Coordinate error[edit]

I have find a bug in your latitude. It seems that is missing one character on the UTM field. For example: Moscow has the latitude set to 6179122 when it should be 16179122. Please check.

I think not. Why do you think so? Try this converter or this one, for example. - David Biddulph (talk) 18:39, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

population & ethnic groups[edit]

9.93 million Russians of 11.5 million people total equals 86.3 % (not 91.65 % as claimed), or if counted from 11.5 million: 11.5 million × 91.65 % equals 10.54 million Russians (not 9.93 million). Or share of Russians is somehow calculated from a population of 10.835 million (not from 11.5 million). And the figures should be from 2010 Census, so where does the error come from? 85.217.46.40 (talk) 10:51, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Good question. It looks that while the total population as of the 2010 Census is indeed 11.5 million, the ethnic percentages were calculated based only on the population whose ethnicity was known (roughly 10.8 million people). The 91.6% figure was thus calculated as ~9.9 mil/~10.8 mil. I've added a short note to the article to make this clear. Thanks for catching this!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); November 11, 2013; 18:27 (UTC)

The most populous city in Europe?[edit]

"the world's most populated inland city"[edit]

It isn't clear what "inland" mean, Beijing is bigger and also doesn't have access to see. -Valodzka (talk) 16:42, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Mexico City is twice as big as Moscow and very much an inland city. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.56.203.120 (talk) 14:56, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
