A world language
Russian is very closely related to Belorussian and Ukrainian. While it’s written using the Cyrillic alphabet, its appearance is unique. Of the 160 million people who speak Russian as their native tongue, 130 million live in Russia. Around 26 million live in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), as well as in the Baltic States and the former Soviet Union. The approximate 7 million people remaining live in other countries, predominantly Germany, Israel, and the United States.
Russian is the official language of Russia and Belarus, as well as Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan, but Russian is heavily represented all over Europe.
Russian is a widespread language in the fields of science, technology, and art. Regardless of your field, we have the perfect translator in our network – someone for every subject area.
The history of the Russian language
The Russian language stems from the common Old East Slavic language, which was spoken by the Kievan Rus and its successors. The Ruthenian language arose in the Middle Ages and played a significant role in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In contrast to Ruthenian, however, Russian was largely influenced by the Church Slavic liturgical language.
In the 18th century, the Russian language underwent reform implemented by the writers Michail Lomonossow, Antioch Kantemir, and Wassil Trediakowski. After the fall of the Third Reich and the end of World War II, Russian came to be known as a new European language and experienced a boom in popularity. Russian was also frequently taught in schools as a second language.
