What is the longitude south and latitude west of Russia?

Latitude is the coordinate for which you have a choice of north or south. The Russian Federation extends over a range of 46.4 degrees of latitude. None of it is south latitude. Longitude is the coordinate for which you have a choice of east or west. The Russian Federation extends over a range of 162.8 degrees of longitude. Only 10.2 degrees of that span is west longitude. 152.6 degrees of it is all east longitude. In only ten short words, the question strikes out in at least four major ways ... undoubtedly some sort of record.
