Russia, the largest country in the world, spans 11 time zones across Europe and Asia, with coastlines on the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic oceans. Its terrain is diverse, including deserts, frozen coasts and mountains. Much of the country is comprised of vast, treeless plains known as steppes. Siberia, covering three-quarters of Russia, features pine forests known as taigas. The country has around 100,000 rivers, some among the world’s longest, and notable lakes like Ladoga, Onega, and Lake Baikal, holding more water than North America’s Great Lakes combined.

Russia is a diverse nation with over 120 ethnic groups speaking more than hundred languages. Around 80% of Russians trace their roots to the Slavs who settled there 1,500 years ago. Significant groups include Tatars and Ukrainians. Russia is known for its intellectual and artistic contributions, with figures like Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and Rudolf Nureyev. 

The Russia Governed as a federation with 86 regions, Moscow is its centralized hub. The president, elected by the people, heads the state. The economy relies heavily on natural resources like oil, gas, coal, iron ore, gold, and aluminum.

Moscow has continental weather with very cold winters and mild to warm summers, sometimes reaching 35°C.
