Seems like Russia just plays at being a "great power".
I think thats the designation they gave themselves after losing "superpower" status.
They have a seat on the UN security council so have to huff and puff periodically.
However, when it comes to vetoing resolutions, I don`t think they ever have, since the disolution of the USSR anyway.
Like China, the Russians know their in the sights of the US wolf, so don`t really want to antagonise them further.
This is a bad policy because the US empire is determined to crush all independent nations,Yugoslavia,Iraq, Afghanistan, N korea, Cuba, Zimbabwe etc,
all on the to do/done list of the evil empire.
