The longest railway line in the world, the Trans-Siberian Railway, connects Moscow with the Russian Far East and over to the Sea of Japan. Many branches of the railway also connect China, North Korea, and Mongolia. After the Moscow-Pyongyang Railway and the Kiev-Vladivostok Railway, the Trans-Siberian Railway is the third longest single continuous service on Earth .
The railway spans an impressive seven time zones and takes eight days to complete the journey. The railway is often associated with the main transcontinental Russian line connecting hundreds of cities, big and small, of the Asian and European parts of Russia .
Dating back to 1890, on orders from Tsar Nicholas II, the Russian Far East section of the Trans-Siberian Railway was constructed to provide the tsar and his staff the opportunity to travel in comfort across the wilderness of Siberia .
Beginning in Moscow, the main route of the railway starts at Yaroslavsky Vokzal and runs through Yaroslavl, Chelyabinsk, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Chita, and Khabarovsk to Vladivostok .
In addition, a Russian administration based in Harbin built the Chinese Eastern Railway, the Russo-Chinese
section of the Trans-Siberian Railway. This section connects China with Russia and provides a shorter route to Vladivostok .
The Trans-Siberian Railway was believed to be one of the reasons Russia lost the war in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5, seeing as how the train was only a single track train, and for that reason, could only travel in one direction, slowing down necessary supplies, troops, and ammunition needed for battle, but in World War II, the railway played a very important role, serving as the essential link between Japan and Germany .
Some of the effects of the railway include a great boost to Siberian agriculture, helping immensely with exports to Europe and within central Russia, and it also became the main source of travel for peasant-migrants coming from the Western parts of Ukraine and Russia; roughly four million peasants arrived in Siberia between 1906 and 1914 .
Today, the railway remains the most important link for transportation in Russia and nearly 30% of exports travel on its line .
The railway has also become a popular tourist destination, but most of its use still comes from its domestic passengers. A ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway is truly an unforgettable experience as you pass through gorgeous, sprawling scenery and view the unique beauty of Russia, China, and Mongolia
from the comfort of your seat .

That being said means that Mr. Vladimir Putin, The president of The Russian Federation is one of the Good Politicians we have at Present in the international Political Arena and that he is looking a head toward more advanced/civilized being for Everybody and that he is not against Nobody but with Everybody .
Hence, We urge Mr. Barack Hussein Obama and the Whole international community to wrap the case of Ukraine in terms of more political Resolutions and Bilateral Ties and try to act in a meaning of not have other rising Upheavals around the World which consequently means Global Peace .
Furthermore, I usually hear Mr. Barack Hussein Obama speaks about Democracy and that the American Society had run thru harsh/bitter situations before to gain Democracy and Freedom. I say yes, but not this way as we have now around the World. Now, Qur’an quotes that Allah Almighty nominated Talloot
as a King, which means Kingdoms and other Ruling Regimes are also accepted as long as Justice is there. Just as the case of Japan, Spain, Britain and some other Scandinavian Ruling Regimes .
Moreover, in some of these stated above States The people themselves if being asked to change this Monarchy Regimes, They would answer NO. We would rather have this way, because we know if we were to commute to non-Monarchy it would become Anarchy and we are happy this way .
After all the Tortures, Upheavals, Turmoils and killings we witnessed in the last five Years. I
” Bakr Sindi ” The Owner of this Site urge Everybody strongly around the Globe to act more responsible, Mature, rational and Righteous seeker for himself, his family and the Society as We spoke in some previous Articles how the person and the Society are rising because of lack of living Needs which is the Major cause of Turmoils .
I have so much to say, but I think the Dose of Today will make the Day, Please don’t forget me in your Prayers to God Almighty for the best of all of us Always, Have a Nice Day .
