Here's an opinion poll. The reality is quite different from what you think.

Poor Ukraine. It's just a choice of tyrannies.

Hi Copinacus:

I take a back seat to no one in my dislike of the European Union. I have termed it a "warm and fuzzy Soviet Union".

Nevertheless there is an order of magnitude difference between the EU and Putin's neo-Soviet kleptocracy. When its all said and done, the EU represents Western values (however imperfectly) and the pint-sized KGB goon doesn't. Those 'warm and fuzzy' aspects can be very important when you are faced with the choice they face.

Copinacus

Sorry my friend. The EU does NOT represent Western Values. Russia May want to possess Ukraine's wheat, but the EU will want to possess it's soul.
