Russia, the Kievan Rus, and the Mongols: Crash Course World History #20
 
10:47
In which John Green teaches you how Russia evolved from a loose amalgamation of medieval principalities known as the Kievan Rus into the thriving democracy we know today. As you can imagine, there were a few bumps along the road. It turns out, our old friends the Mongols had quite a lot to do with unifying Russia. In yet another example of how surprisingly organized nomadic raiders can be, the Mongols brought the Kievan Rus together under a single leadership, and concentrated power in Moscow. This set the stage for the various Ivans (the Great and the Terrible) to throw off the yoke and form a pan-Russian nation ruled by an autocratic leader. More than 500 years later, we still have autocratic leadership in Russia. All this, plus a rundown of some of our favorite atrocities of Ivan the Terrible, and a visit from Putin!

The Varangian Rus 1/3
 
13:56
Generally speaking, the Norwegians expanded to the north and west to places such as Ireland, Scotland, Iceland and Greenland; the Danes to England and France, settling in the Danelaw (northern/eastern England) and Normandy; and the Swedes to the east, founding the Kievan Rus, the original Russia. However, among the Swedish runestones which mention expeditions over seas, almost half tell of raids and travels to western Europe. And in todays Sweden it has been found more Arabic coins from the Viking age then the Arabs has found themself from this era plus there has been found tonnes of viking treasures in todays Sweden which made the areas in todays Sweden to among the most riches places on earth during the viking age. So its easy due archeology to track the Varangian Rus til todays Sweden. But also, according to the Icelandic sagas, many Norwegian Vikings went to eastern Europe. . The names of Scandinavian kings are known only for the later part of the Viking Age. Only after the end of the Viking Age did the separate kingdoms acquire distinct identities as nations, which went hand in hand with their Christianization. Thus the end of the Viking Age for the Scandinavians also marks the start of their relatively brief Middle Ages. According to the Primary Chronicle, compiled in Kiev about 1100-1200 Ad, one group of Varangians was Rus' people. Their name became that of the land of Rus' this happened because one of Rus' princes, Rurik (Old Norse: Hrörekr) had been recognized by several East Slavic and Finno-Ugric peoples as their ruler, founding the Rurikid Dynasty, which later would rule over Rus' and after its fall over Russia for many centuries. Rurik first came to Staraya Ladoga in 862 and then moved his capital to Novgorod in 864, while his relative Oleg (Old Norse: Helgi) conquered Kiev in 882 and established the state of Kievan Rus', later inherited by Rurik's son Igor (Old Norse: Ingvarr). Sviatoslav was the first ruler of Rus' who is recorded in the Primary Chronicle with a name of Slavic origin (as opposed to his predecessors, whose names are ultimately derived from Old Norse). This name is however not recorded in other medieval Slavic countries. Even in Rus', it was attested only among the members of the house of Rurik, as were the names of Sviatoslav's immediate successors: Vladimir, Yaroslav, Mstislav). Some scholars speculate that the name of Sviatoslav, composed of the Slavic roots for "holy" and "glory", was an artificial derivation combining those of his predecessors Oleg and Rurik (they mean "holy" and "glorious" in Old Norse, respectively). Engaging in trade, piracy and mercenary activities, Varangians roamed the river systems and portages of Gardariki, as Rus' lands were known in Norse sagas. They controlled the Volga trade route (Route from the Varangians to the Arabs), connecting Baltic to the Caspian Sea, and the Dnieper trade route (Route from the Varangians to the Greeks) leading to the Black Sea and Constantinople. Those were the critically important trade links at that time, connecting Europe with wealthy and developed Arab Caliphates and the Byzantine Empire;via those routes most of the silver coinage came from the East to the West. Attracted by the riches of Constantinople, Rus' Varangians initiated a number of Rus'-Byzantine Wars, some of which resulted in advantageous trade treaties. At least from the early 10th century many Varangians served as mercenaries in the Byzantine Army, comprising the so-called Varangian Guard (the personal bodyguards of Byzantine Emperors). Eventually most of them, both in Byzantium and in Eastern Europe, were converted from paganism into Orthodox Christianity, culminating in the 988 Christianization of Kievan Rus'. Coinciding with the general decline of the Viking Age, the influx of Norsemen to Rus' stopped, and Varangians were eventually assimilated by East Slavs by the late 11th century.

