GodofThunder got the point there. Especially the Baltik states, Ukraine and Central Asian countries would gain nothing from joining up Russia.

The former Soviet States cannot be joined together because of Political Polarity and in terms of economics, the Marginal Cost exceeds the Marginal Benefit, hence they see no need to re-unite.

you`d have to be inhabitant of one of these former countries to understand that... IMO nothing good has ever come to Estonia from Russia.. or can someone name anything
and in that union, where Russia undoubtly would be the leading country, you can`t talk about democracy..
and having a larger military.. again in my opinion it isnīt a way to measure the life standards in a country

My question is, why can't they stay together as one country? For example, "Republic of Soviet Union."

I think that if former Soviet states stayed together after the fall of communism, they could have a much larger military, a higher population, larger resources, and more GDP. All of this while in a Democratic system.
Never, because Racial conflict can causes many developement "blocktage" in Politics,economics and everything.

Even Russian can't govern their own people well (remember they have good resouces). You still expect a further Union of the eastern Europe?

If you were an independent country until Stalin, after which you became a number in a tax roll, would your now independent Government want to be a servant or served? Most of the countries which formed the USSR had longer histories as free states than Russia. And having your young people conscripted into every war the USSR decided was in it's interest does not make a strong military. It makes a fractionalized one at best.
