When Eastern European countries got their independence in the 90s from the Soviet Union Empire, ALL those countries without exception achieved 100% literacy rate, thousands of well trained engineers, doctors, many universities, etc. and lot of housing, transportation and energy infrastructure,…
Even today, after 20 years of their independence, 99% of schools, universities, houses, transportation system, energy infrastructures in those countries are the ones left by the Soviet Union Empire.
Soviet Union occupation of those countries lasted only 50 years. Now, go to Africa, and check what the WEST left after 500 years of occupation and colonization!
Those eastern European countries got more advantage of 50 years of soviet occupation than we africans got from the West occupation during 5 centuries.
In fact, there is not even one SINGLE country in the world where western european countries have ever been and helped developed the country, instead they’ve jut looted the local people and put them into slavery and colonialism.
Europeans developed ONLY the places where they first committed genocides by killing the local people, then took their lands and installed europeans populations as majority. Those countries become overseas europeans countries, like Canada, Australia, United States, etc.
Any other places where the local population still is the majority, they didn’t develop anything but did looting and exploitation.
