They know enough the Europeans are willing to tie their Martian landers to Russian tech. We are getting OT for Chinese space programs though.
Russia/USSR already had blueprints for Lunar lab modules and the means to make them, Zvezda moonbase and LEK were cancelled due to political reasonsA lander that is not proven. Russia hasn't been able to orbit the moon since fall of USSR. They can't even send a probe to orbit moon let alone Mars. I'll believe it when I see they land on Mars.

The LK lander was infact considered to be a superior design by NASA engineers who had the chance to see it firsthand after Soviet dissolution, China even bought the propulsion module's blueprints. The real issue is money and lack of political will
There is nothing truer than what he is saying. Defeat is hard and bad. It is not something you can talk your way out of. Let it be a reminder for all countries in the world. Remember the hordes of fools in Russia who cheered on and celebrated the fall of their own nation. They had the idiocy to blindly believe that whatever coming afterwards is necessarily better.That's wildly uncalled for and not appropriate for this forum. Comments like that get you banned. Scale it back, please.
You guys realise that MarkD is being sarcastic here right? He's trying to say that in the western mindset Russia ought to suffer for losing the Cold War and using a sarcastic hyperbolic tone to make fun of that attitude.
