Spoiler: norway was hard. But I see I wasnt the only one. I pretty sure I want the only one that typed all the -stans Kazakhstan was the only one I was sure tha borders it. Had first forgotten Ukraine for a while. And had two brainfarts. Somewhere in the beginning I typed russia (sometimes I forget what quiz im doing...) and south korea, which obviously only borders northkorea

I highly doubt the border length with Poland!

Seems to me like the 432 km listed is the entire length of the border of Kaliningrad oblast, not just the part with Poland.

It recognises the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk in Ukraine, adding two, along with Abkhazia and South Ossetia in Georgia, adding two again, so Russia claims borders with 18 countries.

Perhaps after the quiz answers are reveal, please add the clarification "Border between Russia and Ukraine is based on both deJure and deFacto, consistent with current jetPunk policy, with Crimea deFacto part of Russia and breakaway provinces of the Donbass part of Ukraine"

Pray for people of Ukraine and the rank-and-file soldiers on both sides. Contribute what you can to vetted charitable causes to ameliorate suffering.
