Interesting statement of Chinese political expert: Russia should not integrate into Europe or Asia:

Sheng Shiliang , chief researcher with the Center for Global Challenges Studies, Xinhua News Agency, thinks that getting back on the European path is not the best choice, as Russia is too big and unique for Europe, which is half the size of Russia. Integration with Asia is an even worse alternative because there’s not enough room for Asians there as it is.
