The countries who live by selling natural sources, are the third world countries.

That was so dumb by your side.What's the matter if you sell electricity or natural resources?Or should Russia stop selling their resources and then Europe will see what crisis means lol.There is no shamefull way of getting money for your people,that means Russia can sell everything she can..and still Russia doesn't seem like a 3rd world country right?

I not say that is bad if sell natural sources. But is bad if the country live only from this.

Russia is one no democratic country, and her leader Putin survive by selling the natural sources of the country.

Same make and Saudi Arabia and other countries.

I ask this simply question:

What is the future of Russia?

Natural sources soon will finish. What will be in this case?

Will be the biggest economy crisis in Russia.

British Prime Minister David Cameron discussed the plan with President Vladimir Putin when they met at the Olympics, The Daily Mail reports. Putin said he would like Gazprom to make up 20% of all gas supplies to the UK. This would make the Russian monopoly UK’s second biggest gas supplier after British Gas. The paper suggests, the project appeals to Downing Street because it offers diversifying gas supplies that are mostly coming from the Middle East.

The project will boost BP’s involvement in the Russian energy market, following the company’s deal to take a 20 per cent stake in Russia’s oil major Rosneft.

Until recently BP could only operate in Russia through its joint venture TNK-BP and thus couldn’t work directly with Gazprom. Now BP is selling its 50% of TNK-BP for $12.3billion in cash and a 20 per cent share of Rosneft and will have a free hand to choose partners.

Nord Stream opened a year ago and brings Russian gas to Europe bypassing Ukraine. Nord Stream's major shareholders are Gazprom with 51% shares, Germany’s Wintershall and E.ON Ruhrgas own 15.5% each, France's GDF Suez and the Dutch Gasunie each have a 9% stake.

Apart from resources Russia has scientists and know-how. I am sure that it will develop modern economy based on science and services once resources finish.
