Moldova from Crimea is closer than Sweden from Kaliningrad. Just not sure if we are accepting Crimea as part of Russia at this point in time

Ah, the spelling floodgates open! Seriously though, MBZD is onto something. The country name in Russian is Казахстан, and the Russian letter x can transliterate either as h or kh. In the Kazakh language it's Қазақстан, which can be transliterated as Kazakstan, Kazakhstan or Qazaqstan!

It might be very interesting to have a quiz of Countries Closest to Russia (without bordering it)- I thought that was the most challenging part of it

That's actually a misquote. She said you can see Russia from Alaska (which is true), not from her house

I swear I typed in Azerbijan about 10 times when I meant Azerbajian. You should ease up on the spelling when it's clearly meaning the same thing.
