Russia is an independent and strong power. She has the right and the strength not to want to be the eternal handmaiden of states which are more developed economically…She is proud by her great might, by which she jealously guards not only the political but also the economic independence of her empire. She wants to be a metropolis herself. (Witte, 9)
The USSR was one of the largest global superpowers from 1922-1991 as they grew into a successful communist nation. Even before the takeover of surrounding nations in the Cold War, the USSR implemented a series of plans to advance the economy that, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica,
One country is comparable to the United States of America in terms of world power and prominence. Russia makes their name known beginning in World War 2 (WW2), later in the Korean War, Cold War, and today’s proxy war in the Syria.

Another repercussion of the Soviet Union’s collapse was the failure of the economies of almost every new post-Soviet country. Most of the economies of the new Republics were left in shambles after the collapse. In Russia, people were not ready for the new economic freedom that resulted from the fall of Communism. Their unpreparedness led to inflation. “Inflation caused prices to go up three hundred percent in the first month, and 2,591 percent by the end of 1992.”( Russian Economy in the Aftermath of the Collapse of the Soviet Union) Just three years after the Soviet Union’s fall, Russia’s inflation rate had skyrocketed to 2591 percent, evidencing that Russians were not prepared for such a rapid evolution, going from a communist economy into a capitalist economy. All post-Soviet countries had the same economic fate as Russia, plunging into worse economic conditions than the United States suffered during its Great Depression. For example, in 1992, the Ukraine had almost a fifteen percent drop in its gross domestic production and Latvia suffered a 33 percent drop.

Russia has built a strong, but stagnating economy on several natural resources to include the refinery and export of natural gas and oil. According to the Jim Picht (2014) exportation of natural gas and oil to Eastern Europe account for 70 percent of Russia’s exports and 53 percent of the government’s revenue. Along with exporting oil to Eastern Europe, Russia also exports too many countries to include China and Belarus.

Russia is among one of the major economies in the world because it relies on energy revenues to drive economic growth. The country has an abundance of natural resources such as oil, natural gas and precious metals, which make up most of Russia's exports. In 2012 as surveyed was done and found out that the oil and gas sector of Russia accounted for 16% of the GDP, 52% of federal budget revenues and over 70% of total exports.
