I am trying to establish the birth origins for somebody who has listed their birth nationality as Russia, Resident of Reya. Can anyone tell me what part of the Russian Empire this was? Thank you

Thank you to the person who emailed me suggesting that it could be Riga. Have checked the original document and think they are right, and the transcriber got the spelling wrong.

How do you know about this place?  Was it written somewhere?  If so, it would be better to see the original document (In Russian or so) with that name listed.  Also what years your ancestor lived in that place?  That may help.
