Kommunizma in Russia?

The avalanche photo needs removing from this album. It's Pik Kommunizma which is in Tajikistan.

and neither are Ushba (Georgia) and Mkinvartsveri (Georgia)...

...and the Pamir range in general, although Mkinvartsveri ("Kazbek" if you must) appears on some maps to be on the border and no one really knows what the deal there is. You might want to call it "Mountains of the CIS" I suppose, but pay the former the former USSR countries a bit respect of their independence (;

Yeah, I forgot about Ushba. It's 100% in Georgia. Most climbers cross the border illegally from Russia to reach the mountain.

It's nowhere near Russia I'm afraid

The Pamir is also not Russia...

You've also still got some photos of Ushba which is in Georgia...
