So Europe needs to be asking itself whether they want to be the new Belgium or the new Germany or the new Switzerland.
Russia is in Europe, too.

There are many good, not so good, not so bad and bad examples.

CZ got split despite there not being many pressing reasons, still worked out ok. I think the split was mainly religious vs non religious life style. Belgian friction in my experience stems from religious split? Ireland/UK also touches on the religious note. CH is smooth as it gets since the religion doesn't seem to split people. So Europe should pick whatever splits the least, imho.
