I got 35. Worth 2 points. I doubt I'll ever do better than that. I'd like to thank... some general knowledge of geography and history, many hours spent playing the board game RISK, the biggest Russian cities quiz on JetPunk, Muslim separatists, the Georgian civil war, the oddly named building across from my cousin's dorm at university, the summer I spent in Russia in 2016, the cute Ukrainian girl I dated in Kiev, a bunch of different working girls in the hotels of Bahrain, and some random guessing. Thank you. You made these 2 points possible.

Crimea should be here, it is a part of Russia. If someones disputes it, please check the ethnical composition of the region... that will help decide whether it really belongs to Russia or not.

Kosovo and Taiwan are not 100% internationally accepted as well, but still represented on Jetpunk as independent states....

Crimea is not an internationally recognized part of Russia. Russia illegally annexed the peninsula. Illegally annexed portions of Georgia (South Ossetia and Abkhazia) are not in this quiz though Russia claims them after annexation in 2008. Russia also claims Transnistria in Moldova, but that is also not in this quiz. Crimea isn't a part of Russia any more than Alaska is...

Perhaps I explained myself poorly, most people on Crimea are ethnic Russians who would have more likely than not, voted to join with Russia. Many Crimean Tatars boycotted the referendum. The fact is, Russia controls Crimea. Whether or not that is ethical is beyond the point here, I generally try to draw the map based on what a country reasonably controls. Many people object to China's control of Tibet, but that doesn't mean it should be excluded from the map of China. I am not at all a supporter of colonial apologism, I'm not convinced how it fits here. I just don't see how disagreeing with Russia's annexation of Crimea changes anything (and I do see hypocrisy in the way the West treats these sorts of issues, although that is basically diplomacy in a nutshell).

The annexation of Crimea is not accepted by the international community. Crimea is not a province of Russia, but rather, an illegally occupied territory. Out of respect for those being persecuted by the Russian state there, please remove Crimea from this list.

I always remember Russian cities by their 'sk'. What does sk mean??
+4
Level 70
Jan 6, 2021
It is a suffix(?). For example, Novosibirsk translates into 'New Siberian'. 'Novo' means new. 'Sibir' means Siberia, but if we want to make it 'Siberian' then it becomes Sibirsk. Novo+Sibir+sk. Often times cities and places are marked like this, to show geographic placement. For example, 'Irkutsk' is on the Irkut River, Amursk on the Amur river, etc.

Hi Jiaozira,

First of all thanks you for all your fantastic quiz!

I wanted to tell you that I have made a French version of this quiz (in order to learn it in French in a funnier way) and I it turned out it has been featured in French. I am sorry I didn't ask you first. If it bother you I can delete it.

I am completely fine with that, as the (featured) translated quiz is not my creation to begin with.

It doesn't bother me if people translate my quizzes without asking first, that was standard procedure when I joined Jetpunk. Clearly you are using it to learn, too, and I fully support the use of the quiz for that :)

Mar 24, 2024
If you have Crimea and Sevastopol, then you need to include Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson; otherwise this quiz is incomplete and wrong, no matter the state of the conflict. The Russian government recognises 89 federal subjects, despite the international community generally excluding those in claimed Ukrainian territory. This quiz must either have all 89, or just 83 with a note which excludes unrecognised territories including Crimea and Sevastopol, as they come under the same category of those currently excluded.

I disagree. The territorial gains are still too recent and precarious, and I don't want to add them so early and then have to take them off again if Russia loses them in six months.
