I stand corrected, Russian Federation has about 2 million less in population than Bangladesh. Though my original search showed significantly more population than Bangladesh.
Still unsure how that is significant? China has less Area than the USA, but substantially more in population, and shares 19.24% of world population, compared to the U.S. which shares approx. 4.45% of world population. http://www.worldatlas.com/aatlas/populations/ctypopls.htm
The population is significant because Russia has plenty of land; it’s war on Ukraine is due to its arrogance and Putin’s need to keep his people focused away from his criminal empirt. As a gangster statesman, he cannot allow his own people to wonder why he rules without their consent, uses the public media for his own political purposes and propaganda, and why all their wealth goes to the new elite he created. He has said the collapse of the Soviet Empire was the worst thing to happen in the 20th Century. It was, then, in his mind, worse than both World Wars, the Holocaust, the Gulag, and Mao’s mass murder. Well, if that doesn’t mean he aspires to redress the loss, you must think it’s just a coincidence that he’s mistreated Georgia and Ukraine for chauvinist reasons and empire building.
