From where did it 125 come? Why in the answer its written 10 out of 125?

Can any body explain this puzzle?

Bharath said: (Oct 5, 2011)  
The only way I could think of arriving at 125 is to approximately add all the gdp's from UK to Aus (50+15+10+10+10+20+10 = 125).

Guys Here is the answer:

See the question here is a bit tricky:

Its saying that if 10,000 is for whole for a decade for everyone.

Than Russia's share for 5 years.

So Include everything like Bharat said - (50+15+10+10+10+20+10 = 125).

And than see the Bar: Russia's First 5 Years during the half decade 2001 - 2005 = 10 points so,

We have 10 out of 125.

Language of the question is a bit odd, especially "out of every 10000 spent" it should be different.
