Collection: Russian

Russian is the most widely spoken Slavic language. Its roots trace back to ancient Slavic people living in Eastern Europe. Today, it's the official language of Russia and is also spoken in many neighboring countries. Over 250 million people speak Russian. This language uses the Cyrillic alphabet, which is different from the Latin one used in English. Among other Slavic languages, Ukrainian and Belarusian are closest to Russian. All three share vocabulary and grammar, making them somewhat mutually intelligible.
