Siberia isn't really "northern and eastern region of Russia", just the area east of the Urals. Northern Asia, yes. But just Eastern Russia. The southernmost parts of Siberia are at the same latitude as Central Germany and noticeably south of Moscow.

Agree! Aral Sea (what's left of it) is split between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

Well, actually Rostov is a small city close to Moscow, whereas the city referred here is Rostov-on-Don, named for obvious reasons...

I agree with accepting Kaliningrad alone, but the full answer should be Kaliningrad exclave or Kaliningrad oblast.

At the start of the Soviet era, until 1924, Leningrad was called Petrograd.

It was called Sankt Peterburg when it was founded in 1703. The name was changed to Petrograd in 1914 because it sounded too German and Russia was at war with Germany at the time. In 1924, it was renamed Leningrad for obvious reasons. In 1991, the original name Sankt Peterburg (Saint Petersburg) was restored. By the way, the oblast around it is still called Leningrad Oblast.

Jerry probably knows all that. All he was trying to say is that the city had two names during the communist era, and that Petrograd should at least be accepted.

Petrograd is already a type-in for St Petersburg though - can't really be an answer to both.
