Lakes of the East European Plain (Russian part)

The East European Plain is one of the largest plains in the world, with an area greater than four million square kilometers (Figure  1). Most of it is part of the Russian Federation. Nearly all of the Russian portion settles along the Precambrian plate. The latitudinal-zone landscape differentiation from tundra up to steppe is pronounced. The landscapes change from weak to typically continental by longitude.
