Trace the Coast of Europe with a Map

Starting from the top right corner, trace the outline of the European continent anticlockwise by correctly naming each country along the way.
External territories and micronations are included!
We are considering the Caspian Sea to be a lake, and therefore irrelevant to this quiz

Crimea is part of Ukraine not Russia. Russia is illegally occupying it. A significant majority of the world's countries have made it clear that they recognise that Crimea is a part of Ukraine.

Russia currently has control over the Crimean peninsula (as well as de facto control over parts of Eastern Ukraine). I am still not sure where Jetpunk gets their maps from, but the source seems to value depicting actual control over specific regions, rather than honouring sentiments (this goes for the Crimean situation as well as the border dispute in Kashmir, among other minor disputes). I agree with this, to the point in which I have drawn dotted lines to represent other territories such as Abkhazia or North Cyprus which are outside of the authority of the countries which the international community agrees as controlling said territory.

That being said, if you wish you can simply type 'Ukraine' three times to complete its coastline on the Black Sea. You are never forced to type 'Russia' in order to complete Crimea.

it is not compliant with the international law though.

With that reasoning Nazi Germany's annexation of the "Sudetenland/Czechoslovakia" would have been ok, too since mostly Germans were living there and they wanted to become part of the German Reich.

This is really not how it works.

That's not to mention that the "people wanted to be Russian" thing was determined through an illegally organised referendum where Russian military personel with loaded rifles stood outside each polling station. Hardly the ideal setup for a true representation of people's preferences.

funny thing that I met a girl from Crimea when I lived in Poland and she says russians are occupying her homeland and she is saving money to relocate her mother to Poland as well... maybe that's the reason why people speak russian there and russian flags are seen, because normal people ran away from aggressors

It would also be helpful to specify how you're dividing Europe and Asia. No matter what you decide, people will complain - but most cartographers draw the line north of Georgia and Azerbaijan, through the Caspian Sea, and include a small chunk of westernmost Kazakhstan.
+3
Level 70
Jan 25, 2021
Perhaps I will solve this with a caviat specifying the Caspian Sea is considered a lake here. I do agree that the Northeastern bit of Kazakhstan is European though I hope any other definition will be clear to people when the quiz stops at Russia (rather than Georgia, that is).

The Dutch coastline really looks decidedly odd to me. Noord Holland, in particular, seems to have been shaved completely off the continent. I can find Europe outline images on Google that look exactly like the map that's been used here. But I can also find lots and lots of better ones...

It indeed looks hardly recognisable. A big part of that has to do with the fact that all the islands are left out. Plus that flevoland somehow completely merged with the rest of the country and the entire ijsselmeer is gone, seems completely filled in from the afsluitdijk down. (It is those things that make it seem noord-holland is gone I believe. That part is actually still there, but it is hard to recognise it as such, since all the rest is so extremely altered)

Gibraltar under control of the United Kingdom (and therefore it is also a type-in). I believe that all territories should be included by default on a quiz like this, unless otherwise specified, as they are part of the overall coastline.

I cannot believe you considered Crimea as Russian. What is the criterion? if you are considering the formal borders recognized by international order you should put Crimea as Ukraine. This is incoherent.

Perhaps the solution is to include a caveat. Occupied by is not the same as belongs to imo. Maybe something like "who currently controls the coastline"

A good example might be, if I break into your house and barricade it so you can't get in. It is not my house, it is still your house.

So if you use who controls it. everyone will be happy. (well happy might not be a great choice of words, but you know what I mean. You could follow the conventions you wish to and other people won't have something to complain about/get offfended.)

+1
Level 70
Mar 31, 2024
It's a good choice of wording to specify 'who controls it' and leave it at that. My big problem is that the people who are the most reactionary are unfortunately the least likely people to read caveats or even previous comments, but I will likely use these words or something similar going fowards.

Level 66

It's been 10 years. Who controls the taxes, movement of goods + people, and borders.

It look like the Southeast portion of Ukraine is now also Russia. Has been for 2+ years now.

Like it or not, that's humanity, that's the world, that's reality.

Anything else seems like propaganda imo. Or living in a fictional world created to further a politician's interests. I'm not here to be a mouthpiece for politicians or special interest groups. If anyone wanted Ukraine to retain their sovereignty, more intervention was required.

This is the way it is. This is why people don't vote for what you believe is "good". Arguing with realism is foolish.
