Asked in History of the United States, Alaska, Russia

Why did Russia sell Alaska to us?

User Avatar
Q: Why did Russia sell Alaska to us? C: Good Question! A: The Russian Empire discovered Alaska somewhere in the 1800's. At this particular time, every country in the world was extremely poor and had harsh challenges like, exploring new worlds, finding new supplies, and did not even good enough technologies. The world struggled from the Roman Empire, and the Ottoman Empire. The Russians suffered deeply from this. So, they sold Alaska to the Americans to gain more richness in their country. Today, Russia's land expansion is two to three times larger than America. Which leads them to the wealthiest country in the world. America and China are tied up with each other today. Russia has a poor economy still, because of their government. Their government overtakes thousands of homes and houses today. Russia has a harsh government in the past decade.

Asked in Ukraine, Russia, Symbolism and Symbolic Meanings, Flags

What do the colors of the Russian flag symbolize?

User Avatar
According to Wikipedia: While there are several theories as to the origin and reason for the choice of white, blue and red for the colours, none is currently accepted as universally correct. There is no official meaning assigned to the colours in Russian laws. The three colours purportedly came from the coat of arms of the Grand Duchy of Moscow, which depict Saint George wearing white (silver) armor, riding a white horse, wearing a blue cape and holding a blue shield, on a red field. According to another version, these three colours were associated with the robes of the Virgin Mary, the holy protectress of Russia. Yet another interpretation of the three colours is that the order that they are placed in reflected the Russian social system under the monarchy: white represents God, blue the Tsar and red the peasants. Another very common interpretation is the association of colours with the main parts of the Russian Empire: white thus represents Belarus ("White Russia"), blue Ukraine (or Malorossia, "Little Russia"), and red "Great Russia".

Asked in History of Europe, History of Russia, Russia, Peter the Great

How did Peter the Great change Russia?

User Avatar
Tsar Peter changed Russia by modernizing it. He built the great city of St. Petersburg (a modern and splendid city, but one created from a wasteland at an extremely heavy human cost) and adopted many European customs. Some may say he "Europeanized" the nation, causing sweeping changes across all levels of society and customs. Introduced potatoes, which became a staple of Russian diet Started Russia's first newspaper and edited the first issue himself Raised woman's status by having them attend social gatherings Ordered the nobles to give up their traditional clothes for Western fashions - They were also required to shave off their beards. Advanced education by opening a school of navigation and introducing schools for the arts and sciences Reorganized and reformed the Russian armed forces and created a modern navy modeled on European practices
