    By what criteria is Russia a "Major Western Country"? I'm not being argumentative.. just curious. Like I said, their GDP isnt all the great and the country is mostly in asia.

    They certainly don't consider themselves "Western". Aside from some of the liberals in the Opposition...

    I thought they did because only 35% of Russia is in/next to Europe but contains some 77% of their population. If Russia is not of Western culture and religion etc.. what are they?

    That sounds more accurate to me... in which case Russia being a "Major Eastern Country" would be apropos.

    They're probably considered more Eastern European.
