Shipping to Russia

The Russian Federation (unofficially Russia) is the successor state of the Soviet Union, which lasted from 1917 – 1991. The country is partly located in Europe and partly in Asia. However, 70 % of the population lives in Europe. Russia is the 9th biggest country in the world by population and the biggest country by area. The capital Moscow is the largest city and biggest economic center. Russia’s currency is the Russian Ruble (₽).

Russia shares borders with fourteen countries. Among those countries are Norway, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Mongolia and North Korea. Due to the immense size, the climate ranges from arctic to moderate. Agriculture is possible on only 32 % of the country’s surface. The remaining surface is permanently frozen or polluted.

The many natural resources form an important base for the economy. Russia mainly exports petroleum, natural gas and timber products. That is why, the economy reacts strongly to the international oil market.
