It has been said that Eastern Europe is a political region more than a physical region. Would you agree or disagree with this statement? You must provide a solid argument for your position.
Eastern Europe has only been a political region since after World War II. The Soviet Union took them under their wing and joined them to the communist political system but since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe has been trying to get past their struggles and make themselves more socially viable and economically profitable.
Physically, Eastern Europe is joined to the rest of Europe. There are no natural borders between them. Its climate and landforms are the same as the rest of Europe's. Until they manage to get past their struggles I think they will more widely be known as a political region.
Is this ok?
