14. Russia also loves--and will promote--any migrant crisis in a western democracy:

Cui bono? is a key question thatís been asked by more than few Europe-watchers in recent months as migrants have helped shift EU politics decisively to the right. Itís difficult to avoid noticing that many of the far-right parties reaping the whirlwind now across the EU have positive views of Vladimir Putinís Russia. The EUís rising right admires the Kremlin for its unapologetic emphasis on traditional values, state sovereignty and zero tolerance for jihadism. Anti-immigrant rallies in Germany have featured protestors brandishing Russian flags prominently, as well as German ones.

This extends beyond mere sympathy. Franceís FN has accepted millions of dollars in funding from the Kremlin, while Germanyís AfD seems to have benefitted from Russian largesse as well. Itís therefore not surprising that the leaders of those parties have warm, praising things to say about Mr. Putin and his regime, viewing Russia as a bulwark of conservatism and an ally against migrant invasion.
