Good idea! But your regular reminder that Crimea is legally in Ukraine. Donetsk and Luhansk are too (as rightly recognised here) despite Russia's illegal and unrecognised annexation. No blame to the person who set the quiz, but it's the overall ruling on this site that is bizarre and wrong.

I only follow JetPunk standards, no political bias here. This site generally follows factual situations rather than international recognition. It's the reason Taiwan is recognized as a country but Palestine isn't.

Regarding Donetsk and Luhansk, Quizmaster has made it clear that no changes will be made until the war is over.
