The long term reasons for Russia's entry into WWI were to save face on the international arena by participating in the war and winning; unite the country with a very patriotic war fought for the ideal of pan-slavinism (help me out if that's not the correct term); perhaps territorial gain at the expense of her neighbors, Austria Hungary, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire; and financial assistance in return for military involvement from her Western allies. If anybody knows any other reasons--of which I'm sure there are more--feel free to add or edit this answer.

Is it true that the reason why Hitler wanted to take over Russia was because Russia was more powerful than Germany?

No, when the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union in 1941 they thought the country was as weak as weak could be - some kind of military joke.The reasons normally given by historians for the invasion are:Expanding into Russia and Russian-controlled territory was a long-standing ambition of many German nationalists. Towards the end of World War 1, Germany had succeeded in defeating Russia, but the victory was of no use to them because they were defeated on the Western Front.The Nazis were above all anti-Communist and saw it as their mission to rid the world of what they called "Jewish Communism".
