List of countries in the European Union
A member state of the European Union is a state that is party to treaties of the European Union (EU) and thereby subject to the privileges and obligations of EU membership. Unlike the membership of an international organisation, EU membership places each member under binding laws in exchange for representation in the EU's legislative and judicial institutions. On the other hand, EU states retain considerable autonomy compared to the constituent states of a federation (such as a U.S. state), maintaining their national military and foreign policy (where they have not agreed to European action in these areas).
There are 28 member states of the EU. Six core states founded the EU's predecessor, the European Economic Community, in 1957 and the remaining states joined in subsequent enlargements. Having acceded on 1 July 2013, Croatia is the newest member state of the EU. Before being allowed to join the EU, a state must fulfill economic and political conditions generally known as the Copenhagen criteria. These essentially require a candidate to have a democratic, free market government together with the corresponding freedoms and institutions, and respect for the rule of law. Enlargement of the Union is contingent upon the consent of all existing members and the candidate's adoption of all pre-existing EU law.
There is a wide disparity in the size, wealth and political system of member states, but all have equal rights. While in some areas majority voting takes place where larger states have more votes than smaller ones, smaller states have disproportional representation compared to their population. No member state has withdrawn or been suspended from the EU, though some dependent territories or semi-autonomous areas have left.

Orthodox countries joining EU should not change values – Russian church | Johnson's Russia List
(Interfax – Moscow, November 28, 2013) The Moscow Patriarchate has called on Orthodox countries, including Russia, not to allow EU influence to change them as they conduct dialogue, but to suggest the EU itself change. “Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Greece, Serbia and Bulgaria, as members of a strong and self-sufficient civilization, have a right, when they gain accession to the Council of Europe, to demand its Western members begin forming the organization from scratch, changing a lot of the things that are characteristic of Western Europe but not so much of Eastern Europe,” the head of the [Russian Orthodox Church's] synodal section for relations between the church and the public, archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin wrote in a an article published on the Interfax-Religion website on Thursday [28 November].