Sometimes referred to as the predecessor of the Kievan Rus', the Rus' Khaganate was possibly founded by Swedish Vikings from Roden or Slavic tribes, whom formed a large united state through trade and war. The earls of that realm later took the title Khagan and formed the Rus' Khaganate, but when the Swedish Vikings started to conquer the ¨Eastern Riverlands¨, the Khagans were driven east, not long after, their ones great Khaganate were reduced to only the city of Rostov, untill it finally collapsed in 899 due to financiall, political and religious turmoil.

В период наивысшего расцвета занимала территорию от Таманского полуострова на юге, Днестра и верховьев Вислы на западе до верховьев Северной Двины на севере. К середине XII века вступила в состояние раздробленности и фактически распалась на полтора десятка отдельных княжеств, управляемых разными ветвями Рюриковичей. Между княжествами сохранялись политические связи, Киев продолжал формально оставаться главным столом Руси, а Киевское княжество рассматривалось как коллективное владение всех Рюриковичей. Концом Киевской Руси считается Монгольское нашествие (1237—1240), после которого русские земли перестали составлять единое политическое целое, а Киев на долгое время пришёл в упадок и окончательно утратил свои номинальные столичные функции. В летописных источниках государство называется «Русь» или «Русская земля», в византийских источниках — «Росия». Киевская Русь возникла на торговом пути «из варяг в греки» на землях восточнославянских племен — ильменских словен, кривичей, полян, охватив затем древлян, дреговичей, полочан, радимичей, северян, вятичей. Основателями Киева летописная легенда считает правителей племени полян — братьев Кия, Щека и Хорива. По данным археологических раскопок, проводившихся в Киеве в XIX—XX веке, уже в середине I тысячелетия н. э. на месте Киева существовало поселение. Арабские писатели X века (аль-Истархи, Ибн Хордадбех, Ибн-Хаукаль) позднее говорят о Куябе как о крупном городе. Ибн Хаукаль писал: «Царь живет в городе, называемом Куяба, который больше Болгара… Русы постоянно торгуют с хозаром и румом (Византией)» Первые сведения о государстве русов относятся к первой трети IX века: в 839 году упомянуты послы кагана народа Рос, прибывшие сначала в Константинополь, а оттуда ко двору франкского императора Людовика Благочестивого. С этого же времени становится известным и этноним «Русь». Термин «Киевская Русь» появляется впервые в исторических исследованиях XVIII—XIX веков. В 860 году («Повесть временных лет» ошибочно относит его к 866 году) Русь совершает первый поход на Константинополь. Греческие источники связывают его с так называемым первым крещением Руси, после которого на Руси, возможно, возникла епархия, и правящая верхушка (возможно, во главе с Аскольдом) приняла христианство. В 862 согласно «Повести Временных лет», славянские и финно-угорские племена призвали на княжение варягов. Киевская Русь объединила под своей властью обширные территории, населенные восточнославянскими, финно-угорскими и балтскими племенами В летописях государство называлось Русь; слово «русский» в сочетании с другими словами встречалось в различных написаниях: как с одной «с», так и с двойной; как с «ь», так и без него. В узком смысле под «Русью» понималась территория Киевской (за исключением древлянской и дреговичской земель), Чернигово-Северской (за исключением радимичских и вятичских земель) и Переяславской земель; именно в таком значении термин «Русь» вплоть до XIII века употребляется, например, в новгородских источниках. Глава государства носил титул великого князя, князя русского. Неофициально к нему иногда могли прилагаться и другие престижные титулы, среди которых тюркский каган и византийский царь. Княжеская власть была наследственной. Помимо князей в управлении территориями участвовали великокняжеские бояре и «мужи». Это были дружинники, назначавшиеся князем. Бояре командовали особыми дружинами, территориальными гарнизонами (например, Претич командовал черниговской дружиной), которые в случае необходимости объединялись в единое войско. При князе также выделялся один из бояр-воевод, который зачастую выполнял функции реального управления государством, такими воеводами при малолетних князьях были Олег при Игоре, Свенельд — при Ольге, Святославе и Ярополке, Добрыня — при Владимире. На местном уровне княжеская власть имела дело с племенным самоуправлением в виде веча и «градских старцев».
Kievan Rus' - Ukraine Origins (Київська Русь)
 
