Russian is an Important Language

A breathtaking history, a very rich culture, and an influential role in world geopolitics: these are all general qualities we could attribute to Russia.

The Russian language counts more than 280 million speakers, making it the 7th most spoken language on the planet, just ahead of French. In fact, 146.5 million people speak Russian as their mother tongue, and about just as many – 135 million – speak it as a second language.

Russian-speaking people are mainly found in Russia, but also in the former Soviet Socialist Republics which, for more than 70 years, had Russia imposed on them by successive Soviet leaders: Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Mongolia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, to the former Yugoslavia and the former GDR (East Germany), where Russian was taught in schools before the breakdown of the Soviet republic in 1991.

In fact, many European countries still use the Cyrillic alphabet for their national language, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Serbia, in Bulgaria, in Belarus, in Ukraine, and in the Baltic States.

In these countries, Russian and the Cyrillic alphabet is still important because of political forces of the 20th century. Moreover, Russian is still a lingua franca in the Caucasus and Asia Minor.

Russian comes from the Slavic languages and is one of the official languages of the UN. The Cyrillic alphabet is also the third official alphabet of the European Union after Latin and Greek since the accession of Bulgaria on 1 January 2007.

In any case, speaking Russian can be a considerable asset!
