If I may offer some advice to Russia:
I would not get too involved in tit-for-tat retaliation when the West plays silly games. In a sense you legitimise their actions by being drawn into their games.
Clearly sometimes they need a good kick in the teeth but often they are the ones left looking stupid by their pathetic behaviour.
Better to concentrate on building up your own country through sound moves and if they want to shit all over the planet they'll be seen for the idiots they are.
Clearly some actions require a firm response but sometimes its best to leave the nit-picking to the nit-pickers.
These people are incapable of decent behaviour, so don't expect it from them.
I think this approach would be seen as a sign of strength not weakness. Remember it is often better to show a wayward child the correct path rather than resorting automatically to the rod.
