I don't think Russian Federation belongs in the Cat:Former countries; it is the offical name of the Russia today. RobS 23:34, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Do you mean to say Russia was not a constituent of the USSR? Or that the Russian Federation as constituted in 1993 (IIRC) is not the successor to the Russian Soviet Federated Social Republic?--All Fish Welcome 00:23, 10 May 2007 (EDT)
Russian Federation is its name today (unless the Vladimar Putin, as the article says, heads a defunct state). It was alwasy refered to as the Russian Federation even in Soviet times, although its formal name was Russian Soviet Federated Social Republic (or something like that). RobS 00:31, 10 May 2007 (EDT)

Reversion of Edit

I accept the reversion of the previous edit by CharlesACE if it was actually stolen from another source, without said source being credited for it. However, not all of the changes were unwelcome. The GDP data are outdated; according to the CIA world factbook, Russian GDP for 2009 was 1.2 trillion (at the official exchange rate) or 2.1 trillion (purchasing power parity). GDP per capita, in PPP, was 15,100$. The estimated nuclear force, however, should not be 15,000 warheads, but much lower than that; on May 13th, 2010, Russia was reportedly considering revealing its nuclear stockpile data. Until it does, I suggest not inserting any actual number to this article. Finally, I'm for removing the "one of" in the industry paragraph: I don't see any other former Soviet Republic which could compete with Russia in industrialization, and I think Russia can safely be considered the most industrialized ex-Soviet state. Would it be ok if I made the suggested changes to the article, without reinserting the apparently stolen "History" section? --MarcoT 12:10, 12 June 2010 (EDT)
