                           The Russian Federation.
    The Russian Federation is the largest country in the world. It occupies
about one-seventh of the earths  surface.  Its  total  area  is  about  17
million square kilometers. The country is washed by 12 seas of  3  oceans  :
the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Arctic. Russia  borders  with  many  country.
They are : Korea, China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan,  Norway,
Finland, the Baltic states, Belorussia and the Ukraine. It also  has  a  sea
border with the USA. The population of the Russian Federation is nearly  250
million people. The capital of the  country  is  Moscow.  Its  its  largest
political, scientific, cultural and economical center. Russia is  very  rich
in mineral resources. There is gold, platinum, diamonds,  coal,  peat,  oil,
gas and wood. There are over two million  rivers  in  Russia.  The  Europes
biggest river , the Volga , flows into the Caspian sea. Others  main  rivers
are : the Ob, the Yenisei, the Lena and the Amur. Russia  is  also  rich  in
beautiful lakes. The world biggest lake - the  Caspian  sea  and  the  world
deepest lake - Lake Baikal are in it. Russia  has  one-six  of  the  worlds
forests. They are concentrated in the European  north  of  the  country,  in
Siberia and in Far East. On the vast territory  of  the  country  there  are
different types of climate, from arctic in the north to subtropical  in  the
south. In the middle of the country the climate is continental.  Russia  has
four beautiful seasons : winter , spring , summer and autumn. They are  very
different. The Russian Federation is a parliamentary republic. The  Head  of
State is the President. He is  elected  for  4  years  and  his  powers  are
limited by the Duma. At present Russia has  some  political  and  economical
problems. (The price are rising, the rate of inflation is very high,  people
are losing their jobs and many factories are stopped).  But I  believe  that
in the future the young generation of  your  country  will  sold  all  these
problems and they shall make Great Russia as strong  and  powerful  as  it
used to be.

    Russia occupy a large territory. It strech almost 10 000 (ten thousend)
kilometres from east to west and nearly 5 000 (five thousend) kilometres
from north to south. It's population is 150 000 000 (one handred and fifty)
million people.
    From spring till autmn the sun never sets over Russia: in Kaliningrad
peole see it sitting in the Baltic, while in Kamchatka it rises out of the
Pasific Ocean at the some time. People in our country see the New Year in
eleven times in one night.
    If you begin to trevell in the Far East by air and fly 8 000 (eight
thousend)kilometres towards the west, you will land in Moscow on thr same
hour same day that you left the Far East.
    It is a wonderful sight yo see our country from the plane. One can
hardly imagine a country more interesting to trevellers whan Russia.
    Siberia covers millions of square kilometres. You fly over mountain,
endless forests, large and small rivers, railways, motorways. You leave
behind the lights of young and small towns, plants and factories. Siberia
is a rigeon of untold riches.
    Father West are the Ural Mountains the border between Asia and europe.
The Urals are riche in different minerals.
    The country's European part covers the territory from Urals to the
Baltic Sea. The largest cities of the Russia are situated between theBlack
Sea in the south and the Black Sea in the north. Such an our country from
East to West. There is no over countrys in which the climet differs so much
from one part to another. When it is still winter in the northen regions of
our country the first warm days arrive in the south. In the central regions
show storms and cold are still in power, while in the south people begin to
think of spring crops. In the same season nature looks different in
different parts of our country.
     Russia is rich in oil, coul, iron, gold, silver and other minerals.
