    This doesn't make much sense.
    Why mention the Arleigh Burke class?

    The Buyan class is basically the replacement for such vessels as the Nanuchka and Tarantul class small missile boats.
    This, as well as the fact that they were designed to be moved via internal river/canal/waterways determined their size.
    The use of those internal waterways means they do not have to pay heed to the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty.
    It also means they can be deployed internally.
    It also means they can be built in places like Zelenodolsk....deep within Russia, which as a brief consultation with a map shows, is approaching a journey distance of 2000km from any major sea or ocean.

    It was this that determined their size, not unrelated things like the Arleigh Burkes.
    As it is, they are probably the smallest aurface vessels carrying the longest, hardest hitting punch in the world today.
    This alone makes them an interesting and intriguing class.

    kinda update, the Kremlin in action: posted claims of

    "The US-led Coalition Air Force entered the 15-km zone around Abu Kamal to interrupt operation of the Russian aircraft. ..." etc. etc. https://www.facebook.com/mod.mil.rus/posts/2007062896203123
    and to prove the claims, some video game footage

    saved by a major Russian news-server https://lenta.ru/news/2017/11/14/minoboroni/
    and even by Stalinists https://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/3806998.html

    I guess by now the KGB removed it, but where are their forgers, did they all go to Sputnik? LOL!

    Main idea is to partially compensate for prohibition of land-based lsnd attack cruise missiles.
    Among "big" navies you mentioned, PLAN is only now getting such a missile(but China, unlike Russia, has no limitations on deploying land-based launchers), and JMSDF is a traditional cripple without this offensive capability.

    Only USA can do it the way you speak, and only because lots of its roles are relegated to friendly navies and militaries.