06:18
Kievan Rus' or more correctly Kyivan Rus' (Ukraine - Україна) - The first state to arise among the Eastern Slavs and Ukrainians. It took its name from the city of Kyiv, the seat of the grand prince from about 880 until the beginning of the 13th century. At its zenith, it covered a territory stretching from the Carpathian Mountains to the Volga River, and from the Black Sea to the Baltic Sea. The state's rapid rise and development was based on its advantageous location at the intersection of major north-south and east-west land and water trade routes with access to two major seas, and favorable local conditions for the development of agriculture. In the end, however, the state's great size led to the development of centrifugal tendencies and local interests that limited its political and social cohesion. This, and its proximity to the Asian steppes, which left it vulnerable to invasions of nomadic hordes, eventually contributed to the decline of Kyivan Rus'. In the 8th century, the territory of Kyivan Rus' was inhabited by a number of tribes who shared a common proto-Slavic language, pagan beliefs, and life-style. The ancestors of the Ukrainians included the Polianians, Siverianians, Derevlianians, Dulibians, White Croatians, Ulychians, and Tivertsians. The proto-Russian Krivichians, Viatichians, and Radimichians and the proto-Belorussian Drehovichians also lived on the lands that eventually constituted Kyivan Rus'. The Polianians were the largest and most developed of the tribes; according to the Rus' Primary Chronicle, their prince Kyi founded the city of Kyiv in the 6th century. None of the tribes, however, was able to create a viable state, and in the 9th century the Varangians from Scandinavia formed specific union with the tribes and laid the groundwork for the Kyivan Rus' state. The question of the origins of Kyivan Rus' still produces controversy among historians. The oldest, or Normanist theory rests mainly on a literal interpretation of the Primary Chronicle and stresses the role of the Varangians as the first leaders and organizers of the state. Ukrainian historians, beginning with Mykhailo Maksymovych and followed by Mykola Kostomarov, Volodymyr Antonovych, Mykhailo Hrushevsky, Dmytro Bahalii, Dmytro Doroshenko, Mykola Chubaty, and others, have generally downplayed the Varangian influence on the formation of Rus'.

Rich culture, and prosperous trade with the Byzantine Empire, made it the dominant ruler of, what is today, Western Russia. VARANGIANS Life in Rus was focused around its long rivers. The Dnieper, Don, Volga and Volkhov rivers were the trading routes that connected Scandinavia with Constantinople and Baghdad. The Varangians established control over these territories. They came to rule the Slavs, and gradually mixed with them. KIEVAN RUS A legend, written in the Primary Chronicle, says that in the middle of the 9th century, Slavic and Finno-Ugric tribes of Northern Russia tired of fighting each other and invited the Varangians to rule over them. In 862, the Varangian, Prince Rurik, established the “Rurik Dynasty,” in Novgorod that ruled over Russia for 700 years. Rurik’s successor, Oleg, founded the Kievan Rus state in 882 by connecting Novgorod with Kiev, and making the latter his new capital. The following rulers, Igor I, his widow, Olga, and son, Svyatoslav I, extended their dominance in what is now Southern Russia, fighting Byzantium, Pechenegs, and Polovtsy. In 988, Vladimir I, looking for a way to spiritually unify his people, adopted the Orthodox faith from Byzantium. The reign of Yaroslav the Wise, in the first half of the 11th century, was the highlight of Kievan power. Yaroslav enlarged the state, built fortifications, introduced a code of law, and promoted culture. DECLINE The fragmentation of the Kievan state, which followed, was only temporarily halted by Vladimir II (Vladimir Monomakh) at the beginning of the 12th century. After the rule of Yuri Dolgorukiy, in the later part of the 12th century, the importance of Kiev declined. His son, Andrey Bogolyubsky, raided Kiev. Thereafter, the Vladimir-Suzdal principality, and the Novgorod Republic became the most important states in Russian territory.

None of the tribes, however, was able to create a viable state, and in the 9th century the Varangians from Scandinavia had union with the Ukrainian tribe Polianians and laid the groundwork for the Kyivan Rus' state.

