Living in Russia
Russia is the World’s largest country, and spans both eastern Europe as well the whole width of Asia. It’s capital, Moscow, is located in the West of the country within the borders of Europe, where incidentally three quarters of its population also reside. The country is one of the World’s main economic and military powers; its vast territory means that it possesses extensive reserves of a range of resources including oil, while it also has the World’s largest nuclear weapons stockpile. Geographically, Russia is extremely varied, from mountains and volcanoes, to forest and farmland, and from lakes to Arctic coastlines. Its climate is similarly varied, including both a semi-arid climate in the south and a polar climate in the north. Russia’s oil, metals and timber comprises the majority of its exports. Corruption is prevalent in Russian business, law enforcement and politics. Particularly in recent years, Russia has seemingly played an increasingly risky and intrusive role in foreign politics, such as the ongoing investigation into the 2016 US Presidential Election, and poisonings of Russian nationals in the UK. Russia has an extensive national space exploration programme, and currently possesses the only method of transport for astronauts who are heading to the International Space Station. Russia has over 100 ethnic groups, and just as many languages are spoken in the country. More contemporary Russian culture is characterised by the Communist rule in which it formed; functional and brutalist.
