    Russia during the peek of the cold war Russia was spending 35% of their GDP to
    maintain their military. They have never been able to transition from a communist
    infrastructure that gave no incentives for production to a more liberalized economy.
    The only reason Chinese were able to transition is US opening up China with trade
    to bring down the Soviet Union or China would be in much worst shape.
