„Not withstanding its vast territory and rich mineral resources, the Soviet Union can only with difficulty support its population. Its extreme northern latitude makes for a short agricultural season, a situation aggravated by the shortage of rain in areas with the best soil. Its mineral resources, often located in areas difficult to reach, are costly to extract. Its transportation network is still inadequate. The factors have historically been among those compelling Russia – Tsarist and Soviet alike – toward the conquest of neighbouring lands. No empire in history has expanded so persistently as the Russian. The Soviet Union was the only Great Power to have emerged from World War II larger than it was in 1939.“ (Committee on the Present Danger, zitiert bei Dalby 1988: 425)
