I’d like to start my composition with the words that Russia is a really great country. It is proved1 by the history of it,  its power in the modern world. The history of Russia dates back to  the 9-th century when Kiev, Vladimir and Novgorod were united with and formed an ancient Russia. In 988 it became a powerful Christian country. It was ruled by Tsar many years, but in 1917 after the revolution it bacame a communist country. Many countries were united together and it was named the USSR. But in 1991 this great country was broken up. There were a lot of historic events in the past, many wars which had ruined Russia but it was rebuilt again.

Its total area2 is about 17 million square kilometers and it is no doubt that Russia is one of the largest countries in the world. It occupies3 the eastern part of Europe and the northern part of Asia. Can you imagine that it is washed by4 twelve seas and three oceans. Among them are the Pacific Ocean, the Arctic Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean.The Barents Sea,  the White Sea, the Black Sea,  the Okhotsk Sea, the Baltic Sea and others wash the country too. Russia boders onBelarus, Ukraine, the Baltic States in the west, on Mongolia, China in the east, on Norway and Finland in the north-west. It has a sea border6 with the USA.

The full name of the country is the Russian Federation. The capital is Mosсow. This city is densely populated7. More than 10 million people live there.

There are many rivers, lakes in this country. The longest river not only in Russia but in Europe is Volga. The Ob, the Lena and the Yenisei are the longest rivers in Asia. The deepest and purest lake on the earth is  Baikal.

The landscape is varied. There you can find forests, deserts, mountains, valleys.The biggest mountain chains8 are the Caucasus, Urals and the Altai. Russia is so powerful, perhaps, because it is rich in natural resources9. You will find desposits10 of gold and silver, iron and oil, gas and other riches. Most of the county’s natural wealth11  is concentrated in Siberia.

The head of the country is the President. And it can be called a presidedtial republic. It is one of the leading powers in the world. The Duma is the legislative power.

The current population12  of Russia is 145 million people. The major part of them live in the European part of the country. It is highly industrialized13 country with great number of plants and factories. Russia attracts14 tourists. There are a lot of ancient and modern buildings, monuments, colourful landscapes, museums and galleries, parks and streets. Millions of people from all over the world15 visit this country every year.

It is difficult to describe people. They are so different, but most of them are patriotic, hospitable16, like to have fun. They have their own values17, but appreciate18 and keep up traditions and customs of their country.
