    What OTL events would be considered ASB if they hadn't actually occurred?

    Average Russian learned Putin's name when he became FSB director and he is not the first Russian PM who had been FSB director until premiership. Putin's predecessor Stepashin also was FSB director

    What OTL events would be considered ASB if they hadn't actually occurred?

    Putin was the President's Administration Chairman's deputy and FSB director until he became the PM and had Berezovsky's media machine for propaganda during premiership and presidential campaign.

    Like the Golf stream prevented glaciation in the Pleistocene Scandinavia? Japan would iced firstly during warmer glaciation episodes and it will be a ice bag for Manchuria and China

    During interglacials like Holocene? There is no continental ice sheets during interglacials. But there is near 33 million km2 of ice sheets during coldest glacial episodes

    HW Bush second term foreign policy?

    Ukrainian industries were even more important. Central Asia excluding Kazakhstan was less important for the "Eurasian Union" but it was came up in the set with the Soviet/Eurasian Union/USS/Great Russia until 1991. I can see the Soviet/Eurasian Union even without Ukraine but it would be very...

    NATO expansion wouldn't happened during Bush41 presidency but it will return to the menu under POTUS#42. The main Russian problem is not the NATO expansion. They think that Russia us a superpower like the US or the PRC but Russia can't be a superpower after Ukrainian independence. Even...

    Persians hold the Arabs back at the Zagros: what happens to the Umayyads?

    In the EU, in parallel with the euro, the creation of the currencies of the Euroregions is permitted

    And? Strictly speaking, everywhere the M2 money supply majority is created by private banks, it doesn't matter whether we are talking about dollars, hryvnias or rupees. The bottom line is that the Hong Kong dollar emission is controlled by the government institution. If only that were the case...

    In the EU, in parallel with the euro, the creation of the currencies of the Euroregions is permitted

    Historically, such regional money existed because the central government couldn't mint money from one center and local markets were fairly isolated from each other. Due to the growth of transport connectivity, we have come to the one currency per country standard. An analogue of regional...

    WI India never liberalizes license raj

    *Happy Pakistani noises* This is a quick way to lose the next election to the delight of the INC. India is not isolated enough to get away with this and, given the Pakistani enemies, the military-industrial complex and related industries are more useful than caste traditionalism games
