It's a huge country filled with hundreds of cultures and pretty much every terrain on earth besides tropical. Just like in the US where hockey is bigger in the northeast than in the southwest for obvious reasons. soccer is huge all over the world so that's normal. I don't know if hockey is as big in Russia as we think. They are a very athletic minded people and Russians have their hands in most sports.
