Former Soviet countries are part of Moscow’s domain and risk Ukraine’s fate if they go up against the Kremlin, Putin has insinuated. Kazakhstan?

I really would not like to be in the Russian armed forces if the operation in Ukraine is any indication of how they conduct conflicts.
Morale must be rock bottom and they seem to not give a single shit about casualty counts or entire divisions being totally destroyed in insane attacks.

That they're having to grab tanks out of museums is also a great sign that things are going really, really fantastically well for the armoured brigades.

Maybe they should actually start not being completely outmatched in this war before decing to go for another but that's just me.

Of your list, only Kazakhstan makes any sense.
Nothing to be gained by going into the Baltics at this time. Certainly not Estonia. If anything, Lithuania to gain a land connection to the Kaliningrad Oblast.
Belarus is already a puppet state that dances to Moscow's tune. A waste of time, money and effort.
Finland? No - unless the goal is war with Europe.

But Kazakhstan is the entire Russian space program, and always has been. One can't help but wonder why it was ever given independence at all after the fall of the USSR.

Robert Kaplan (the leading geo - strategist ) suggests that the only one way (for Moscow) to bring us to a negotiations- table its to occupy Narva of south of Latvia and ask for negotiations
