• Weird Borders: Why Countries Have Pieces Detached

    Ever wondered why a part of Russia is detached from the rest? There are a lot of weird borders in the world, and often the reason is that a country wanted access to the sea and fight like crazy to get it. They ignore any reasonable boundary between countries in exchange for a bizarre panhandle, or sometimes even cutting off parts of other countries to create a strange border situation called enclaves, which is when a part of a country is only reachable by land through other countries. This video goes over 3 bizarre border situations including why Russia has an the kaliningrad exclave, which is a result of a chain of events in world war 1 and world war 2 in which germany had a strange border where east prussia was an exclave cut off by the danzig corridor, which actually led to world wa...

The deployment of the missiles has long been threatened by Russia as a response to United States's European missile shield. The Iskander is a truck-based theater ballistic missile system capable of carrying conventional or nuclear payloads. The system has a maximum range of 400 kilometers, making Berlin the furthest western target within range if its missiles are fired from Kaliningrad. The Iskander's warheads descend at supersonic speeds, which could potentially be used to destroy groun...

Kaliningrad (Russian: Калининград, German: Königsberg, Polish: Królewiec, Prussian:Twānksta) is a seaport and the administrative center of Kaliningrad Oblast, the Russian exclave between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea. The territory, the northern part of the former East Prussia, borders on NATO and EU members Poland and Lithuania, and is geographically separated from the rest of Russia. Originally named Königsberg, the Prussian and German town had been founded in 1255, and was then largely destroyed during World War II. Its ruins were occupied by the Soviet Army in 1945 and it was renamed Kaliningrad in 1946 in honour of Mikhail Kalinin. The former Russian name was Kyonisberg (Кёнисберг).

There is also Angola's exclave of Cabinda cut off by the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This weird border is a by product of the scramble for Africa. Finally there is Croatia, which looks like it is taking all of Bosnia and Herzegovina's coastline until you look closely and notice a strange border strip which gives Bosnia ad Herzegovina a 20 kilometer coastline and detaches a piece of croatia. This weird border is a quirk of history, where the land in the balkans changed hands multiple times. Two Corrections: Poland was RE-created after ww1 as it was previously occupied by Germany and Russia. Also the video is a bit vague on who started ww2. It was Germany. As well Danzig is used as the name for the city of Gdansk because that is what it was at the time.

Additionally Autonomous Okrugs can, but not always, be divisions of other federal subjects. The difference between Oblasts and Krais is just a historic one where Krais were once the frontiers of Russia. The federal cities are like oblasts but they only have 1 city in them. The jewish autonomous oblast is perhaps the weirdest federal subject of Russia, since less than 1% of its population is jewish and its existence is a leftover from the soviet era.

A FORMER FAMOUS GERMAN TOWN AT THE BORDERS TO THE EAST, EAST PRUSSIA----Music--OSTPREUSSISCHES REITERLIED...East prussian Rider song Königsberg (until 1946 officially: Königsberg in Preußen) was a city in the monastic state of the Teutonic Knights, the Duchy of Prussia, the Kingdom of Prussia and Germany until 1946. After being largely destroyed in World War II and occupied by the Soviet Union thereafter, the former city was renamed Kaliningrad, and few traces of the former Königsberg remain today. The literal meaning of Königsberg is 'King's Mountain'. In the local Low German dialect, spoken by many of its German former inhabitants, the name was Königsbarg (pronounced [ˈkʰeˑnɪçsbɒɐç]). Further names included Russian "Кёнигсберг" Old Prussian: Kunnegsgarbs, Knigsberg, Lithuanian: Karaliaučius and Polish: Królewiec. Königsberg was founded in 1255 on the site of the ancient Old Prussian settlement Twangste by the Teutonic Knights during the Northern Crusades, and was named in honour of King Ottokar II of Bohemia. A Baltic port, the city successively became the capital of their monastic state, the Duchy of Prussia (1525-1701) and East Prussia (until 1945). Königsberg remained the coronation city of the Prussian monarchy though the capital was moved to Berlin in 1701. It was the easternmost large city in Germany until it was captured by the Soviet Union on 9 April 1945, near the end of World War II. A university city, home of the Albertina University (founded in 1544), Königsberg developed into an important German intellectual and cultural centre, being the residence of Simon Dach, Immanuel Kant, Käthe Kollwitz, E. T. A. Hoffmann, David Hilbert, Agnes Miegel, Hannah Arendt, Michael Wieck and others. Between the thirteenth and the twentieth centuries, the inhabitants spoke predominantly German, but the multicultural city also had a profound influence on the Lithuanian and Polish cultures. The city was a publishing centre of Lutheran literature, including the first Polish translation of the New Testament, printed in the city in 1551, the first book in Lithuanian language and the first Lutheran catechism, both printed in Königsberg in 1547. Under Nazi rule, the Polish and Jewish minorities were classified as Untermensch and persecuted by the authorities. The city housed thousands of interned people of the Jewish faith who were forced to undertake tasks under the most deplorable conditions during the Second World War. By the end of the war, Königsberg was heavily damaged by Allied bombing in 1944 and during its siege in 1945. The city was captured and occupied by the Soviet Union. Its German population was expelled, and the city was repopulated with Russians and others from the Soviet Union. Briefly Russified as Kyonigsberg (Кёнигсберг), it was renamed "Kaliningrad" in 1946 in honour of Soviet leader Mikhail Kalinin. It is now the capital of Russia's Kaliningrad Oblast, an area completely cut off by land from the rest of Russia.

