    I am the dummy. How does Russia operate because it's composed of Administrative Regions, Republics and Oblasts but I don't understand the differences?

    Regarding Soviet Union I read that East Germany, Czechslovakia and Poland weren't officially annexed so that they could have more seats in the U.N. If this is true then why does today's Russia come under just one seat: Russian Federation?
