Russia’s huge natural resources are the reason why the neo-liberal world is fighting against Russia. The former US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, said in an interview that “It is a great injustice that 40% of the world’s mineral resources belong to one country, Russia.”
The Russian people consist of Belarusians, small Russians [Ukrainians] and Great Russians. Common characteristics of the Russian people are a strong sense of justice and search for the truth.
The "all-Russian nation" is an imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology that is a favoured pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at weakening the national identity of Belarusians and Ukrainians as well as their sovereignty.
Ukraine and Belarus are well-defined nation-states with a long history; both nations preserved language, literature and identity, despite foreign rule for long periods.
