Russia

From Heterodontosaurus Balls

For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while, for many people in the West, it is still a living lion.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Russia, officially the Russian Federation, is a Slavic transcontinental nation in Europe and Asia. He is the largest country in the world, having 11 timezones without the help of oversees territories. Most of his land is a cold and vast place called Siberia, which is very rich in resources like oil, gas and minerals.

Russia has a harsh and strong personality, which is one of the reasons why he likes to bully his neighbors. Because of that, a lot of other countries dislike him. Russia also drinks way too much vodka, so he is usually drunk. Russia is also known for his authoritarian personally. He does have elections, but all the opponents who even have a tiny chance against Putin are arrested, making sure Putin stays in power until the end of time.

История (History)[edit | edit source]

Early Russian Federation[edit | edit source]

Main article: Russian Federation (1991-1993)

In 1991, the Soviet Union officially dissolves and the RSFSR declares itself as the Russian Federation. Boris Yeltsin becomes president, and embarks radical economic reforms, attempting a swift transition to a market economy. But this fails and caused hyperinflation and widespread poverty.

Wars, Wars and more Wars[edit | edit source]

Chechnya, a region within Russia, proclaimed his independence as the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, igniting a protracted conflict that spanned several years and resulted in a staggering number of casualties. Ultimately, the conflict concluded with a victory for Russia. In 1999, amidst ongoing challenges and controversies, Yeltsin resigned from the presidency, paving the way for Vladimir Putin to assume the leadership of Russia.

In 2008, Russia levied false accusations of genocide against Georgia, leading to a military incursion. The ensuing conflict concluded with a victory for Russia, which subsequently recognized the independence of two breakaway territories within Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

In 2014, Russia controversially annexed Crimea from Ukraine, defying international condemnation from the vast majority of countries worldwide. This action sparked significant geopolitical tensions and repercussions. Furthermore, in a move that further escalated tensions, Russia launched another military intervention in Ukraine in 2022. Russia also accused Ukraine of being infected by Nazis, and claims that he is just "cleansing" Ukraine. As of June 2024, this conflict remains ongoing. Also Russia uses ℤ as a military symbol and really likes the ℤ.