History of Russia Part 1
 
08:39
Russia Part 1 traces the origins of modern Russia and Ukraine among Slavic tribes, Viking raiders, and the medieval kingdom of Kievan Rus. Mongol hordes brought death and destruction, but under the first Tsars, a strong Russian state slowly emerged. A note on 'Ivan the Terrible' - in Russia, Ivan IV has the epithet 'Гро́зный', which means 'Great' or 'Formidable'. So why is he called Ivan 'the Terrible' in this video? Because he was evil or useless? No, it is because 'Гро́зный' was first translated into English many years ago as 'Terrible', when the word commonly meant awesome or formidable (see definitions 3 & 4 here: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/terrible?s=t). And in English, Ivan IV has been known as Ivan the Terrible ever since. Please help support Epic History TV at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/EpicHistoryTV...

Russia was then dominated by Vikings. After 250 years of Mongol supremacy, from the 13th century, Moscow became the most important power base in Russia. It was from Moscow that Ivan the Great ruled with a firm hand. BACKGROUND The name Russia comes from the group of Varangians (Vikings), called the, “Rus”. They established a state, in the middle of the 9th century in Northern Russia, around the important trade center of Novgorod. About twenty years later, their power base shifted to the Dnieper River trade route to the Greeks, where their capital Kiev was thriving. Thereafter, the state was called, “Kievan Rus”. Mostly furs, slaves, and wax, were traded for Arabian silver, as well as Byzantine luxury goods. The Varangian princes formed the ruling class, but they soon assimilated with the local Slavs and the Finns. STATE AND SOCIETY The state of Kievan Rus was a loose confederation of principalities whose leaders were princes (Knyaz). They were constantly in dispute over the supreme title, Grand Prince of Kiev (Veliky Knyaz). Each prince was supported by a retinue (druzhina) of loyal soldiers (druzhinniks). The senior members of this fellowship were called, “boyars,” and they formed an advisory board called the, “Duma”. Unusually, the towns of Novgorod and Pskov were governed by a wide assembly of merchants called “Veche”. The Veche was so powerful, it could name, and depose, princes. When the Mongols conquered Russia, the most important center was not Kiev, but Vladimir, whose prince was superior to others and named himself the Grand Prince. Under the Mongol rule, princes retained their dominions but were obliged to pay tax to the Mongols. The title, “Grand Prince,” thereafter shifted to the ruler of Moscow. CULTURE Russians were deeply influenced by Byzantine culture and the Orthodox faith. Mentality, customs and art, were all adopted from Byzantium.
The Varangian Rus 2/3
 
07:27
Generally speaking, the Norwegians expanded to the north and west to places such as Ireland, Scotland, Iceland and Greenland; the Danes to England and France, settling in the Danelaw (northern/eastern England) and Normandy; and the Swedes to the east, founding the Kievan Rus, the original Russia. However, among the Swedish runestones which mention expeditions over seas, almost half tell of raids and travels to western Europe. And in todays Sweden it has been found more Arabic coins from the Viking age then the Arabs has found themself from this era plus there has been found tonnes of viking treasures in todays Sweden which made the areas in todays Sweden to among the most riches places on earth during the viking age. So its easy due archeology to track the Varangian Rus til todays Sweden. But also, according to the Icelandic sagas, many Norwegian Vikings went to eastern Europe. The names of Scandinavian kings are known only for the later part of the Viking Age. Only after the end of the Viking Age did the separate kingdoms acquire distinct identities as nations, which went hand in hand with their Christianization. Thus the end of the Viking Age for the Scandinavians also marks the start of their relatively brief Middle Ages. According to the Primary Chronicle, compiled in Kiev about 1100-1200 Ad , one group of Varangians was Rus' people. Their name became that of the land of Rus' this happened because one of Rus' princes, Rurik (Old Norse: Hrörekr) had been recognized by several East Slavic and Finno-Ugric peoples as their ruler, founding the Rurikid Dynasty, which later would rule over Rus' and after its fall over Russia for many centuries. Rurik first came to Staraya Ladoga in 862 and then moved his capital to Novgorod in 864, while his relative Oleg (Old Norse: Helgi) conquered Kiev in 882 and established the state of Kievan Rus', later inherited by Rurik's son Igor (Old Norse: Ingvarr). Sviatoslav was the first ruler of Rus' who is recorded in the Primary Chronicle with a name of Slavic origin (as opposed to his predecessors, whose names are ultimately derived from Old Norse). This name is however not recorded in other medieval Slavic countries. Even in Rus', it was attested only among the members of the house of Rurik, as were the names of Sviatoslav's immediate successors: Vladimir, Yaroslav, Mstislav). Some scholars speculate that the name of Sviatoslav, composed of the Slavic roots for "holy" and "glory", was an artificial derivation combining those of his predecessors Oleg and Rurik (they mean "holy" and "glorious" in Old Norse, respectively). Engaging in trade, piracy and mercenary activities, Varangians roamed the river systems and portages of Gardariki, as Rus' lands were known in Norse sagas. They controlled the Volga trade route (Route from the Varangians to the Arabs), connecting Baltic to the Caspian Sea, and the Dnieper trade route (Route from the Varangians to the Greeks) leading to the Black Sea and Constantinople. Those were the critically important trade links at that time, connecting Europe with wealthy and developed Arab Caliphates and the Byzantine Empire;via those routes most of the silver coinage came from the East to the West. Attracted by the riches of Constantinople, Rus' Varangians initiated a number of Rus'-Byzantine Wars, some of which resulted in advantageous trade treaties. At least from the early 10th century many Varangians served as mercenaries in the Byzantine Army, comprising the so-called Varangian Guard (the personal bodyguards of Byzantine Emperors). Eventually most of them, both in Byzantium and in Eastern Europe, were converted from paganism into Orthodox Christianity, culminating in the 988 Christianization of Kievan Rus'. Coinciding with the general decline of the Viking Age, the influx of Norsemen to Rus' stopped, and Varangians were eventually assimilated by East Slavs by the late 11th century.

