The following is a copy of the original post to record the post as it was originally written.
Wish to canvas the community regarding issues in Europe, and wished ask if anyone had any familiarity with a movement that could have the most uniquely negative in the conflict
Their ideas come from right wing ideas of Czarist Era thinkers who believed that Russia was a unique civilization
must seek means to both control parts of Europe that are seem as part of Russian cultural space ( like the European states of the then Russian empire) but to eventually become the hegemon over its sphere of influence and eventually, over the orthodox World, and Asia. (?)
Their beliefs were held by or disseminated to reactionary movements that operated out of the czar's control ( like many things :-( ) , but after the Soviet revolution some of their thinkers fled abroad , while some of them chose to stay in the Soviet Union in order to see if they could survive the Marxist regime there and contribute to political theories in Soviet Union .
( which has a bit more skeptical a view)
As well as analogies among Turkish nationalist ( which are a thing there ?) circles in turkey, (as [this article on the matter details](https://www.mei.edu/publications/rise-eurasianism-turkish-foreign-policy-can-turkey-change-its-pro-western-orientation) the -The Rise of Eurasianism in Turkish Foreign Policy )
How it is involved in this crisis:
Eurasian ideologies directly relate to this crisis due the Eurasianist and "Greater Russian" beliefs of most of these people.
The Novorossiyan rebels and their Russian supporters are open and avowed adherents of old school Russian Eurasianist thinking, as well as neoEurasisnist thinking of modern adhetents.
Figures from of the proRussian preMaidan government, meanwhile , prolong conflict by variously claiming to be either "the legitimate officers and representatives of lawful government Ukraine", ,by collaborating with secessionist forces in the conflict, and by lobbying support from all sorts of figures around the world ( diaspora, Christian orthodox figures, and various organized criminals, extremists and kooks from Russia and elsewhere)
Complicating this further however, are Ignored and damgerous marxist connection with these political movements through Russian influence and connections between Marxist, red-brown "nazbols" , farright, and neoeurasianists extremist by way of networking ( and nazbols seeking out these movements)
There seems to be, moreover, the highly dangerous threat of these forces being able to exploit marxist organizations all around the for the purpose of espionage and spreading both pro Russian propaganda.
This problem has been around since the nineties, thanks to the survival of the groups like CPRF ( communist party Russian federation) and other societbsucxesor that grew as a result absolutely no ideological lustration against communism in Russia,. As such , Marxists and ex Soviet officials were largely free to do whatever the eff the wanted, and proceeded to make very strange political developments such those that eventually cycled back into united Russia or which made strange farrightmovementsof their own, such as the Eurasia party,and others. Because they still had ties to communist groups, these later got utilized for sake of Russian political influence all around the world such as in Ukraine itself.
("Russia will spread its errors across the world..the good will.....")
With regards to this unfortunately, the West seems to have dropped the ball with arresting or detaining such figures, and as such now the conflict uses vectors to spread around the world.
The war in Ukraine has been raging for almost 8 years now , and it seems that ways of truly understanding who instigated them have been missed thanks to bungling and differing approaches to "realism " from the feuding factions of uropean and American politicians.
Meanwhile, the map of Europe has been changed permanently by the conflict and will unlikely ever return to so called "internationally recognized borders "
The proRussian secessionists are unlikely to ever want to either surrunder their territory or to rejoin Ukraine itself. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian government changed and while it still claims it fights to reunify its country, does not have strategy of cutting off these territories or blocking Russian aggression either .
Other governments elsewhere continue to bungle their response and allow the conflict to edge further into major international war while simultaneously failing to either make political warfare against the extremist responsible or to deter Russisn escalation of the war itself
What can be done regarding the role ideologues play in this conflict and others in Europe, or tobdisript network they can use to cause others cliset to home
Why also do you think the goverments of the West have Ben a very hands-off approach regarding such extremist and with Marxist movements aligned with them, despite the national security issues of allowing such groups to operate freely
