I'd like to see Europe get friendlier with the Russians, and move away from the EU, and USA. The Russians aren't going to dictate social policy, it's not part of their M.O. I think all the Russians really want at this point is money, and to regain some of their former power. They have natural resources that Europe could use, such as oil and gas, and Europe produces goods that Russians will buy.
A smaller European country wouldn't be able to assert itself in a Nationalist manner without allying with powers who're opposed to the ones seeking to oppress them.
