    For assholes hwo asking for Königsberg, that's tow was always part of Germany, and residention of German kings, emperors and presidents at least. After 1945. it's included in USSR but Russians didn't stole that, that was just to show to Germans that they are not "Pure race" what they thought. Königsberg for Germans was Sankt Petersburg for Russians, now the Germans are discriminated in that town, so sad. Russia after Emperor it's not right Russian Christian great country, but we hope that would be returned, Putin do good job now. Grettings!

    But even today Russia has large territories full of people who aren’t Russians and don’t want to be part of Russia. Here’s a pretty amazing statistic: in the first 19 years of the 21st century Russia has had more of its soldiers killed within its own borders (mostly Chechnya and the rest of the North Caucasus) than the United States has lost in its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "Fall"? Other than the chunk they sold to the U.S. (and now think they're entitled to) it's about the same size it's always been. It's also wealthier and more powerful than ever.
    We should all be so lucky as to "fall" like that.

      we had 23 000 000 square km at 1866, that the biggest territory russia ever had.
      Total area of the Russian Empire in 1914 (the beginning of the First World war and the end of historical Russia) without Alaska, half of Sakhalin, Chinese Possessions: 21 799 825 square km.
      The total area of the territory of the Russian Federation : 17 098 246 square km.
      even tho we are getting some of those territories back, its still a lot to have lost.

    Crimea became part of Russia in 1783, not in 1801. And in the 18th century the territory of present Kazakhstan was Russia.

      Russian Empire was a superpower after Napoleon defeat. They was most powerful country on continental Europe.
      Joseph Stalin was obsessed with Peter the Great. He want to rebuild Russian Empire like in Peter the Great times.
      In 20th century Russian Empire become weak becouse of Nicholas II who ruined empire.

    It would be so weird if Russia didn't control Siberia. Imagine the nations that would appear. Would the Mongols have an influence, like in Central Asia? Would a Chinese imperial dynasty occupy it? Would the British control any lands, specifically any archipelagos (Franz Josef Land, etc.) in the Arctic Ocean? It would be extremely unlikely for native Siberian cultures to arise in my opinion.

      Most ethnic groups in Russia have no history of statehood and are often geographically isolated from the rest of the world. They can never have their own states.

      There are a number of ethnicities within proper Russia who don't see themselves as Russian so in effect they have been colonised.

    • Eartha Kitt

      The Russian Empire was more about creating a Greater Russia but the British, Spanish, and French Empires was colonization. I think that's it.

    Say what you will about Russia, whether present or historic, but the fact that it managed to secure such a huge territory for centuries, without the deadly fragmentation other empires suffered from, is impressive. Nationalism is and probably will remain the fuel for such a massive country. Funny how Siberian tribes and others, who had nothing to do with Slavic culture and had their ancestors massacred, are today proud to be Russians.

      ​@Jinseual Of course Britain ended slavery, cause everything has to end sometimes, but not because British Empire became angel to other nations all of sudden, but because after war they couldn't maintain such territory plus people had enough.

      If the Siberian tribes had been totally massacred, then who is proud now? Are you retarded? The feature of Russians they are tollerant and let all people involved in the empire live better then they could before.
