Russia Balalaika--it descended from the domra, an instrument from the Caucasus region of Russia. There is also similarity to the Kazakh dombra, which has 2 strings, and the Mongolian topshur. MC Cartney RED SQUARE Thousands of Russians have packed Red Square to see rock legend Sir Paul McCartney perform his first-ever concert in the former Soviet republic. McCartney told

the audience, "We have come here tonight to rock Red Square", before kicking off the show with the Beatles' classic All My Loving. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who earlier gave Sir Paul a personally-guided tour of the Kremlin, was among the audience. The show marked the first time an ex-Beatle had played in the famous Moscow venue, after the band was prohibited from performing there by the former Soviet regime.

TODAY: FINISH NOTES OVER PHYSICAL FEATURES MAP TEST

Work quietly on vocabulary (10 cards) after Map Test People Russia is a multi-national state with over 185 ethnic groups.

Orthodox Christianity is Russia's largest religion with 75% of the population belonging to the Orthodox Christian Church. Literature, philosophy, classical music, ballet, architecture, painting, cinema and animation are all traditions in Russia. 16. Languages

Russian Tatar (Tartar) Ukrainian Chuvash

Bashir Mordvin Circassian Chechen Similarity to neighboring countries Russia and the boarding states all

have many different ethnic people within their borders. 17. 17. Old bromance

vs. New??? What happened to Putin? Old allies and new??? Landforms Moving west to east, there is first the eastern extension of the

North European Plain, including the plain of the Volga River, followed by the Ural Mountains. Russias territories east of the Ural Mountains are usually called Siberia, and include the West Siberian Plain, followed by an upland zone called the Central Siberian Plateau, and finally, in the Far East, a series of mountain ranges bordering the Pacific To the south there are mountains and uplands (the Caucasus and Central Asia) as well as semiarid grasslands, or steppes (in western Central Asia). The eastern extension of the North European Plain tolls low and flat from the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine and Romania, 1200 miles east to the Ural Mountains

Russia west of the Urals is often called European Russia A vast, mostly marshy lowland, about the size of the eastern United States, drains toward the north in to the Arctic Ocean Long, bitter winters mean that in the northern half of this area, has a layer of permafrost - permanently frozen soil lies just a few feet below the surface Permafrost is formed when the ground warms up during the short summer, but the top layer of material insulates against this warming effect, leaving the subsurface always frozen

In the far north lies the tundra - a treeless area, where only mosses and lichens grow because of the extreme cold, the shallow soils, and the permafrost Climate and Vegetation No inhabited place on Earth has as harsh a climate as the northern part of the Eurasian landmass occupied by Russia Siberia - winters are long and cold, with only brief hours of daylight. Summers are short and cool to hot, with long days. Precipitation is moderate, coming primarily from the west The tundra lays vast, taiga - cold-adapted coniferous forest that stretches from northern European Russia to the Pacific (and from

a global perspective, this coniferous belt also includes much of Alaska, Canada, and Scandinavia). The Globalization of Resources Extraction and Environmental Degradation Russia has the worlds largest natural gas reserves, major oil deposits and forests that stretch across the northern reaches of the continent. When the Soviet Union collapsed, many of the postSoviet states inherited nuclear facilities and even nuclear weapons. Remote areas of eastern Kazakhstan used to serve as a testing ground for Soviet nuclear devices.

Residents were sparsely distributed and no one took the trouble to protect them from nuclear radiation. A museum in Kazakhstan now displays the preserved remains of hundreds of deformed human fetuses and newborns. Kazakhstan has disarmed the nuclear warheads that it inherited from the Soviet Union and has worked with the U.S. authorities to safeguard remaining nuclear weapons material.
