Russia Map
The country’s history is one of fragmentation in which its now vast geography was ruled by nomads or different tribes in the area from about 2,000 years ago, in the lower regions of the country at least, with the areas farther north largely uninhabited because of the cold. It was not until the time of the Varangians, who migrated from Scandinavia to present-day Russia, and the Slavs from Eastern Europe, that Russia began to be called ‘Rus’ in the 9th century. By the next century, Kievan Rus was developing into the largest state in Europe.
