Russia is a ‘gas station pretending to be a great power’

Republican strategist John Jordan says in essence, Russia is a “gas station pretending to be a great power”.

“The Russian defence budget is only eight per cent of the US defence budget,” he told Sky News Australia.

“The Russian national budget is dependent upon energy export for 50 per cent of their revenue and 30 per cent of their gross domestic product.

“Militarily, their weakness is being exposed.”
