Every century Europe has to have a war with Russia, otherwise the century is waisted with no fun!
1945, Berlin, Hitler, USSR won.
1812, Paris, Napoleon, Russian Imperium won.
1709, Poltava, Sweden (with half of the Europe) Karl XII, Russian Imperium won.
1600 century, the war agains Europe (Poland, Sweden, Baltikum) during the whole century. All neighbors wanted peice of land what name is Russia. Plus Russian-Turkish war in Vienne! Russia won.
1512-1522, Poland, Litauen against Russia, reunion with Smolensk land. Negotiation and peace.
Under the 1400 Noone really fight with Russian Imperium, but In Europe was full of war: France, England, Sweden, Danmark, Poland... Russia had civil war!
1300 the long war between Russian and Europe and Mongol chan. Russian won
1240-42, Pskov, Alexander Nevskij, Livonsk Order. Russian won.
What happens right now? Well, USA wants to get closer, really closer to Russians border and get there PRO! Gregor Gysi (Germany) said in his speech at 13.03.2014 that it is a bad IDEA to provoke Russia with NAZI regimen in Ukraine. Anybody hear Gregor? No! You want Nazi, you are going to get them, full size, huge price, don't tell me that you didn't know! If Nazi get into a power machine again there will be no winner (thanks to new technology).
It seems like it is true:
If Europe (in this case with association with USA) didn't fight Russia for a century, consider that is lost of time.
