Russia is a large country which occupies a vast territory both in Europe and in Asia. It
was the main part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics which split into a number
of independent states.
Russia is rich in mineral resources: iron, coal, oil, natural gas, gold, silver and others.
There are many powerful rivers, mountains and fields in the country. There are also big
forests including a very large taiga area in Siberia. The climate is mainly continental
with cold winters and fairly warm summers.
On the map of this country we can find a lot of big industrial cities such as
St.Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Novosibirsk but the largest of them is
Moscow. Moscow is the capital of the country, its political, industrial, commercial and
cultural centre. There are many places of interest in Moscow: the Red Square with its
famous St.Basils Cathedral, the Tretyakov gallery, the Art Museum named after
Pushkin, the Bolshoi Theatre, beautiful parks and gardens. You can find here many
places connected with the life and creative activity of many great Russian writers,
painters and compose3rs. A lot of foreign tourists come to admire the Moscow Kremlin
which is the heart of the city. Moscow is old and new at the same time with sky-
scrapers and modern living areas.
Russia has a long and tragic history. Many wars, revolts and revolutions took place in
Russia. Now our country is on the way of radical democratic changes.
The highest organ of legislative power in Russia is the Federal Assembly which consists
of two chambers: the Federative council and the State Duma. The highest organ of
executive power is the Council of Ministers. The head of the state is the President.
