Russian Federation

Spanning nine time zones, this vast Eurasian land is geographically the world's largest country. Emerging from its dominance and subsequent turmoil as a Soviet superpower, Russia has become powerful in international politics. Its wealth comes mainly from its oil and gas exports, and its economic strength has allowed the government to tighten state control over the media. Russia has serious children’s rights issues, including discrimination towards the LGBT and minority communities, a clampdown on freedom of association and expression, and neglect and abuse in orphanages.
