but what about invading BEFORE winter. If you do that you have a few months to win the entire war.

Actually, about half of Russia is always around zero. Though, roughly the area from Western Russia to Moscow is pretty fertile in non winter months. Talk to xy if you want to learn more, I'm sure i generalized or was completely inaccurate and am now a fat American retard.

Lolicon, that's what just about everyone who has ever invaded Russia has tried to do. But no one (besides the Mongols) has ever done it fast enough.

To conquer Russia does not need to take fast, because it is not really possible, nevertheless a huge country.
If you can take it slow and orderly progress if the supply, unlike most war the army was left without supplies,

I think you are missing the point. After you nuke the crap out of them then Nuclear winter will fall over the entire world and then it will be winter for forever everwhere.

Barely any Hunnic territory was actually Russian. The land that was, was south Russian.
Avars migrated, not conquered
Hungarians migrated
Turks migrated
Timurids raided, not conquered
Vikings didn't conquer Russia, it is even doubted that they sent people to found Kievan Rus
Scythians didn't really actually conquer any kingdoms / countries worth mentioning. It was all tribes & stuff.
Poland-Lithuania did indeed.
Finland basically held their front, they didn't actually make much progress. (Still an impressive feat considering their size).
Likewise, Kievan Rus' weren't actually conquering anyone to get the land. Just tribes.
Goths migrated
Uzbek didn't conquer, they just were in the same general region... By that logic, Kazan, Sibir, and a whole lot of other geographically Russian countries count as well, which they don't.
Sweden did do it.
Golden Horde did pick off a few weak Russian principalities, but that's about it.

By your logic, France also conquered Russia, but they just sacked Moscow and left. Not real conquest if you ask me. The Mongols kind of took over Russia. They amassed the territory, but they were used to the weather, and didn't take down many principalities from former Kievan Rus'. So let's look at a list of who actually conquered Russia (even - kind of)

Poland-Lithuania - Defeated in war
Sweden - Defeated in war
Mongols (to an extent) - Defeated a few principalities
Golden Horde (to an extent) - Defeated a few principalities
Timurids (This is REALLY stretching it) - raided Russian cities, including Moscow, no actual conquest.
France (And this is really, REALLY stretching it) - sacked Moscow

Poland-Lithuania - Defeated in war


The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth won the Polish-Muscovite War, I thought. Russia kept its independence, though.

I'm not sure that's what you're saying, though.

Russia did indeed keep their independence, but the Commonwealth were able to successfully conquer Russia. (Despite the fact that there was a peace treaty, and obviously not a full annexation).

Didn't the German Empire also beat Russia in the winter during WW1, I know not conquered but beaten..
You could say it was because Russia was in the bloodiest civil war in history.

Germany did, and I'm glad you didn't say Austria-Hungary, because the Russians would have beat them to a bloody pulp (Germany saved them)
