The vast lands of present Russia were home to disunited tribes who were variously overwhelmed by invading Goths, Huns, and Turkish Avars between the third and sixth centuries C.E. The Iranian Scythians populated the southern steppes, and a Turkic people, the Khazars, ruled the western portion of these lands through the 8th century.
The northern part of Russia together with Novgorod retained some degree of autonomy during the time of the Mongol yoke and was largely spared the atrocities that affected the rest of the country.
Population is densest in the European part of Russia, in the Ural Mountains area, and in the south-western parts of Siberia; the south-eastern part of Siberia that meets the Pacific Ocean, known as the Russian Far East, is sparsely populated, with its southern part being densest.

 Development, Review, and Implementation of Building Energy Codes in Russia:
Beginning in 1999, regions of Russia began en masse to adopt codes based on the model.  Already such codes have been adopted and have entered into force in eight regions of Russia.
At present a final draft of a new federal code for thermal performance of buildings has been drafted and is being reviewed at the level of Gosstroi.  This draft code, in terms of its basic ideology, is very similar to codes in the city of Moscow and the model regional code.
The novelty of the approach in the creation of regional thermal-performance codes that provide for an energy-saving effect equivalent to the effect intended by federal codes, lies in the fact that under regional codes, designers make use of options that are not available under the federal thermal-engineering code.
