This idea has been kicked around for some time, murabit, but has never gained wide acceptance because , in any such union, Russia would be the dominant member and the other countries would be reduced to a satellite status. Pan Slavism was thus shelved the moment it was conceived.
It is unfortunate since the Slavs make up a major part of Europe's population but since in the distant past they were broken up , scattered, and grew into different (and contending) political entities, it is too late now to reverse. I think the formative moment was when the Russians underwent a long period of Mongol occupation, influencing Russian language and culture and political systems, making the Russians more akin to an Asian country than to the west. Meanwhile, countries like Poland, Czecho and your own country, murabit, are thoroughly CENTRAL European, with more in common with Austria and Switzerland than with Russia.
Thus, I can see no benefit or synergy from their union. The "balkanization" (sorry for the bizarre word choice!) of the Slavic states began a long time and the blood feuds in the Balkans, the estrangement of the Slavs have gone on too long, have become too entrenched to ever be reversed.
The Arabs suffer similar problems. Though they make up a large portion of the world's population, they can not forget their differences and own interests for the sake of "arab unity".
The one form such a union could take would be a union of Western Slavs, Poland, Czecho and Slovakia, but since Czecho and Slovak just split, the trend is more toward splitting up than reconciling age-old differences.
