Russian torchbearers started in October the history’s longest Olympic torch relay ahead of Winter Games in Sochi. The relay took the flame across the country through all 83 of its regions, including extreme locales such as Chukotka, the remote region in Russia’s Far East, the turbulent North Caucasus, and even Russia’s European exclave Kaliningrad.
