Twenty-five years ago, Russia accounted for 22 percent of global income. Today, we account for only two percent. Naturally, the country has fewer opportunities in solving its problems. In terms of defense, Russia announces new defense projects and passes new arms into service. But 25 years ago, we also had new and modern weapons. Today, we are talking about rail-based missile systems, but such systems existed during the times of the Soviet Union! Is it the time to take a sober look at reality and do something to change our state-run policy? -

Russian economy is going down fast....Their economy is smaller than Spain. And Spain is the poor sick man of Europe...not as bad as Greece, but still...

2,410 soldiers killed as of July 3. Ukraine sure got a bloody nose trying to take back Donetsk. :)

And don't even think about touching Crimea. It's heavily guarded, plus Kiev, Odessa, Lvov are all within strike range of Su-34s based at Sevastopol.

"The shelling of civilians LC white phosphorus (Videofact). Published on video, confirming the use of Ukrainian security forces of weapons forbidden by international conventions. From the outset of hostilities in the Donbas Ukrainian security forces used weapons that are prohibited by international conventions. In Currently collected a lot of evidence APU use of cluster munitions and phosphorus. Here is another proof of this. The village Groove Slavyanoserbsk district LC was fired projectiles caliber 76.2 mm, stuffed with phosphorus. "sent for examination - in the evening came to -76.2 information, phosphorus "- says army soldier LC. As we can see, no international agreements are not capable of stopping Ukrainian aggression."

Not really sure what you are trying to say. Frankly, if Russia goes 'whole hog' and uses all of its assets it would take whatever part of the Ukraine and probably be approaching Poland before NATO geared up enough to stop it
I brought as a separate sample. Huge work on improvement of logistics of the Armed forces of Ukraine. From items individual soldier to change the structure of teams. For example: 79 airmobile brigade before the war had in its composition - the 2nd battalion of paratroopers battalion of 122-mm D-30 + regiment army aviation and 88 separate battalion, with headquarters at 200 km from the place of deployment. Now in the brigade: three full battalions of paratroopers, anti-aircraft battalion, a battalion of 122-mm SPG, a battalion of MLRS "Grad-2", a battalion of 122-mm D-30 and a company of 120-mm mortars,anti-tank company with a heavy ATGM + regiment army aviation. This is just one example. Agree that Russia could capture part of Ukraine. The question is at what price that the Russian people will have to pay for them.

You are the Chechen? Kadyrov called himself a SOLDIER of PUTIN
LOLs Russia has 3 exclaves Crimea, Kaliningrad, Sakhalin. :balleballe: Ukraine has 0 exclaves.
+ Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Transnistria. Transdniestria people eating go to Ukraine for a meal, from Kaliningrad to Latvia.

Russia touches Norway. Russia touches Korea. I am sure that one cherry picked picture proves a lot about the whole of Russia.

I am not sure how much of a clue you have about how big and diverse Russia is. I have not been too Russia, but I could imagine, as I have driven from US East Coast to US West Coast and back.

I have not talked about all over Russia. Russia is multi-faceted. I was talking specifically about places where people live like socks in the hole. Find me a picture of Norwegian rural shop?

A friend's brother and sister-in-law traveled along Trans-Sib, and I really enjoyed seeing the pictures. People are usually fine in Russia.

In his country's problems - to the throat.But apparently Russia all their problems with such shops decided if climbed to the Crimea, Transnistria, South Ossetia, Abkhazia. Train station in Tiraspol goes only one train, no airport, normal mobile, ATMs. The Internet is.

Why? Transnistria without Russian recharge and jobs in Ukraine and so will die. Without the Odessa hospitals, without the goods for export and import.

Hmm, I see. So that means Russia will have to take Mariupol, Nikolayev, Odessa, all the way to Tiraspol.
