Once again, Wikipedia distorts facts and misleads. The Ural River does NOT flow "through eastern Europe". It is at most a boundary between Europe and Asia, and part of it arguably flows solely through Central Asia (at its northern route where it runs to the east of the Ural Mountains, e.g. in the area of Magnitogorsk). Britannica cites the Ural River solely as a Central Asian river, not a European one. Contemporary maps and authorities DO NOT indicate the Emba River as any kind of boundary between continents. The decision by UEFA to accept Kazakhstan has no bearing on strict geographical definition of Europe, as a number of geographically non-European nations play in UEFA. You are in the wrong.

Well, there are of course quite a number of various definitions for the Europe-Asia border. Some indeed draw the border along the Ural River (which still makes at least one of the river's shores "European"); "emba+river"+europe others draw it along the Emba River, farther to the southeast, leaving the entire Ural basin in Europe. -- Vmenkov (talk) 19:47, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
