I’d like to start my composition with the words that Russia is a really great country. It is proved1 by the history of it, its power in the modern world. The history of Russia dates back to the 9-th century when Kiev, Vladimir and Novgorod were united with and formed an ancient Russia. In 988 it became a powerful Christian country. It was ruled by Tsar many years, but in 1917 after the revolution it bacame a communist country. Many countries were united together and it was named the USSR. But in 1991 this great country was broken up. There were a lot of historic events in the past, many wars which had ruined Russia but it was rebuilt again.
