I probably did not express myself correctly. What I meant, for example, is
that this article in Great Soviet Encyclopaedia (it is in Russian, but you
can easily estimate the amount of information it contains) 


would be good for the first two lines of this article


but to get a decent article (not a stub) I had to use additional material,
including topographic maps. In principle, I could just make a two-line
stub, it would be useful in any case.
