Would be could if we had a map that specifically depicts the geographical region or political region. - PietervHuis (talk) 23:36, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

North Caucasus is in European Russia[edit]

Why are people reverting the inclusion of the fact that the North Caucasus is part of Europe? 94.192.38.247 (talk) 17:50, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Because you are deleting other description and adding a misquoted definition from a newspaper. - 7-bubёn >t 18:37, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I am describing the region accurately and comprehensively and using a source from the BBC which verifies the information, if not in a verbatim way, in a logical way. I'll redit so as not to delete the other description. 94.192.38.247 (talk) 19:02, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

My Concise Atlas of the World, Second Edition (National Geographic, 2008) also has the Caucasian region claimed by Russia lying north of the "commonly accepted division between Asia and Europe". I don't believe putting that it is "part of Russia" is neutral; Russia claims the area, but so does the Caucasus Emirate and the Chechen Republican government in exile.
