You know well that Russia had never been economically powerful
Not quite true Kostik - look at the Russian Empire just before ww1.
It used to be number four or five worldwide.
But even without good position in those economical rankings you were able to produce high tech weapon on your own.
Today even India got problems with your military exports.
Not to mention the disastrous Bulava case.
So don't be afraid about Poland - we are your friends anyway.
We are not going to attack you like we used before.
Frankly who is keen on bordering China ?
So brothers take care of yourselves first.
We can wait.
BTW. Kostya, how was your Revolution's Day ?
