The highest political unity in the world by territorial extension, equal to over 11% of the emerged lands), the Russian Federation has inherited the great planetary role and the no less demanding internal problems of the Soviet Union : its European section, in fact, constituted the political decision-making center and the immense Siberian domination, a mighty reservoir of raw materials, the exploitation of which had long ago opened pioneering fronts in continuous advancement. After the dissolution of the USSR these potentials remained with Russia: but in a context of change that is still very uncertain. On the political level, while maintaining the external forms of a democracy, the regime formed under President Elcin and above all under his successor Putin has gradually taken on increasingly authoritarian characteristics, with absolute control over the media, the judiciary and big business: freedom of expression, criticism and political and trade union organization basically remains, but with increasingly evident limits dictated by will of power; in parallel, political parties have lost their role and people’s participation has been decreasing. On the other hand, even the international relations of the Russian Federation have not been able to develop fully towards integration with Western Europe and an alliance with the USA: on the contrary, a climate of mutual distrust has slowed progress in that direction, pushing Moscow to rather pursue a policy of alliances with China and of protection towards the authoritarian regimes of Former Soviet Central Asia, in an attempt to maintain a role of great power. On the economic level, then, the liberal model imported in the nineties of the last century still struggles to find a balance with administrative structures, mass mentality and a social organization built and consolidated in over seventy years of collectivism; when individual initiative, both in the fundamental agricultural sector and in the industrial and service sectors, was suffocated or reduced to expressing itself only with theft and corruption. The economy, with the beginning of the century. XXI, has begun to gallop, driven by the very high oil prices of which the Russian Federation is the second world exporter: but this growth does not benefit the whole country. Immense private assets have been established in the hands of very few individuals through the privatization of state-owned enterprises, with extremely casual when not openly illegal procedures; a flood of capital, obtained by selling natural resources, has taken the path of foreign banks (or imported luxury consumption) instead of being reinvested in the national economy; very large industrial companies have been left to fall apart due to lack of the necessary investments to overcome their technological backwardness or to reconvert their production. Thus, on the social level, a large part of the population, especially the weaker strata, has suffered a radical worsening of their living conditions, while the employees of the State and of the weak industrial sectors still receive very low wages that force them to double and triple jobs at the expense of the services (health, education, defense, etc.) entrusted to them. To all this are added serious and unresolved problems such as the more than ten-year armed conflict in Caucasus of the North (in Chechnya, but with reflections in the adjacent autonomous republics and a terrible aftermath of terrorism), the insufficiency of the housing stock, the lack of efficient communication routes, the weight of a gigantic and largely unsuitable military apparatus to the new global geopolitical conditions. A mass of problems that only with great difficulty this great and rich country will be able to unravel in a short time without risking new and unpredictable shocks. According to COUNTRYAAH, Russia is a nation in Eastern Europe, the capital city of which is Moscow. The latest population of Russia is 145,934,473.
