This is according to the latest data by criminologist Matt Ashby.
This is a stunning reversal from a century ago, where contemporary “Core Europe” (Britain, France, Germany, the Low Countries, and Scandinavia) had homicide rates of 1-2/100,000 vs. around 5/100,000 in places like Italy, Finland, Japan, and Russia.
The one good thing about this is that this is making certain political-demographic decisions made by Western Europe over the past few decades much less attractive to East Europeans, thus acting as a counterweight to pro-multicultural propaganda campaigns. Even though they are still poorer, on most beans-counting measures of economic progress, it has simply become nicer to to live there as Western countries falls into dysfunction.
Incidentally, as concerns Russia, I think this is a very true observation by Vile Varangian:
When Russians visit Western Europe, all the 👨🏿 and 🧕 and 🏳️🌈 are like a slap to the face that draws attention from everything else. Whereas places like Czechia or Poland seem more like Russia might look like in another decade.
