They know enough the Europeans are willing to tie their Martian landers to Russian tech. We are getting OT for Chinese space programs though.

A 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.

Russia/USSR already had blueprints for Lunar lab modules and the means to make them, Zvezda moonbase and LEK were cancelled due to political reasons
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

Basically, Russia must endure 100 years of humiliation due to defeat of Cold War. They cannot have the political will anytime soon.

That's wildly uncalled for and not appropriate for this forum. Comments like that get you banned. Scale it back, please.
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.
Well, poverty, shortened life expectancy, rampant corruption, out of control gangs and mafia, total plunder of wealth, large number of women forced by poverty into prostitution, collapsed industry, internal ethnic conflict, religious sectarian violence, terrorist insurgency, etc. All of these is what these idiots, who happy signed off their own nation and future to be plundered by Western/Global capitalists in exchange for a meaningless metal (and praises from their enemy), deserved.
Just like a woman who whore out her body for free in exchange for a "Gold metal in chastity". She will get NOTHING, NOTHING but pain, humiliation, ruined physical and mental healthy, and a reputation for being a stupid whore.

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.

All countries suffer humiliation after defeat. Germany lost land in WW1 and WW2. Austria lost land in WW1. Turkey lost land in WW1. Japan lost land in WW2. Spain lost land to US and Britain. Russia lost land to Japan. China lost land to Britain and Japan. Russia lost land after losing Cold War. Turkey had to suffer 100 years of humiliation until 2023 when Erdogan changes constitution with a supposed Lausanne treaty expiration. Japan can't change constitution until 2045 100 years after defeat in WW2. Heck, even China suffered 100 years of humiliation after defeat by Britain at Opium war in 1841. It wasn't until 1949 when Mao said zhong guo ren min zhang qi lai le.
