Asked in Russia, Continents

   

What continent is Russia on?

   
   User Avatar 
   Russia is typically considered part of both Europe and Asia. There's some dispute over where the border between the continents actually is (in Russia and beyond), but most people say the part of Russia west of the Ural Mountains is European and the eastern part is Asian. That means more of Russia's landmass is in Asia, but more of the population lives in Europe, as the biggest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg, are both on the European side. If this frustrates you—"Why can't everything fit cleanly into our categories!"—I have bad news. Russia isn't the only country that spans multiple continents; Egypt, Greece, and Turkey do it, too.

(The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use
   different prefixes.)

Asked in USSR in WW2, History of Europe, Russia

   

Why is Kaliningrad an important port to Russia?

   
   User Avatar 
   Before WWII Kaliningrad belonged to Germany (earlier Prussia), but in 1945 Russian leader Joseph Stalin wanted to get "kusok giermanskoj ziemli" ("a piece of German ground") and the city was incorporated to Russia. It is an important port because other Russian ports in Baltic Sea are located far in northeast. It was (and still is) a great base for Russian naval forces. But there is one problem - there is no land connection with other parts of Russia.

Asked in Netherlands, Russia, Importing and Exporting

   

What does Russia export to the Netherlands?

   
   User Avatar 
   Russia and the Netherlands have a strong import/export relationship, with the Netherlands helping to develope Russia's oil refineries and petro-chemical industry. As it seems to have come up as an issue, one should note that sex workers in the Netherlands are paid, not slaves. Slavery was outlawed there long before the United States outlawed it, and any cases of it happening are criminal cases - not the norm. The importation of sex workers - while having nothing to do with the question - is a problem that every Western nation is experiencing.