Originally published on December 17, 2013 Sign up for a free trial of News Direct's animated news graphics at http://newsdirect.nma.com.tw/Reuters.aspx Russia has reportedly deployed Iskander missiles in the country's westernmost region of Kaliningrad, raising concern among neighboring NATO countries. The deployment of the missiles has long been threatened by Russia as a response to United States's European missile shield. The Iskander is a truck-based theater ballistic missile system capable of carrying conventional or nuclear payloads. The system has a maximum range of 400 kilometers, making Berlin the furthest western target within range if its missiles are fired from Kaliningrad. The Iskander's warheads descend at supersonic speeds, which could potentially be used to destroy ground-based radar and interceptors of the NATO shield. According to the New York Times, an announcement released by a Russian Defense Ministry official on Monday (December 16) confirms the Iskander missiles may have already be deployed and the deployment did not violate any international agreements or treaties. Russia considers the NATO missile shield as a threat to its nuclear deterrent, even though the US insists that the missile shield is not aimed at Russia. The interim capability of the NATO missile shield in 2012 includes a high-powered X-Band radar based in Turkey and one Aegis-equipped US warship deployed in the Mediterranean. Over time, the program will expand with more anti-missile warships and two land-based missile defence sites are planned to be operational in Romania in 2015 and in Poland in 2018.

Shot with a Nikon D90 with Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 and Nikon 50mm F1.8. October 2009. Kaliningrad (Russian: Калининград, German: Königsberg, Polish: Królewiec, Prussian:Twānksta) is a seaport and the administrative center of Kaliningrad Oblast, the Russian exclave between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea. The territory, the northern part of the former East Prussia, borders on NATO and EU members Poland and Lithuania, and is geographically separated from the rest of Russia. Originally named Königsberg, the Prussian and German town had been founded in 1255, and was then largely destroyed during World War II. Its ruins were occupied by the Soviet Army in 1945 and it was renamed Kaliningrad in 1946 in honour of Mikhail Kalinin. The former Russian name was Kyonisberg (Кёнисберг).

Complete series: https://rtd.rt.com/films/the-baltic-fleet/ While the crew of corvette Soobrazitelny is painting their ship ahead of the big parade, their brothers in arms, the marines, learn to drive an armoured vehicle. The Magnitogorsk submarine, meanwhile, is navigating the Kaliningrad Sea Canal – a narrow manmade canal created back in 1901, a task that demands much skill and precision. Step on board a corvette warship and take a deep sea submarine dive with Russia's famous Baltic Fleet. These two Russian Navy vessels are facing off against each other in a tense competition to win in a military exercise. Pick your side! Russia’s Baltic Fleet was formed in 1703 under Peter the Great and is the oldest formation in the Russian Navy. Throughout its history, it has fought in many military conflicts, defending its country’s borders and perfecting its battle techniques. Today it boasts the most modern vessels, formidable weaponry and experienced seamen the Russian Navy has to offer. Meet the crews of two of its vessels, the corvette Soobrazitelny and the submarine Magnitogorsk, to learn more about life in the Baltic Fleet. Joining the crew of Magnitogorsk, commanded by Captain Vladimir Nagornov, you'll find out about the procedures required for diving and surfacing, as well as certain superstitions shared by those on board. You'll also learn about the jobs required to keep the boat operational, how a submarine locates its targets covertly and discover more about the torpedoes it carries. Aleksandr Slonov, Commander of Soobrazitelny, and his crew will take you along to a military parade, give you a guided tour of the ship and explain how the corvette's missiles are launched. With marines joining its ranks, you'll get the opportunity to accompany them to an armoured vehicle test track, where you can pick up some tips about how to handle these impressively versatile vehicles. In the end, the two crews will engage in a competition to determine which of them is the best-prepared and most skilled in military combat. Pick your side and may the best team win.

We have all watched for sometime the huge build-up of NATO forces in Poland, and most assume that this is in response to so called "Russian Aggression" but is it really? Russia has responded to each NATO or US military move of one of their own and now we have come to the ultimate Cuban Crises of the 21st Century; "The Kaliningrad Crises" the big difference is that unlike Cuba Russia has successfully deployed ICBM's into its own province called Kainingrad.
