Russia Required More Than Horses

 Then you need logistics - for want of a better word. What resources are required? I'm always reminded of the old story that whenever Napoleon's brilliant marshals came out with great plans of moving against Prussia, or Spain, or what have you, Napoleon would listen silently and then ask, "How many horses does it require?" Usually they hadn't thought it through and their plan outran the available horses. That's very typical.
