Formerly known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), Russia is known as the largest country in the world and also the ninth most populated nation in the world.
This country, known for its variety of wide environments and various landscapes, extends across the entire Northern Asian and Eastern Europe. Its name is derived from the word Rus,a medieval state that was populated mostly by East Slavs. This vast country is also home to several historical figures and monuments such as Peter the Great, Mikhail Gorbachev, Vodka and the famous St. Petersburg Square.
