Wonderful.

Getting Ukraine and Belarus back would put an enlarged Russia's population at 203+ million people, making it by far the largest European nation in terms of population.

It would also reduce corruption in Ukraine and Belarus and lead to greater prosperity thanks to free trade.

And most importantly, it would create an enormous Orthodox Christian homeland.

The only reason why I ask is because I own a bodyshop and do some work for quite a few Russians in my area just outside of Washington D.C. and almost all of them do not speak highly of Mr. Putin. I was wondering if there is any talk like this in Russia or is there still fear of the Government for saying such things
