How large was Tsarist Russia, compared to the USSR?
How many ‘Stan’s are bordered to Russia?

If Vladimir Putin said, “A Russia for all Russians.”, and with the USSR, how many Russians are located in those bordering areas, outside of the old Warsaw Pact nations?

At least 25 million. That’s not a group a country with a rapidly declining population like Russia can afford to overlook.

More than even land, Russia needs more people. I’m surprised the West hasn’t figured it out yet.

Terry: "how large was Tsarist russia compared tothe USSR"

The USSR was smaller -- Tsarist Russia in 1914 included Finland, most of Poland, then Bessarabia

If Vladimir Putin said, “A Russia for all Russians.”, and with the USSR, how many Russians are located in those bordering areas, outside of the old Warsaw Pact nations? -- that's shown above. But the largest are in Estonia, Latvia, Kazakhstan
