Mr. Alexander Zinoview, have you looked at the map lately? You've mentioned their aim "was" to reduce Russia down to a position we'll "never" rise to "great superpower." Russia is 77.3% larger than the United States of America in terms of area. If you add non-Russian Europe (Ukraine and Belarus included) & Turkey to all the 50 United States of America they would still be short of Russia by 660,790 square kilometers! Then if that's not enough there's Kazakhstan with 30% Russians, the size of Western Europe. We are "THE" superpower.
American leadership of the Western World crumbled (Just look at Germany, France...). At least we have resources on our side.

Russia may terminate all kinds of military and military-technical relations with Israel, including the agreement on the exchange of reconnaissance data
