People overstate separatism in Siberia, but I think the southern border republics like Tuva, and maybe Altai if the demographic trends continue indefinitely will one day ask for true autonomous status, if not complete independence. Buryatia will never be independent though because of water resources, and it is overwhelmingly ethnic Russia now.
>>596056 >https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republics_of_Russia#Constitutional_status >The level of actual autonomy granted to such political units varies but is generally quite extensive. The parliamentary assemblies of such republics have often enacted laws which are at odds with the federal constitution. The republics' executives tend to be very powerful. However, this autonomy was lessened considerably under Russian President Vladimir Putin, who sought to impose the supremacy of the federal constitution.
>The establishment of eight large "federal districts" above the regions and republics of Russia, with presidentially appointed governors overseeing the republics' activities, has strengthened federal control, and respect for federal supremacy in the republics. In addition, Putin strengthened the position of the republics' legislatures, while weakening their executives' power. The executive heads of republics are now appointed by the President of Russia himself. The President's nomination must be accepted by the republic's parliament.

>>596031 Well, they already have Mongolia. I think the chances of those republics becoming Chinese or in the Chinese sphere of influence are not very likely as long as the Russians care for that territory or their military becomes weak enough.
Provided as well, neither Russia nor China would have an armed conflict over that territory alone.
