It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who confuse Serbia with Siberia. Three days ago, The Siberian Times wrote a story about a mysterious giant crater which appeared at the ‘end of the world’ in… Siberia. And three websites (yes, 3) in only one day went on to confuse Serbia with Siberia.
For the website “Ghost Theory” (article written by Javier Ortega, an American writer living in Los Angeles) Siberia is Serbia, and Serbia is in Russia!
For the Deccan Chronicle, the largest circulated English newspaper in South India, the Siberian crater is a Serbian crater in northern Serbia as reported in the Serbian Times. Oh yes! It is the Siberian Times!
And for World’s Largest Hindi Website, bhaskar.com, Serbia is Siberia:
That’s it. For many people and “journalists” Serbia is Siberia, Serbia is in Russia and so on. But NO!. Serbia, the country I live in and promote in the world is not a region of the Russian Federation. The Republic of Serbia is an European country located in Southeastern Europe. See the map below, and please stop confusing Serbia with Siberia!
