NotesNews : Russia is bankrupt and in danger of collapsing into total anarchy. Russia may once have been a superpower but is in the second division as a global economic player, accounting for just over 1% of world output. Unless Russia proves to be the straw that breaks the camel's back, and there may be plenty more straws to come, it's crisis will not be enough to bring down those countries which have so far escaped the fallout. This is not to say the West can ignore Russia's plight, or deny the need for a strong successor to Boris Yeltsin., Nobody should understimate the political, social, and military danger if a former superpower with 150 million people and 10,000 nuclear warheades descends into chaos.
