Russia and Belarus to create joint parliament and government -

Overly Serious

kiwifarms.net
Doesn't Russia have a bit of its country inside Belarus anyway, or am I thinking of another? I remember it being pretty funny that inside one of these countries there's a bit entirely cut out with no land border to the rest of Russia that belongs to it.

EDIT: My mistake - it's in between Poland and Lithuania. If Belarus joins Russia then the separate parts of the country are starting to slowly form back up like the T-1000 flowing together again.

On one hand, Russia is corrupt as feck, so not exactly good.

On the other hand, Belarus is a shit hole, so good for the average person, more options to escape a shitty situation with an even shittier government.

Belarus and Russia have talked about unifying since about 2002 or so. Who wants to bet this is just western media overreacting for the normies so they can have more bullshit to spin as "orange man bad russian asset"?

Speaking from a Brit side, ain't seen anything on the BBC or the usual news sources, unless it's mainland Europe getting their knickers in a twist, could just be the American pundits talking up mean ol' Russia again.

If we're going to get pedantic, that's Moscow-ify. Since up until the 1500s or so most of these regions were independent principalities and city states anyways. Then Ivan the terrible does his little conqueror schtick and we end up with weird shit like Russ/Moscowification of various places like Belorus (or the Novgorod republic).
The real big brain move is realizing all these disputes over Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia are the scars of the multi-century wars between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (And Lithuania before that) and Muscovy for who would control the legacy of the Kievan RUS.
