Those are some interesting points, and I agree Russia has some formidable weaponry. But it is designed to protect not to project at it's core. And it's serves it's country very well in that respect, no doubt. Other than submarines and some bombers, it has nothing logistically to attack with boots on the ground across the ocean.
Very few countries do, and the ones that do are in NATO they get help from there allies, they pool there resources.
