And by the way, most if not all, of these countries have a higher per capita GDP than Russia.
Russia occupied central Europe?

What used to be called "Eastern Europe". Not only have street names and city names changed since the fall of the USSR, but "Eastern Europe" has changed its name to "Central Europe".

Western/ Eastern Europe were cold war terms distinguishing between the free world and Soviet occupied nations.
Most if the cold war Eastern Europe countries are in fact located in the geographical center of Europe.

You Mongols occupied several countries in Europe for over 50 years. Do you think Europe will ever forget that?

There's actually a very good reason to visit Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, hell even Shenyang. Since there are plenty of reasons to fly that far, and Vladivostok ain't one of them, why even bother asking the question?

This topic has been derailed. In regards to the question, the more important question to ask is do Asians or Russians consider Vladivostok an "Asian" city in political/cultural influence? The answer is unanimously no. Russia is also considered irrelevant in the Far East and the only country in the Far East that Russia has any real influence in is Mongolia, a country that has fewer Mongolians than China. A lot of Asians view Vladivostok/Russian Far East as being a colony of Russia and in some ways it can be considered to be the Asian Kaliningrad.

Definitely a European (well, Russian) city. It would have been interesting to see what cultural interactions/fusions that might have occurred had Vladivostok and other cities of Far East Russia had much higher populations.

Brainwashed Chinese believe that it was their city. No big deal, for now.
