Russia is an impressive land with an impressive history. The largest country on the planet, its lands cross several time zones and stretch from Europe all the way to the edge of North America. Across its vast expanse can be found mountains, deserts, arctic tundra, vast forests, marshlands and massive plains. Its population is large, and at around 145 million is made up of numerous cultures and religions. While Russian is the primary language of the people, there are around 100 other languages spoken in a country which is home to over 150 ethnicities.
Historically, Russia has experienced a rather turbulent, if impressive past. Growing to become one of the largest empires in the world, the First World War led to the collapse of country as revolution swept through. Several decades as part of the Soviet Union saw Russia maintain a powerful standing in the world, but that too eventually crumbled. In the 1990s, terrible financial problems and political instability saw Russia’s standing in the world drop markedly. The past decade has seen the country stabilize somewhat under the watch of Vladimir Putin. Under Putin, the country has followed a conservative line, emphasizing traditional values and following policies reminiscent of the Soviet-era.
This ‘new’ Russia definitely has the look of the ‘old’ Soviet Union to anyone on the outside. Military buildups, resumption of nuclear bomber flights, aggressive and expansionist foreign policies and the resumption of strong anti-Western sentiments all mark today’s Russia under Putin. In a way, Russian leadership has taken the directionless ship that was Russia in the 1990s and steered it on a new and clear course. This has led to the resumption of butting heads with Western nations, something which was so common over 20 years ago.
While the evening news seems to always have a story or two about what Russia is doing next in the world, it’s what’s happening inside the country that often goes unnoticed. Here, government laws and decrees can seem harsh and short-sighted. Nonetheless, in an effort to impose order and help shape Russia in the best way they see possible, government officials slap a number of bans on various activities and goods – for the good of the people. On the outside looking in, these can look like the act of a dictator but a stream of polls constantly show the Russian people are in support of the government and the direction it is taking the country.
