Russia - Kathleen Berton Murrell

Rich in resources such as precious stones, timber, oils and minerals, Russia has always attracted power-hungry leaders — from the Mongol leader, Genghis Khan, to the Communist leader, Joseph Stalin
Despite a dark and bloody past, Russia has maintained a vibrant culture and religion, and has produced countless noteworthy artists, writes, composers and scientists.
