Turks did suffer a drain from warfare with Russia, but then they had passed their prime anyway. Their primitive govt structure impeded social and technological advancement, and allowed Europe to gain complete ascendance. The threat that russia represented prevented a more concerted effort on western Europe. Good thing, as Rome would've become a cultural wasteland...
