    Belgorod Region

The Belgorod Region is one of the youngest in Russia- it was founded in 1954. Besides, it is one of the RF regions bordering other countries, this time it is Ukraine. The capital of the region is the city of Belgorod located 700 km away from Moscow.

The name of Belgorod meaning white town in Russian appeared due to the great amount of limestone produced here along with iron ore. The enormous mineral reserves of the Kursk magnetic anomaly are also located here, and the region is famous for its rich black soils and farmland.

The region is one of Russia's largest producers of agricultural products such as grain, sugar, sunflowers, meat, and milk. Belgorod Region is the major livestock producer of the Central Black Earth region. Beef and dairy cattle, pigs, poultry, and sheep are all raised in the region. Dairy farming is the leading livestock sector, although natural conditions are more favorable for beef cattle.

Actually, the region could be called a rich one, but for the agriculture sector and mining industry being unbalanced. The lack of electric energy aggravates the situation.
