Russia has a lot of territory, more than any other country in the world. A large share of it is populated sparsely. Not easy to defend, in general. There a lot of places where they could drop a large bomb in order to stop invaders without worrying about harming civilians.

I thought the blast was 5 times its weight of TNT. I suppose the 10ton MOAB doing 10 ton yield is much heavier than the actual explosive charge. Most of the weight must be for penetrator and casing material

I understood that there is a separate version of MOAB which serves as bunker buster, and it was not the one dropped recently.
