Just don''t be surprised. The following poll was made to know what non-Russian people think of Russia. Based on this info, we are going to develop games for foreign people having the "Russian flavor" they (I mean you) anticipate. Don''t ask me if and how it would work - it wasn''t my idea. · What do you know about Russia if to recollect within 10 seconds? · What Russian scientific achievements do you know? (famous scientists, inventions, space exploration, chemistry, physics and so-so forth) · What do you know about Russian military affairs? (weapons, famous military operations, famous military squads) · What do you know about Russian geography? (cities, animals, nature) · What is most interesting in Russian history for you? (events, wars, personalities) · What do you know about Russian culture? (monuments, museums, art, fashion, music, mythology, habits, religion) · What do you know about Russian literature? (Russian books, which impressed you most of all; characters, poetry) · Russian sport (events, personalities etc) · Russian TV, movies, cartoons (most impressive movies, actors, anchors) If you are able to recollect something not mentioned in the above questions, please, don’t hesitate to write – each your idea is highly anticipated and interesting for us. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

OK 10 second summary of russia: used to be a huge monstrous communist country, now split into a smaller country. Was main opponent in US''s cold war affairs, ally in other wars. Uhh...they have nukes, hell they had the biggest nuclear (hydrogen) detonation. Chernobyl, Kierov (is that the submarine''s name?) and other little badly administrated mishaps.

Scientific achivements: First dog, first monkey, first woman, first orbital sattelite, and some others related to that. They built basically a copy of the US space shuttle, but ran out of funding (as did the rest of the Soviet Union) so it was never put to use.

Rusissian geography: North is cold.. very very cold. They had Siberia up there, where they sent civilians that they didn''t like or people living in towns they went through. That was all stalin.

Famous military squad: KJB
Living under russian rule during stalin''s time meant being watched all the time, everything you do and say. You couldn''t have any opinions on politics besides what they told you to say. Anything else and your dead or sent to Siberia (same thing)

Weapons: AK-47, the most widely used assualt rifle in the world I believe.

Thats it for now

That question is nearly as big as Russia!

In 10 seconds: cold, vodka, Communist(ex), Moscow, Siberia, caviar, tea...

and to continue: Sputnik, Soyuz, AK-47, MiG, Battle of Stalingrad, St. Petersburg, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Kruschev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin, the Tsars, Rasputin, the Kremlin, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Schnittke, Tolstoy, Nabokov, Dostoevsky, "Crime and Punishment", "The Brothers Karamozov" ...

I'm actually studying Russia in Social Studies (9). I recently saw a biography on Nicholas and Alexandra (the last crowned Tsar and Tsarista of Russia), which was very interesting but poorly organized. As we have just started the unit, I know very little about Russia, so I can pretty much summerize in point form:

Please note that the book from which we are learning is rather old, and focuses more on the former U.S.S.R.

  • Russia spans two continents, Europe and Asia. The majority of the population is on the European side.
  • There are over 100 different cultural groups in Russia.
  • Newspapers are more "common" than tv, radio or telephone.
  • Nicholas, Alexandra and their family were violently killed in 1918. Their death was somewhat of a mystery during the mid to late 1900's.


That's all I can remember at the moment. Russia is a very interesting country, and I think many more people should be aware of it's past and present.

EDIT: Oh, I believe War and Peace was written by Russian Leo Tolstoy
