It's still great!

The Russians have made massive cuts to their military since the end of the Soviet state. They now spend a tiny fraction of what the US does. I think they will enjoy the "peace dividend" now. They have always been excellent in basic research. Remember the International Space Station is really all Russian engineering. After years and Billions spent, the US still faced technical blocks to engineering their own, and the Russians brought their technology to make this a reality. They have also done most of the resupply and ferrying of cosmonauts. Data compression in the computer age is still dominated by Russian mathematicians, and some of the most popular modern surgical techniques are created by Russians. I think they have a real problem with the "lost generation" bitter and useless after the fall of the old order, but the younger people have their eyes fully open and will quickly make up lost ground I think. Meet some of them, and you will start to change your opinions. They love Putin because he is not a proletarian booze-hound, but a clever, focused, and dignified leader who has brought new stability to a country that found itself rudderless after the failure of the previous system, and the abuses of its disintegration..

MW,

He posted it because part of China's current media strategy involves talking-up ties with Russia.