Russia: Engineering an Empire
 
44:31
At the height of its power this empire stretched across 15 times zones, incorporated nearly 160 different ethnicities, and made up one sixth of the entire world's landmass. An Empire that started as a few small principalities was shaped into an indomitable world power by the sheer force of its larger than life rulers. From the beginning, these visionaries engineered Russia's empire, adapting foreign technologies to seize power, capture territory, increase trade, and build greater and grander symbols of Russia's imperial progress. But building the infrastructure of this Empire came at an enormous price - Russia's history is littered with the bodies of the serfs and slaves who built her crowning achievements. The bigger the Empire grew the more resources and human life it consumed. For Russia's peasants, constructing a modern Russian Empire didn't mean progress; it meant more tax, more war, more work - and death. As Russia entered the 20th century, her expansion reached critical mass as her iron willed rulers pushed progress at an unsustainable pace and her population reacted in a revolution that changed the history of the world forever. From the Moscow Kremlin, to the building of St. Petersburg, to the Trans-Siberian railroad, this episode will examine the architecture and infrastructure that enabled the rise and fall of the Russian Empire.

As the West Slavs settled in Eastern Europe, and the South Slavs settled in the Balkans, the East Slavs inhabited the forests and steppes of present-day Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. PREHISTORY The first humans arrived in today’s territory of Russia around 40,000 BC. Remains of some of their earliest settlements have been found in the Kostenki archeological site, near Voronezh, and the Sungir site, near Vladimir. SCYTHIANS, GOTHS, HUNS, KHAZARS AND FINNO-UGRIC PEOPLES In the 5th century BC, the famous Greek historian, Herodotus, wrote about the Scythians of the Black Sea. They probably originated from the Altai region of Siberia and Mongolia, and inhabited the steppes of today’s Ukraine and Southern Russia. The Scythians were fierce fighters, also making occasional raids into Europe. During the Great Migration around 200 AD, the Goths plundered Russian territory from the Black Sea all the way to the west. Around 400 AD, the mighty Hunnic Empire stretched from the Ural Mountains to the Rhine River. It was ruled by the legendary leader, Attila the Hun. From the 7th to the 11th centuries, much of Southern Russia was dominated by the Khazars, who, probably, also ruled over some Slavic tribes. Present-day Northern Russia was inhabited by Finno-Ugric peoples, who did not have states, but traded actively with Scandinavians, and later also with East Slavs. SLAVS The direct roots of Russian people go back to the Slavs. Their origins are not clear. According to the most common theory, the West Slavs (Poles, Czechs), the South Slavs (Serbs, Bulgarians), and the East Slavs (Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians), all originate from the vast swamplands, called Pripet Marshes, that can be found in current Belarus and Northern Ukraine. EAST SLAVS The East Slavs arrived in two waves: One moved from Kiev to present-day Suzdal, and the other from Polotsk to the Novgorod region. These people inhabited the steppes, and the woodland belt of Central Russia, and, from the 7th to the 9th centuries, formed the majority of the Western Russian inhabitants. The East Slavs were tall, fair-skinned hunters and farmers who lived in log houses, spoke Slavonic languages, and slowly began to adapt to Christianity.

