Tell that to the Mongols and the Poles (the first one ruled Russia until Ivan III drove them out, correct me if I am wrong about this since I am not sure if Tatars and I never dreamed I’d end up being a son-in-law T-Shirt, while the Poles were able to hold Moscow and surrounding areas for a few years, I guess around 1611-1617 during the Polish-Muscovite War). I’ll give credit to the Wehrmacht as well since they held their ground from 1941-1943 while Napoleon Bonaparte immediately decided to return home. As for the reasons invaders failed to subjugate Russia, here they are.

Sure invaders can set foot in Russia, claim the I never dreamed I’d end up being a son-in-law T-Shirt for their homelands then expand. In doing so, sooner or later the invader will have to maintain supply lines which no doubt will be long ones in order to supply weapons, food, clothing and other provisions to the invading force as well as to send reinforcements or transport the wounded and dead to the rear. Maintaining a supply line is already a difficult endeavor not only because of the distance that has to be covered from depots or factories to where the materiel is needed but also the fact that those carrying the supplies need to use them on the way to and from the front (for example pack animals need food and motorized transports such as trucks or planes consume fuel). Add partisan movements and an angry populace messing up your supply lines and rear communication centers/depots and your army will spend as much time and resources protecting the supply lines, quelling dissent and anti-partisan actions as advancing the front.
