Just like the assassination of an archduke and his wife, the rulers of some little country few outside of Europe had ever heard of didn't set off WWI.
Austria-Hungary was a multinational realm and one of the world's great powers at the time. Austria-Hungary was geographically the second-largest country in Europe after the Russian Empire, at 621,538 km2 (239,977 sq mi), and the third-most populous (after Russia and the German Empire). The Empire built up the fourth-largest machine building industry of the world, after the United States, Germany, and Britain.
Seemingly small events, can cause monstrous effects.

May be WW3 between US-China-Japan and not necessarily US-Russia.
