Strategy employed by the Russians in every single war they have ever fought. Basically involves digging in, sending suicidal charges of men, mostly unarmed to the slaughter, and hoping the winter sets in quickly and kills the invading army.

Notable successes: Napoleonic Invasion of Russia, Crimean War, Operation Barbarossa (Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union during World War 2).
Notable Losses: World War 1 (The winter killed the Russians due to significant logistical errors - the Germans also helped).
Aleksander: Should we try and hold of the invading army?
Sasha: Nah, we'll just employ the Russian Defense and let mother nature take care of this "great land". Pass me more Vodka!
