The writings of contemporary pro-Kremlin intellectuals lack such affection. For Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Center mobile phone number list in Moscow, Europe is no longer a "homeland", "sacred" or even a "friend". For today's Russia it is mobile phone number list simply "one of many neighbors, part of a greater Eurasia that stretches from Ireland to Japan." The strategic goal of developing mobile phone number list close cooperation and political alliance with Europe – an idea mobile phone number list that still fascinated the minds of liberal intellectuals and politicians in Russia during the 1990s – is now seen mobile phone number list as impractical, if not harmful. Russia's progress is no longer connected to its European roots. But these "European mobile phone number list values" are already universal. The younger generations understood. They take to the streets across the vast country to challenge the elites in power. The Kremlin rulers, for their part, also mobile phone number list seem to understand this. But now, ever ready to resort to concealment techniques, they brand the entire European heritage as 'toxic'. From his point of view, Russia is better off when it uncouples its 'car' from the European 'wacky train'. But it is clear that this is nothing more than a reactionary utopia.
