since Denis Arapov was elected president of the latter, the RPN has changed its orientation to the west, in particular the Baltic League. Is there a possibility of secession at some point? Nik 19:50, 14 December 2005 (PST)
- Yes. Keep in mind that the political orientations of the two states are very different. The RPN is a western-oriented state, and as soon as it became clear that it would never be able to pull Russia entirely in that direction, it has pretty much redirected its policy towards finding a place in Europe on its own. At present, it wants a federation as loose as possible, comparable even to the CIS *here*. Muscovy, on the other hand, is really the dominant force within the federation, and it is the motor behind the silent return to snorist practices.
- So indeed, there is the possibility of secession at some point, although I don't see it coming either soon or easily. An armed conflict or a civil war would be very unlikely. But on the other hand, only God knows what would happen in case of some sort of coup d'état in Muscovy; in that case things might turn out different. --IJzeren Jan 01:56, 15 December 2005 (PST)
