78/100. Great quiz, though I would argue that Crimea should be yellow like the rest of Russia

Thank you! I am in agreement with you, considering Russia currently has control/administration of Crimea (and Jetpunk maps prioritise that when handling disputed territory, I've noticed). This issue has caused a great deal of controversy on my quizzes before, and I want people to focus on enjoying the quiz rather than concerning themselves on what stance I may or may not have towards Crimea.

fantastic! how do you normally add sorrounding countries to the map? for me, I usually place dots on a high-quality map and overlay it from Google Maps and add the sorrounding countries that way, but it takes a long time!

I think he cuts, and then draws out the oblasts himself

I use one or more maps as a base and then add whatever I like, be it oblasts, or surrounding countries. This map is question was used for my quiz on the Oblasts of Russia, which I reused here as it took a few hours to make and I wasn't keen on making a new map for this quiz. I always add cities last. I use Google maps as a source to place the cities, traditionally I use map features on the same latitude and longitude to approximate coordinates, although this is tricky on projections such as the one in this quiz.

I somehow got Tver even though I've never heard of it and don't think I typed it..?!

I'm assuming you typed 'Kalinin', the Stalinist-era name of the city, with the name Tver being restored in 1990. 'Tver' and 'Kalinin' are the only two type-ins possible for that answer.
