I think the Russian are self reliant when it comes to the Oil and the Minerals, thanks to siberia. In the future Russian hodld the key because there is a chance that Russian may take over the entire North pole which is rich in oil and Natural gas under it. They do not have the necessities to start a war so that they can get the oil at a Cheap rate and easy way.

To the other post, about the russian providing arms to the extremists , I thinks we are being brainwashed by the half-witted holly-wood films .

Can you compare Space budget of USA and USSR at the time Russians launched first man in to space? $ is not absolute measure of ability.

I would prefer bit stronger Russia and bit weaker USA. It is newer good for other nations when one country gets too strong. Large power tend to corrupt. Always better if there is balance of power. Keeps relations between nations more healthy and fair as nobody can act as ruler of the universe.

Self reliant for whom? For China? Russia should not fear to become a raw materials appendage of China

Didn't even have to think about that...USA all the way.
If my wife spoke English, you can be sure she and I'd have moved to the USA a long time ago
