    Russia's allies and pals

    Which countries does Russia trade with extensively and have good relations with? Or is Russia more of an isolationist country?

    What about political allies? It doesn't seem like they make close relations with any specific countries, just whoever is best at the moment.

    Our closest political allies are Belarus, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kirghizia. I’d say they’re our satellites.

    And of course there's Chechnya.
    Сюда нужно смотреть. И слушать, что я говорю.

    Chechnya is not a state. It is part of Russian territory, one of 89 Russian regions.

    Still, they're great partners.

    OK. As a Texan, I have to admit that I'm confused by that last comment about Texas.

    stop me

    Oh I could really say somthing there but I won't.

    I was making the point that Chechnya is a region of Russian, as Texas is a region of the usa.

    OK, did I miss some huge sarcasm here? Isn't Chechnya trying to break away from Russia right now, how can they be considered a "great partner"?

    Many others strong alies with Russia

    Russia also has a very strong cros relation with many countries such as those who invest heavily in and by Russia bilaterally. Cyprus for instance has no visa requirements for Russians and they have many tourists who spend US dollars there. Cyprus also invests heavily in Russia base on the latest reports. A similar situation exists with Egypt.

    Does Russia still export military supplies - tanks, armored vehicles, AK-47s and the like?

    The Iraqis do have many French weapons and some American weapons from the '80's and some Russian ones too so I think you are right.
