Russia won't be helping their economy to any significant degree. But their exports to Europe, japan, South Korea and the US will be significantly impacted. Perhaps they want to use the their drone tech in Ukraine as a lab to test their effectiveness in a future war with Taiwan. If so, I am sure we have the tech to counter. Another bad bet on the part of China.
