Top 30 Cities in Eastern Europe and Western Asia

The region I am calling "Eastern Europe and Western Asia" is everything east of Europe (excluding countries like Romania which have joined the EU), northeast of the Middle East (like Turkey), and west of the Far East (like Japan, China, etc).  This vast region, which includes both Russia and India and consists of approximately one-sixth both the landmass and population of the Earth, has produced a relatively small number of world-class cities.
