    Right. What it should be about is why the EU is so anxious to add a corrupt, bankrupt, failed state to the its union.

      Or, let us ask, is the EU willing to pay enough to incorporate Ukraine? As I read somewhere, the poorer parts of any modern “empire” are retained by the richer parts subsidizing them. The richer parts often rate the increased size/power/prestige of the empire to be worth the costs.
