Rubtsovsk is in south central Siberia, three time zones east of Moscow, near the point where the borders of Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan and Russia meet. It has a population of about 150,000 people and was founded in 1892. It was built on the Siberian steppe (plains), where rich black soil produces wheat, sunflowers (for cooking oil), and grazing for dairy cattle. Not far from the rugged Altai Mountains to the south where rich mineral ores are found, it became a manufacturing center in the mid-20th century.
