Russia Expands into Asia

After its defeat in the Crimean War, Russia began to expand in Asia. They first won disputed territories from China, and soon after the Chinese signed treaties giving Russia lands north of the Amur River and east of the Ussuri River.

By 1864, Russian forces had defeated most of the rebel tribes and won Central Asia.
