So the EU hasn't been expanding its borders in recent years whilst Russia has LOST territory?
In 2003, there were just 15 Member States of the EU. Now there are 28 and the EU's increasing expansion eastwards right onto Russia's doorstep, and its attempts to annex Ukraine, is what has caused this conflict in Ukraine.
The weird thing is, if anyone tries to tell Britain's Left-wing Ruling Establishment politicians - those of the LibLabCon triumvirate - that it is the EU, not Russia, which is the expansionist power in Europe, looking to add ever more territory to its empire, whilst Russia has lost territory since 1991, they'll just look at you as though you've just told them you're a homosexual Martian who is a member of the Venusian branch of the Leyton Orient supporters club, just as happened on BBC's Question Time the other week.
"Oh no!" those politicians - who obviously know better than us ordinary people - told the gormless audience member (who probably supports Ukip, the little rascal). "Russia is the expansionist power in Europe! Look, it has taken Crimea and parts of eastern Ukraine! The EU is a force for good in this world! It, not Nato, as you rascally Ukippers believes, is responsible for bringing peace in Europe! Britain must remain in the EU!"
