Russia:

Climate:

The enormous size of Russia and the remoteness of many areas from the sea result in the dominance of the humid continental climate, which is prevalent in all parts of the country except for the tundra and the extreme southeast. Mountains in the south obstruct the flow of warm air masses from the Indian Ocean, while the plain of the west and north makes the country open to Arctic and Atlantic influences.

Language:

Russia's 160 ethnic groups speak some 100 languages.[8] According to the 2002 census, 142.6 million people speak Russian, followed by Tatar with 5.3 million and Ukrainian with 1.8 million speakers.[185] Russian is the only official state language, but the Constitution gives the individual republics the right to make their native language co-official next to Russian.

Currency:

The Russian ruble, often denoted by RUB, is the name of the currencies of the Russian Federation and Belarus. The ruble has been the Russian unit of currency for several centuries, and its name stems from the Russian verb rubit, meaning, "to chop."
