Can Russia be Identified in the Bible???

Land of Magog
Prince of Rosh or Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal
Magog is a land identified as Scythia, or Russia, by Josephus. The message is to Gog, identified as prince, of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. Rosh in Hebrew also means Chief which has caused some to translate this verse as Chief Prince rather then Chief of Rosh (Russia).
Meshech and Tubal are the sons of Japheth (Genesis 10:2). Some Georgians trace their descent from Meshech.. The name for Moscow, comes from the river Moskva which passes through the city.
The name Russia comes from a Scandinavian tribe which settled the area, known as Rus.
Tubal some trace this name to the area in Siberia known as Tobolsk,

Persia is the ancient name of Iran. Iran is a recent name for this region. Currently, Iran has both military and economic ties with Russia. Persia has also threatened to wipe out the nation of Israel, who has been gathered from the nations.
