The Russian Federation has been an independent state since 26th December 1991 and is a Permanent Security Council member of the United Nations. It is a loosely knit collection of republics including much of what was, until 1991, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Unresolved tensions exist between the central government and many of these regions.
The world's largest state, Russia was the dominant member of the USSR, which many people saw as the modern inheritor of the expansionist policies of the Tsars. With the collapse of the USSR, Russia inherited the Soviet Union's permanent seat on the UN Security Council. The tri-colour of Russia dates back to the time of Tsar Peter the Great who traveled in Europe and spent some time in Amsterdam and Leiden. The colours and design of the Dutch flag were adopted and rearranged to form a white-blue-red pattern.BUY NOW
