The Siberian tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) is also known as the Amur, Manchurian, Altaic, Korean, North China or, Ussuri tiger. Though it once ranged throughout Western and Central Asia and eastern Russia it is now completely confined to the Amur-Ussuri region of Primorsky Krai and Khabarovsk Krai in far eastern Siberia, where it is now protected. It is the biggest of the eight recent tiger subspecies and the largest living felid.[2] Genetic research in 2009 revealed that the current Siberian tiger population is almost identical to the Caspian tiger, a now extinct western population once thought to have been a distinct subspecies, which was extinct just in the wild before it was completely wiped out.[3]

Khabarovsk (Russian: Хаба́ровск, Russian pronunciation: [xʌˈbarəfsk]) is the administrative center and the largest city of Khabarovsk Krai, Russia. It is located some 30 km from the Chinese border. It is the second largest city in the Russian Far East, after Vladivostok. The city became the administrative center of the Far Eastern Federal District of Russia in 2002. Population: 579,000 (2005 est.).

The city lies at the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, about 800 kilometers (497 mi) north of Vladivostok and is accessible from there by an overnight train running along the Trans-Siberian railway. Rail distance from Moscow is 8,523 kilometers (5,296 mi).

Khibiny Mountains and the town of Kirovsk, Kola Peninsula

Khibins (Russian: Хиби́ны [xʲiˈbʲinɨ]) is one of the two main mountain ranges of the Kola Peninsula, Russia.

The massif is of oval shape of about 1,300 sq.km. and occupies the central part of the peninsula at a relative elevation of 900-1000 m above the surrounding plain. The highest point (Mount Yudychvumchorr) is 1191m. The peaks are of plateau type, with steep slopes, with glaciers, icefields and snowfields in some places. The overall terrain is alpine tundra.

About 5 km from the easternmost point of Khibins, the second massif, Lovozero Massif is situated.

The massif is seismically active.

The massif is extremely rich in various minerals, mainly apatite and nepheline ores.

By the foot of the massif the cities of Apatity and Kirovsk are situated.
