Whats more generous about russia? Political murders?(probaly state sponsored) Lack of freedom of speech? Open cleptocracy? Thanks, but no thanks...
You already have all of this.
But Russia, at least will not force you to fight against USA. Also Russia suggest smaller prices on resources and suggest better price for your goods.
 
You neither.

"It may not be an aircraft carrier at all, maybe it will be called differently, because not every drone will return to the base, you can continue to fantasize. But instead of fantasizing, it is better to wait for a conceptual solution, and then apply intellectual and technical knowledge in order to implement all this in the most acceptable solution for the Ministry of defense," Rakhmanov said.

The point was you said that aircraft carriers were redundant and quoted countries still building battleships. Whether Russia calls it a drone carrier, an aircraft carrier, even a ‘thru’ deck cruiser’ isn’t the point. It will carry aircraft. As usual you were wrong

'Non-returning drones' are normally called 'cruise missiles'. Carriers of cruise or ballistic missiles hardly can be called as 'aircraft carriers' - 'missile cruiser' can be a better word. Same way, 'non returning drones without engines' are usually called 'air mines', and a 'carrier' of such 'drones' can be called as a 'mine launcher'.

The Russians have all sorts of stuff pointed at NATO. Buying energy from them only helps to modernize their military.
Not buying energy from them will also help them to modernize their military. Less energy they sell to EU - more energy they have for themselves (and other customers). But the lack of energy will kill European industry for the profit of American and Chinese ones.
No industry means no money, no money means nothing to defend.
What is better - to have property and weapon to defend it or have nor property, neither weapon to defend it, but only sense of satisfation from making a minor problems to your neighbours?

In 2030, or maybe sooner, almost definitely later; Russia will launch a nuclear powered aircraft carrier. As is usual with the Soviets/Russians it will carry other kit rather than stick to its primary purpose of carrying an air wing:
Russia to start development of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier in 2023 — source

The bigger question of who builds the aircraft carrier, China (doing their own), India (doing their own)? It’s unlikely to be Ukraine that built the last ones. Maybe Russia will build a dock/port capable of such a task.

As usual, you are wrong.

Return Alaska? Why? You were too stupid to sell it in the first place. It's legitimately ours. Go troll elsewhere.
It was sold for money to the USA, to avoid be captured for free by Brits. We talk not about history, but about future. There are still good reserves of gold, diamonds, titanium, palladium, zinc, coal, gas and oil, and it will be a good outpost for the futher Russian expansion in North America.
Also, control over both Alaska and Chukotka means control over Bering strait and Pacific-Arctic passage. It will be especially useful if there will be significant 'Global warming' after the war.
