Is Russia Asia or Europe?

I recently added a post to the Thomo’s Hole concerning travel between Moscow and Beijing. Whilst tagging it for Mongolia and China (and Asia Pacific), I also tagged it for Russia. I then wondered in my best Russian English accent “is mother Russia part of Asia or part of Europe?”

Now I know it spreads across both continents but if I had to classify it with one term or the other, should it be Europe or Asia?
