Yekaterinburg may be geographically in the middle of Eurasian continent, but that's doesn't mean that you could draw a line north to south, across Yekaterinburg, and then state that everthing east of the line is Europe. Have in mind, that technically, Europe is not really a continent, but a land located at western Eurasia, which had been historically refered as a contient just for cultural reasons. Of course, middle eastern countries such as Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia or Iran, are clearly not european. As for Turkey, historically it is supposed to be asian, except for the land that remains east of the Bosphorus (including part of Istambul). The correct map should be like that:

I want to say something just to bring this unnecessary discussion to an end. To my knowledge the accepted border between Asia and Europe is Mediterranean Sea-Aegean Sea-Maramara Sea-Bosphorus Strait-Black Sea-Caucasus Mountains-Caspian Sea-Ural River-Ural Mountains. So if the city Yekaterinburg is divided by the Ural River or Ural Mountains it's on the border, if it's west of those it's in Europe and if it's to the east it doesn't belong in this thread.

Let me bring to your attention that Russia with all of its cities in Asia and North America and the Pacific is a European Country that's why football teams in Russia compete in UEFA regardless if that geographical line here or there but lets say we take your argument about the line in Yekaterinburg the same can be said about the geographical line in Istanbul , you will notice that 80% of Yekaterinburg city is in Europe while only 35% of Istanbul city is in Europe , having said that both Turkey and Russia are considered European Countries while Iran is an Asian country as much as Bangladesh or Pakistan

As you can see I have taken the map from the Internet I didn't draw it as we discussed only Yekaterinburg we didn't discuss the locations of the continents

Yekaterinburg is situated on the river Iset just 40 kilometers east of the imaginary dividing line between Europe and Asia, which runs to the west in the city Pervouralsk. At this point, there is a Europe-Asia-pillar. The natural boundary is formed by the Ural Mountains. The time difference with Moscow is two hours and to central Europe five hours (or four hours during the Central European Summer Time). -->Wikipedia
