It looks like the Russians have taken some serious offence to the west ignoring them over the past decade. Obviously they think the only way to get noticed again is to beef up their military. In my opinion that is the exact opposite of what they should be doing, the fact that the west no longer sees Russia as a threat is a good thing. I think that Russia should learn from Germany's example, they too were once a bitter enemy but managed to fully integrate into the west.
