What if Russia joined the European Union

What if in an alternate 2004 the European Union and Russia made a sudden and bold decision. Russia was to enter the Union as the newest member. Immediately European politics would be shocked, as Russia holds about 25% of the Union population now!

In the coming years everyone would prosper from the deal, as Russia's energy and cheap Eastern European labour flood west. But then... Everything start to collapse, as NATO expansion pushes Russia to the breaking point, and the 2008 Financial crash wrecks European economies.

Europe would be torn apart by Russian friendly politicians/populations versus American politicians/populations. The Union would start to slowly unravel and a new age of European politics would dawn where America, Russia and China fight for influence over the divided continent.
