staunch obscurantists in the East with the ignorant Latvia unproudly among them.
This is what you pay for being staunchly ignorant and obscurantist – you become an easy victim. And this is stupid.
