An alarmingly high fraction of the vote is expected to go to right-wing extremists hostile to the very values that made the election possible. Put it this way: Some of the biggest winners in Europe’s election will probably be people taking Vladimir Putin’s side in the Ukraine crisis.
The real "left" is generally in support of Putin's anti-NATO imperialism and sides with those in Ukraine opposed to the current Kiev regime, with its high concentration of extreme right-wingers and neo-Nazis.
Putin would have gladly become more integrated with Europe had Zionists/neocons not sabotaged the works by trying to own Russia.
