1)Russia is a country with full of natural sources such as Petrolium,Oil,Coal.
2)But their population is very low. Country's vast, huge geographic area is requiring human resources, man power on large scale.
3)To eradicate the poverty from country the should invite workforce from their friendly countries.

Putin lives like a king while Russian citizens beg for bread
Cause of Russia's economic deterioration is coward USA and it's Allies. These coward NATO countries used "divide and rule" policy perfectly.

They disintegrated Soviet Union but what they are doing by setting up military bases all around the world? Don't you think that they are forming they're own Soviet Union like unity?

: all countries should remember that USA don't want to befriend with you, it want to use you for it's own benefit. So think wisely before trusting.

Its like in the USA the rich are have all the real power and the poor are given hate and fear to keep them fighting each other.

The government of Every country want to show their best image. But the reality is, the poverty is every where. I am an Indian, and unemployment is the biggest problem here. It is very difficult to find a job or work here. Because the people are very selfish and the system is very bad.
russia = anus of the planet. scum of the world mixed together in one place.

Russia's economy has been battered by the falling price of oil and Western sanctions over the situation in Ukraine. In November, Russia's economy minister said the country was no longer in recession but the economy is expected to shrink again this year. With many Russians feeling the brunt of this crisis, could it have an impact on the high levels of popularity enjoyed by President Vladimir Putin?
