How Big Is The Present Day Russia? by joedams: 7:03pm On Mar 19, 2017
Russia has changed borderlines since the existence of the now defunct Soviet Union and the Russian Empire that preceded it. While it may not be possible to comprehend how big Russia is by merely looking at the basic numbers, a good idea is to compare it with other nations across the globe.

Russia is almost 2 times the size of Canada. Canada is the second largest country in the world.

Russia is approximately twice the size of the United States of America.

Russia is also more than twice the size of Australia. Australia, which is considered by most people as vast because of its large barren areas, is almost half the size of present day Russia.

Russia is 2 times larger in size than China.

Russia is 6 times larger in size than India.

Russia is 32 times bigger in size than France.

Russia is 48 times bigger in size than Germany.

Russia is 70 times larger in size than the United Kingdom.

Russia is about one third the size of the entire continent of Africa.

Russia as a country has 9 different time zones!

Russia is very big indeed – that it actually spans nine different time zones! Can you even imagine how crazy it is? When people in European part of Russia are just waking up, inhabitants on the far Eastern part of Russia are already having dinner and preparing to go to sleep.

Russia is by far the largest country (by land mass) in the world!

The population of Russia is 143,393,467 as of Sunday, March 19, 2017, based on the latest United Nations estimates.
