Your data seems to be expired http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...es_by_GDP_(PPP)

Same for the military and space budget, though I actually can't find current figures for both countries. But for Russia they are totally different for now cos it was increased whereas US initiated the cut.

The topic and the question are actaully really weird.

So Kazakhstan national debt is less than Russian. Is Kazakhstan a real competitor for modern Russia?

This thread is not about which country is better, its a "vs. thread" and like all "vs. threads" its not serious.

Ah ok. Well PPP is a bit more valuable I think.

As for the military expenditures, currently Russian expenditures are approx. 100 - 130 billion dollars annually (that's planned annual budget till 2020). I don't have current American figures but what I know they started to cut the expenditure and plan to axe it on 60% up to the 2013-2014.

Actually they returned it in the beginning of 2000s the main loaner was a Paris bank, everything was returned to the last penny.

Kazakhstan is not a competitor it is a partner. Because we have the Custom Union with Russia and Belarus. And this union will make our countries stronger
