Not true. UKIP and other “extreme” Right-wing parties want to *strengthen* their countries not weaken them.

Putin is willing for Russia to become part of EU and even NATO, but US and NATO continue to play dangerous and provocative war games in Black Sea and on Russian border.

Ninety-three seconds after launch, the fourth stage burned out, hurling the rocket and its payload nearly straight up.

The rocket was spotted by Russian early-warning radars. The radar operators sent an alert to Moscow. Within minutes, President Boris Yeltsin was brought his black nuclear-command suitcase. For several tense minutes, while Yeltsin spoke with his defense minister by telephone, confusion reigned.
A decision to be made in under 10 minutes to end the world. Us versus them. As NATO now works to rattle its saber.
Remember the Doomsday clock with its hands frozen at 5 til Midnight. I wonder if they will move again closer.

Is there really any difference?
