Russia occupies a large territory. It stretches almost 10,000 (ten thousand) kilometres from east to west and nearly 5,000 (five thousand) kilometres from north to south. Its population is 150,000,000 (one hundred and fifty) million people.

From spring till autumn the sun never sets over Russia: in Kaliningrad people see it sitting in the Baltic, while in Kamchatka it rises out of the Pacific Ocean at the same time. People in our country see the New Year eleven times in one night.

Now, dear friends, let`s have a look at and the biggest region of Russia,
coloured in green, it is our Land called Sakha-Yakutia.
The Sakha (Yakutia) Republic is a federal subject of Russia. Population: 958,528,[7] consisting mainly of ethnic Yakuts and Russians.

Sakha-Yakutia is the largest subnational governing body by area in the world at 3,103,200 km2 (1,198,200 sq mi). (just smaller than India which covers an area of 3,287,240 km2). It has a population of fewer than one million inhabitants. Its capital is the city of Yakutsk.

Sakha is known for its climate extremes, with the Verkhoyansk Range being the coldest area in the northern hemisphere. Winters here are extremely cold. Some of the lowest natural temperatures ever recorded have been here. The Northern Hemisphere's Pole of Cold is at Verkhoyansk, where the temperatures reached as low as −67.8 °C (−90.0 °F) in 1892, and at Oymyakon, where the temperatures reached as low as −71.2 °C (−96.2 °F) in 1926.
