Russia, the largest country in the world, spans Eastern Europe and Northern Asia, known for its vast landscapes, rich history, and geopolitical influence. Governed as a federal semi-presidential republic, Russia’s political landscape is dominated by the United Russia party, led by President Vladimir Putin, who has been a central figure in Russian politics for decades. Other significant political parties include the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF) and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR). Russia has a complex history, including the era of the Soviet Union, and underwent significant political and economic changes in the post-Soviet period. The economy is diverse, with energy resources, especially oil and natural gas, playing a crucial role. Moscow, the capital, showcases a blend of historic sites like the Kremlin and modern skyscrapers in the Moscow City business district. Russia’s cultural identity is shaped by its Slavic heritage, literature, music, and renowned cultural institutions like the Hermitage Museum. While Russia holds a prominent position in global diplomacy as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, it faces challenges such as political repression, concerns about human rights, and strained relations with Western countries. As Russia asserts itself on the world stage, debates over its political system, economic reforms, and international relations play a significant role in shaping the nation’s trajectory within the Eurasian region and the broader global community.
