comment Why Russia didn't embrace Western culture and principles?
The Western characteristics you list are not principles; these are the practical long-term results of the actual principles. You don't obtain strong democracy by saying "enough, this country would have now strong democracy, c'mon everybody".

comment What motivated Germanic tribes to accept Christianity?
"I can understand why certain classes in Roman society adopted Christianity"... Can you? The more I think about it, the more I see that there is some characteristic of the polytheism that I'm unable to grasp. I cannot put myself into position of the ordinary men so rapidly, consistently and persistently converting to a monotheistic religion previously alien to them. But the same scenario just repeats over and over through the history; why do you think the reasons were different?
