    the British museum has lots of treasures from around the world that it refuses to return because it claims only it can look after them properly...  Rolling Eyes

    The lesson is that if you steal something, just put it in a nice display case and you wont have to give it back...

    Perfect example of this is the Elgin Marbles dispute between Greece and the UK.

    This is an economics post but fits the thread theme. Russia has never been an Empire. It does not conform to the definition of
    an Empire as a leech on its colonies. Instead, Russia elevated its "colonies" to levels higher than the center which basically
    no Empire in history has ever done. The USSR inherited this un-Empire mode in the name of the communist ideal. You can now
    see the impact of the collapse of the Russian un-Empire in Ukraine, the Baltics, and Central Asia. All of those "colonies" are reverting
    to their original states.

    Here is a nice video analysis:

    Because they were not colonies in the western term but equal parts of Russia. That´s the problem of these "states". They are mostly artificial in nature. They had to invent there own history, which was mainly done by far-right extremists (coming from the west) in the 90´s. In that regard I don´t see it as an "error" of Russia to invest money in these regions in the past. Odessa, Riga and Baku were part of Russia just like Murmansk or Wladiwostok.

    Here is an interesting answer post of mine and some of it relates to Grand Tartaria or forgotten Russian history.

    Got something interesting for this board. https://web.archive.org/web/20200701065421/https://www.stolenhistory.org/threads/tartary-an-empire-hidden-in-history-it-was-bigger-than-russia-once.40/

    I wonder if Grand Tartaria should have its own thread here or not.
