Can Russia afford a large scale war?

Shills on both sides gtfo, this is an actual assessment thread.

As some of you know, war isn't about manpower but many other factors such as logistics, equipment, ability to repair equipment, intelligence, ability to manouver and relocate fast but most importantly it relies on being able to afford the war. While rich in natural resources, Russia lacks some of the basic inputs such as microchips which showed its flaws when their airlines had to significantly reduce the flights due to inability to repair their aircraft. War costs money and most rich countries nowadays could barely afford large scale warfare. According to world data, Russian GDP per capita holds the 56th place, behind Kazakhstan. To maintain the cost of war, sacrifices have to be made which means less money in the budget for the population. That usually isn't a problem when the country is being invaded but it becomes a problem when country is fighting a war outside their borders since most people will reject shortening their budgets if their lives are not in direct threat. What's your assessment of the Russian ability to maintain the cost of war without general public starting to turn their backs? What number of soldiers could Russia afford to send to a war? I will drop some pics down relevant to this situation.

      This doesnt apply very well to the current situations for 2 reason imo:
      1: Russia isnt fighting far away from home but in a province many russians perceive as rightfully russian clay
      2: The interconnected nature of global trade creates a situation where a prolonged conflict is hurting all sides

      I think the deciding factor here will be whether or not russia can maintain a pro war attitude among their people.

        Exactly my point. Russians can endure depression since they have lived in it since forever, the question is will it be enough to justify when their kids get called for mobilisation. Many russians grew up westernised despite them thinking they didnt.

    Russia can't afford modern warfare. However Russia's potential shouldn't be judged by modern standards, because Russia isn't a modern country. Reason why Mongols conquered most of Asia wasn't because they had GDP that allowed them to start large scale war, but the opposite - it's because they were poor, hungry and pissed and they felt they had nothing lose when they saw wealthier countries.

          have in mind how many soldiers is russia using in ukraine vs hom many they have vs how many they could use vs how many they could have if necceseary also do not forget that every male civilian capable of fighting is armed with at least a rifle and therefore is a guerilla fighter capable of damaging enemies and gettting killed but then ukrs would say muh war crimes russia bad what do you mean we are hiding soldiers in schools and hospitalss noooo the ruskies are bombarding and shelling them just for fun and because they are evil kappa also have you ever seen any video showing ukrainian civilians preperring molotov cocktails? what were they going to do with them ? use them? for sure not they must have gave them to the army of course no civilian would attack a russian soldier and become an enemy guerilla partisan fighter how could you think that lmfao so hard bro

        I know you know that. Russians don't know that and that still makes them dangerous. Even if their army is shattered, they'll still mount Maxim guns on Ladas and send more cannon fodder and that connon fodder is more fanatical than generation of their parents because they grew up on new quality of Russia's propaganda that's much more effective.

        this is the most retarded take I've ever read about the mongols
        you absolute brainlet

        That's because you're uneducated Arab and Mongols who've reached middle east weren't poor and hungry anymore.

    the top three american companies are a company that manufactures everything in china, a software company that hasn't innovated anyhthing since the 1990s, and a company that buys magic paper that allows it to extract rents from the profits of other companies.
    The Russian economy is just useless shit like oil and gas and metals and food and fertilisers, which are all completely useless in a time of war.
    Why the fuck is an internet search engine is worth a trillion dollars? What precisely makes stupid fucking apps like facebook and twitter so valuable in a time of war, when the other country can destroy the whole fucking internet by shooting down a few sattelites and cutting a few undersea cables.
    American wealth is a chimera, nothing of real value, not even owned by real Americans either

      This. I see this escalating to the point of no return. Just hope you don't live in a key target nation. If you do? Hopefully it's a big one & it won't be your area that gets hit.

          Brazil has lots of problems with favellas and unemployment. I'm more amazed by Japan, these guys are basically hivemind worker bees.

          Actually, Brazil used to be about 30% bigger in GDP and industry. We have been suffering one and a half decades of stagnation after political problems in house (corruption, political unrest on Petrobras an a historical landslide issue on Vale).

          We would be way bigger then Russia if we didn't recede for such a long time. We sell onions, remember? Ever wonder who makes all that onions that basedjack consumes?

            there is africa and there is africa premium (southamerica) hahaha but what can i tell you bro brazil is just an another state of mind hahahha btw corruption is a good thing because what corruption really means is even the lowest class citizens can take part in real corruption so thats good because anyway corruption or not the top 1% the most influencial people the politcians they are all corrupt and are corrupting one another anyway so if a lower class citizen can also take part and play the game that is good and beneficial to everyone honestly you just have to have money and you are in thats a fair game

              I mean maybe, but it wasn't widespread corruption for little guys: it was specifically political corruption of 585 chamber members (politicians) on deep Oil extraction contracts. They used to get kickbacks for making the contracts on certain providers of drills to drill the undersea oil.

              Soo it wasn't corruption on a scale that the smaller guy could get in, it was corruption of a very small group (about 600 politicians) of the 200 million people country, that's what caused such a civil unrest and drop in GDP.
