The most interesting part of the map is how Uzbekistan, a former Soviet Republic, was visited by the Kerry but not Lavrov, even though almost all the surrounding countries were visited by Lavrov.

It's also seems to show that while the U.S. does not give much of a shit about Africa, Russia gives even less. Actually, the whole Southern Hemisphere is more grey than blue, purple, or red.
