    I thought the USSR did not exist anymore. Which would make R5CC (Moscow) in the european Russia, no?

    Please explain your answer in 20 words or less. :)

    Yes. :)

    The Russian Federation is the legal successor to the USSR, if that helps.

    yes, R5CC would count as European Russia. How does USSR figure into this?

    Because that was "correct" answer as supplied by the QRZ 25th Anniversary Quiz on the home page.

    I responded "European Russia" and was told that was incorrect.

    Whoever is putting that quiz together needs to do a little bit better in the research area. There have several wrong answers.
    But it's only a quiz...there are much better things to get bent about.

    Why 20 words or less? Are we paying by the electron now?