Rus' Raiders plundered the suburbs and slaughtered its inhabitant, while constantinople garrison unable to repel the raiders. Eastern roman navy also absence in the bosphorus due to fighting Abbassid navy and Norman fleet (Francizied Viking) in the eastern Mediterranean. Raiding activity continued until 4 August 860 CE, Rus' raiders move to Sea of Marmara and sack monasteries in the Prince Islands belonging to the former Patriarch. The Rus' viking eventually retreated to their homeland, probably due to weather conditioin or the return of the Emperor along its main troops. The rus' raid in 860 CE was the first raid toward eastern roman capital and saw the weakness of the defence of Tsargrad (Constantinople). Several Rus' states occasionally raid Tsargard which lasted until 11th century. Music : Adam Skorupa - Round Shield Invader Ancestors Legacy Soundtrack

History of Russia Part 2
 
10:23
Epic History TV's history of Russia continues! Emerging from the Time of Troubles, Russia fights back against foreign invaders, as Prince Pozharksy and Kuzma Minin liberate Moscow from Polish forces. Russia's assembly, the Zemsky Sobor, turns to a 16 year old boy, Mikhail Romanov, for leadership. He and the early Romanovs oversee a turbulent period of war, reform and rebellion: all Russian peasants are made serfs by the terms of the Sobornoye Ulozheniye, while Patriarch Nikon's religious reforms split the Russian Orthodox Church between Reformers and Old Believers. The Thirteen Years War (1654 – 67) against the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth brings Smolensk and Kiev under Russian control, as Cossack renegade (and folklore hero) Stenka Razin leads revolt in the south. In 1689, Peter the Great seizes power from his half-sister, Princess Regent Sofia. Peter is determined to make Russia a great European power, and travels to the Dutch Republic and England to study the latest developments in science and shipbuilding. He wages successful wars against the Ottoman Empire, acquiring the Black Sea port of Azov, and defeats Sweden in the Great Northern War, winning one of Russia's most famous victories at Poltava in 1709. He builds a new capital, St.Petersburg, as well as a Russian navy, and reforms education, industry and government. Not without internal opposition, Peter's boundless energy transforms Russia. The second half of Russia's 18th century is dominated by female rulers. Under the reign of Empress Anna Ioannovna, Vitus Bering charts the coast of Alaska and discovers the Aleutian Islands. Empress Elizabeth leads Russia into the Seven Years War against Frederick the Great, with Russian victory at Kunersdorf in 1759, and oversees construction of St.Petersburg's stunningly lavish and expensive Winter Palace. While Peter III falls victim to a conspiracy by his wife Catherine and army officers, leading to his own death, and the reign of Catherine the Great..

Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[10] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[11] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the US state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[12] Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. The nation's history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD.[13] Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire,[14] beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium.[14] Rus' ultimately disintegrated into a number of smaller states; most of the Rus' lands were overrun by the Mongol invasion and became tributaries of the nomadic Golden Horde.[15] The Grand Duchy of Moscow gradually reunified the surrounding Russian principalities, achieved independence from the Golden Horde, and came to dominate the cultural and political legacy of Kievan Rus'. By the 18th century, the nation had greatly expanded through conquest, annexation, and exploration to become the Russian Empire, which was the third largest empire in history, stretching from Poland in Europe to Alaska in North America.[16][17] Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Soviet Union, the world's first constitutionally socialist state and a recognized superpower,[18] which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II.[19][20] The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first spacecraft, and the first astronaut. The Russian Federation became the successor state of the Russian SFSR following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, and is recognized as the continuing legal personality of the All-Union state.[21] The Russian economy ranking as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world,[22] have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally.[23][24] The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[25] Russia is a great power and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a member of the G8, G20, the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Eurasian Economic Community, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and is the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
