The comparison of seismic‐hazard maps produced in different countries, or computed for the same country but at different times, is often hampered by the difficulties encountered in properly accounting for the differences among the implemented methodologies. An example of such difficulty is given by the comparison between the hazard maps computed during the Cold War period for the former Soviet Union, which includes vast regions exposed to high seismic hazard (e.g., the central Asian countries and the Caucasus region), and recent assessments carried out for the same regions following approaches developed in Western countries (e.g., Ullah et al., 2015...
