If you say in the description on the main page that "Sharing a land border with Russia hasn't been so great lately", then you could also say that "Having oil reserves hasn't been so great lately". I thought it's a quiz page, not a political one...

Countries have been getting invaded for their oil for a very long time, not just lately, and by many different nations, including Russia. Then again I guess it's been bad news to share a land border with Russia for a very long time, as well. Longer than it's been bad news to have oil, actually.
