This is how it's always been. Russia (well Soviet union, same thing) always been right up there. Reeling after the doping allegations, but bouncing nicely back now. Oil oligarchs (LukeOil) sponsoring the world cup team, and government programs at lower level. Lots of coaches, main one is German (Cramer).

Of course extra good recently with finds like Ustyugov and especially youngster Bolshunov. Women side too some great talents. Recruitment is of course very good like you say. Hungry nation, hungry people.
