I wanted to ask people's opinions on various countries in the post-Soviet space, and the likelihood they would join the EAU. So far, we know the following: 1) Kazakhstan, Belarus, Russia - founding members, will definitely be a part of EAU. 2) Baltic States - never in a million years. 3) Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan - they said they would join, and they likely will. Kyrgyzstan will join before Tajikistan due to its geographical proximity. Now there are some countries that I am more curious about. 1) Ukraine - Ukraine said they would join as an observer. Does anyone think there is a serious chance for Ukraine to become more than an observer, or is this final? I understand the Russian government is not too happy with this decision. If Ukraine I personally think it would be likely that Moldova joins as well. 2) Georgia - in my opinion it will not join unless it undertakes serious political change. Armenia probably would, but due to a lack of common borders with any EAU member, it probably will not, unless Georgia joins. I am not sure about Azerbaijan. 3) Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan would require serious political change before joining. The current leadership, especially in Turkmenistan, is trying to distance itself from Russia to maintain a greater degree of sovereignty. I am curious to hear what people think, especially about Georgia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
