For each year, the area of Russian territory has been calculated. Its maximum increase took place in the second third of the XVII century as a result of its promotion to Siberia. Outstanding long-term process of Russians' penetration to the east in small groups can not be considered an ordinary movement of state borders and is difficult to map. In this connection, the record for Russian history growth figure (2.07 million square kilometers) is only provisionally dated on the map to 1634.

Fixation of rights to Alaska at the end of XIX century. The fixation of Alaska rights at the end of the XIX century "added" Russia another 1.5 million square kilometers. The largest losses occurred in 1917 and 1991. - The largest losses occurred in 1917 and 1991. 1.4 and 5.2 million square kilometers.

The ruler of Russia, who added the most land, is Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov. Under Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, most of the territory was lost.
