What's Going on in the Americas?
There are a number of threads from the Old World, any news from the New? Anything American goes.

Russia in the EU [...] has never seriously been proposed.
Not seriously proposed? Visa freedom with Russia was dead seriously proposed and it was seen as a step towards membership or at least "integration" for Russia. Dependence on Russia's oil and gas is not decreasing even now when we supposedly have sanctions imposed on Russia. The second gas tube in the bottom of the Baltic Sea is already in progress. If this is not serious, then what is?

I thought the EU isn't going on in the Americas yet.

Your neighbour French Guiana is in the EU, among others.



Russia is too big in all of population, area and issues to become an EU member. Something Turkey-sized or Ukraine-sized is within the realm of possibility, Russia not. Association treaties might be possible, but not membership.

I still think other threads are better suited for discussing the European Union.  :irked:

It was my submerged point too (but feel free to discuss French Guiana).

So it's just a matter of size for you. Brazil would be too big, but Venezuela is within the realm of possibility? What exactly do you have against Barulheira?

Playing the pedant poster, I implore you all to discuss Trump (or America) in another thread.

My dear Lampião, you're right. I suggest all threads to be deleted and to restart the forum again with new threads.
Now on with thematic order and discipline.

What's happening in Brasil is so much more important for the world than all Trump's stupidity.

As the rest of the world, not even myself understands very well what's hapenning.
A matter of attitude.

Venezuela has become a joke of a country due to the idiot who is President and trying to bodyswerve the parliament.
