    Default To which country Russia compares the best (level of development, living standards etc).

    Russia is obviously very rich in natural resources but it is also very far from Canada and Norway development wise. So to which societies it would compare the best? Ukraine and Romania? What else? Closer to Argentina or Brazil? Obviously more developed than India and i think Iran and even China as well (despite the fact China has cities where salaries are close to Eastern Euro). Discuss please.

    I've always seen a similarity between Russia and Argentina on standards of living (even seen some apartment blocs here lol). People live better than they think, the education is above average but the brain drain is big. Both are relatively safe too.

    Perhaps in population diversity, it's close to Brazil. A good bit of regional variance in climate, nature, way of living and genetics, but still culturally and linguistically whole. But due to its size and history Russia is just incomparable imo, any comparison I make here is full of flaws.

    Russia is just more unstable and corrupt and also a huge one so i would also compare it to bigger countries.

    This was my bet also. Russia has suffered high criminality rates so here it reminds more of Brazil, but bit more developed. Argentina and Brazil are just democracies and Russia is not which of course plays a role too.

    Russia has high education level and good engineering power, but standards vary geographically. Talent people. What sucks is consumer good production and consumer market.

    Russia is probably the country with the most potential for growth of all. It has an intelligent, educated population, almost limitless natural resources, most of which the world really need. It has a very stable government and mostly internal peace and unity -- the most in Russia's history for a long time.

    All these are the reasons why NATO countries, especially the US, are aggressively targeting Russia in any way possible, militarily , financially and economically. Russia's perceived enemies know all this, therefore fear and envy Russia, and hence implement unlimited sanctions in order to keep Russia down.

    I agree about many things that you just said and indeed, there is some hatred towards Russia, always been. But i would not say that the Russian government is stable, it is not and people who hate Russia know this and use tricks against it. Too bad Russia didn't experience normal transmission from communism to capitalism and could not intergrate itself properly with other Europeans. Many things failed, including privatization. Maybe certain Western countries didn't even want Russia or maybe Russia could not deal with it's problems because of all the mess it has been through.
