Its is not Russia that will cause WW3, Russias primary foreign policy aims as Jeffrey Mankoff argues is to return to being a great power. It is the largest nation and wants to hold an authoritive position and its sphere of influence. If you are reference to the Ukraine crisis Mersheimer points out NATOs enchroachment into Russias sphere of influence. The west would be more likely to trigger a war. Russia or Putin would only defend the nation if in danger as any country would do.

Would it go to war to achieve great status? I think not, it already has oil ans size, no one wants nuclear war its assured mutual destruction. Russia has never been able to get a grip on its economy and its nation. Even if war with Russia was to happen, history argues no one takes Russia during the winter so those who are at war with Russia will need a solid plan.

The world won't go to war over Russia. It's too expensive.

Until the cost of effective warfare drops the world will fight proxy wars inside countries with cheaper military technology to reduce expenses.

The real question is when will the nations of Islam start WW3. Love for god gives way to no reason, and can consign the world to the fire.

Nobody can do anything about it. Russia is on the edge of causing a world war, if the conflict in Ukraine continues, war Is the only option.
