Eastern European opposition to Soviet rule during the Cold War

Eastern Europe...
Among other things, East European opposition to Soviet rule during the Cold War proves that they were not happy then.
I noticed that the Eastern Europeans were never happy, even now, once in the European Union, they criticize this Union most harshly (although they receive subsidies from it).

If you look in more detail, then the peoples of Eastern Europe have always and without interruption criticized any attempts to somehow integrate them into larger spaces:
first, the object of this criticism was three conservative empires (German, Austro-Hungarian and Russian),
then “two totalitarian regimes” (Third German Reich and the USSR),
then the "Soviet occupation",
now here is the "dominance of the European bureaucrats."
This constant criticism only means that in a substantial respect any East European claims can be safely ignored as white noise.

The very same Czechs and Poles secretly and openly dream that they themselves will become a large empire and will integrate someone else into the space of their own.
And with nostalgia recall those times when they had attempts to do so.

One of the most touching and unchanging news genres from Eastern Europe is reports that in some country, after a difficult struggle, a new government of young technocrats with a Western education finally came to power, and now people will live there, now everything is there will get better.

Here, for example, such news from Macedonia. The new prime minister is 35 years old, a financier, studied in London. Foreign Minister - 29 years old, graduated from Bonn University, fluent in English and German. Home Secretary - Female, 30, University of Kent in Britain.

Representatives of civil society, the heads of non commercial organizations, got to high posts (such as the Minister of Defense). The new Minister of European Integration is a lady from the Macedonian branch of Transparency International.

A US citizen (ethnic Macedonian) will become a special minister for attracting foreign investment. And the Minister of Information is the person who worked in the USA at Microsoft.
Is it possible to imagine greater happiness? With such a fabulous government, they will live better in this Macedonia, than in Singapore.

One trouble is, the news from 2006. This is the government of the very same Gruevsky, whom everyone now curses in Macedonia and the West. It’s against him that people have been protesting for almost two years in Skopje. This government of his was drowned in theft and corruption, in the persecution of the opposition, rigged elections and the destruction of independent media.

Chinese medium-range missiles are located in China and do not pose a threat to the United States, in any case, if the United States does not bring its ships too close, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.
Very logical and very anti-democratic.

"Turkey explained to Europe the advantage of Russian gas over American."
US LNG ( Liquefied natural gas) is not only an expensive, but also an unreliable resource. Everyone knows how America relates to its international obligations, and it is extremely imprudent to base its economy on American energy resources .

"Tulsi Gabbard accused Trump of capturing the oil of the Syrian people."

Bill Gates on a wealth tax:
"I've paid over $ 10 billion in taxes. I've paid more than anyone in taxes. If I had to pay $ 20 billion, it's fine."
"But when you say I should pay $ 100 billion, then I'm starting to do a little math over what I have left over."

He would have over $6 billion left over, which is about what the average American would earn if they worked for 95,000 years

The king of the poorest African country of Swaziland (or Esvatini), Mswati III, bought 19 Rolls Royce cars for his 15 wives and a custom-made Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV for himself. In this kingdom, where 1.3 million people live, two-thirds are below the poverty line and one in four is infected with HIV (world anti-record).

November 9, the world celebrates the 30th anniversary of the collapse of one of the main symbols of the Cold War - the Berlin Wall.
In April 2002, a fragment of the Berlin Wall was presented to the UN as a symbol of the hope that all barriers between people could be destroyed.
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the linear mileage of such structures on the planet has increased tenfold. Starting from Palestine, through the Balkans to Mexico.
Also, looks loke the Baltic states now have no better place to put the building materials.
