Since the fall of the Berlin wall I have had the Soviets find massive Oil reserves on their Chinese Border. After reading "The Bear and The Dragon" I added large gold veins spanning the Sino/Russo border. This helps me explain how the Soviet economy could survive and adds another reason for the initial Soviet/Chinese conflict.
