    If you had a big business in Russia and wanted to ship cargo to a major port city around the Mediterranean Sea, how would you do so?

    (Hint: The Trojan War was probably fought over this particular piece of geography, not over Helen of Troy!!)

  5. Russia is huge. If Russia wants to control something ... what do you think? Who would be stronger in terms of aggression or defense? Russia or Turkey?

  7. Yes, Russia wanted (and still wants) use of the waterway -- the Dardanelles -- to be able to get products out of the Black Sea and into the Mediterranean. And they didn't (don't) want to have to pay high taxes/fees to another country or fight wars in order to do so.
