Europe: 1984 vs 2014

In thinking about Ukraine, I decided to compare Europe in 1984 and 2014. Cold War vs. Post-Cold War. Using a rough mapmaking program, with maps with 2014 borders, I approximated EU/NATO/pro-US (BLUE) and USSR/Russia + allies (RED).

One straightforward conclusion: BLUE has swept east.
