A Nationalist Eastern Europe

In Bloomberg, Leonid Bershidsky has a column titled “A Nationalist Eastern Europe Could Reshape the EU”:

Post-Communist nations have taken two decades to decide what they are, and the decision is almost unanimous: They are countries based on strong national traditions and interests. The nationalisms may have different vectors — Poland is fiercely anti-Russian, Hungary and Slovakia are relatively pro-Russian — but they have more uniting features than differences. They are all about a decentralized Europe that is not particularly welcoming to outsiders.
