The results of the Europe’s electorates indicated their displeasure in the manner in which the European Union was working. At the same time, the Ukraine populace confirmed their desire to be part of the European Union.

This was a brave test especially in international authority as well as the rule of law, intended to replace patriotism and use of force.
According to Soros, this turned out to be something different. The euro crisis, for instance, has turned the union fundamentally to a relationship of creditors and debtors. This situation has made the creditor nations to execute conditions to debtor nations, an aspect that has enhanced dominion over different nations. As a result of the low participation in the European parliamentary elections, it is evident that many citizens are not comfortable with the way things stand.
As the situation in international governance in Europe continues to get out of hand, Soros asserts that Russia is emerging as a paramount competitor to the European Union, which has international geopolitical determinations as well as prepared to apply force. President Putin is keen on making use of ethnic national philosophy and the backing from the Orthodox church to augment his administration.
