Hell, we may even end up with a Second Russia Empire instead. Losing control of its troops is more likely - given conditions like health, economic, and geopolitical in the region - but selling weapons on the black market (after "disappearing" them first through paperwork) looks to be the more serious problem. A straight missile launch... Risky - unless the "black hats" want to stir up trouble somewhere?
