Sakhalin Island For Joe
Sakhalin island keeps changing who it belongs to between Japan and Russia as it's between both of them.
In 2002, the population of Sakalin island consisted of over 80% of Russians followed by 5.4% Koreans, 4.3% Ukrainians, 1.3% Tartars and quite a lot of nationalaties less than 1%!
There are 580,000 people altogether, as of 2005.
To the right is a very basic map of Saklain island. Below is a lovely beach there.
