Armenia for start and end with same letter could have worked too. And there are many countries ending with -stan.

Armenia does not border Italy. Russia does not border any other the other -stans. This is a "walking across borders" quiz, so they have to touch.

India's territory includes a very narrow strip between Nepal, Bangladesh, and Bhutan known as the Siliguri Corridor. Going east through this corridor takes you from the main portion of India's territory to a smaller section east of Bangladesh and Bhutan known as Northeast India. This area shares its eastern border with Myanmar.
