I had to write on this topic-
It has been said that Eastern Europe is a political region more than a physical region. Would you agree or disagree with this statement?
And this is what I got:
I agree that Eastern Europe is a political region more than a physical one because it’s been joined together as a region politically since the end of world war II, when the Soviet Union took them over as part of their empire, which unified them under the communist political system. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, this group has been looked up as a region as they have all had their own related struggles of establishing themselves publicly, politically, and economically and these struggles that give them an identity as a region are more political than physical.
But my teacher wants me to also list some points on why it wouldn't be a physical region...can I get some help on that please?
Geographically, it's joined to the rest of Europe. There are no natural borders (such as mountains, major lakes, or seas) between them. Its climate and land forms are the same as those of Western Europe.
