Strategy Edit

Present DayEdit

At the start, move your soldiers to the Ukraine Ukrainian border and immediately declare war on Ukraine Ukraine for your cores. As Russia, your biggest threat is going to be China China if they rival you (very likely). India India is a natural ally for Russia because of their high manpower, size, location, and border with China. Allying with India India is crucial in ensuring that China China will be less likely to attack. If China China starts to fall to a lot of rebels, you have to IMMEDIATELY attack them because this could be Russia Russia's only chance to cut China China down to size.
