Russia, officially the Russian Federation, is a sovereign nation in north Eurasia. It is the largest country in the world, and the 9th highest populated nation.


With the creation of an independent Scotland, Russia was one of the first nations to recognise it and send a diplomatic mission. It also quickly recognised Padania. While Russia has positive and friendly releations with both Padania and Italy, Padania's increasingly right-wing policies, and Italy's alienation are leading to strained Italian-Russian relations. On 24 November 2015 the Turks shot down a Russian jet for violating their airspace. Putin was irate and angry at the actions of Turkey and determined to bite back, but was offered a solution by a member of his cabinet, who had seen American politicians talking about Kurdistan, who gave Putin the suggestion to back Kurdistan as a country. On the 21 December, after four days of negotiation, Putin came out of a meeting with the Syrian, Iraqi, Iranian and Kurdish leaders as they all jointly declared Kurdistan a state. Several oil and mining companies then made deals with the Peshmerga which gave them enough money to take out loans from Russian banks to buy weapons to fight with.
