This looks impressive, I just don't know why are the Slavs affraid to do this.

I think that everyone got used to their own borders too much and are affraid to change it. Our individual national mentality needs to change to just one and we need to start refering to ourselves as Slavs - not as Slovaks, Czechs, Polaks, Croatians, Serbs, ...

True.
One thing i'm worried about in "ethno-political" meaning: it would be easy for the western Russia to become a part of the Slavia mentally, because the european part of country is russian actually. and it is closely tied to all european countries. But not sure about the eastern part, where are some of the non-slavic republics situated.
Russia just can't be a monolith Empire - we respect all cultures, languages and traditions here, saving them and making them equal.
Many people of the eastern republics are proud to be part of Russia, to know and speak Russian, as the first international language in the Eurasian space, but don't think they'd gladly positioned themselves as the part of the Slavic space.
So i think for Russia the question about Slavia isn't as easy, as it looks on the map. There's one way: Slavia must be something more, than just "ethno-political" unit, it must not be limited by any bounds and borders. It must be the big family, which consists of people - not countries.
So, yes, just wanted to say that i fully support your words.

I think it's alright to refer to ourselves as nations (as you say Slovaks, Czechs, Polaks, Croatians, Serbs, ...).
Of course, in my opinion it is a good idea to create one state but these nations have their own traditions and habits, their traditional clothes and languages. We just need to forget the past and forgive the other nations that we had a conflict with. :)

Indeed.
I think Slavian meant that "pan-slavic" self-consciousness (hope google translated this word correctly) must be higher and more important for all of us, than national self-consciousness. Of course we don't have to forget our nationalities and traditions :)
