Don't know where it is to write and to which this subsection applies -Announcement: Our reference websites about the World and the World's Cultures.I would like to turn to the author, regarding The section on Russia, there are some ignorant mistakes, including the geographical plan. An example of Siberia - In geographical terms, Siberia is considered without the Far East, it is only the Western and the Eastern Siberia, on the border of the Ural mountains to the watershed of the rivers flowing into the Arctic and Pacific oceans. And only from a historical or for reference publications, the far East take as Siberia. Siberia has 7.5 million sq kilometres, (7.5-км² and more of it without the far East), the far East as accepted in Russia the Primorsky and Khabarovsk territories, Amur, Kamchatka, Magadan and Sakhalin regions, the Jewish Autonomous region, the Chukotka Autonomous district, the Republic of Yakutia

P.S. I Could not very clearly wrote example is the fact that the far East as it is considered in Russia it is not Siberia it a separate macro - region of the so-called. Only historically can be called the far East of Siberia. And if you turn Siberia and the far East in a single whole (but it is not correct), and in this case it is an area of more than 13 000 000 km2 or so. Be careful please at least in geographical terms. Channel national geography often makes such mistakes, as in many other foreigners..(The example I cited not very successful as a small amendment author made)
With Respect, Gray.
