Where is Russian spoken?
Russia, even after the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, is still the largest country in the world. The vast expanses of Russia cover eleven separate time zones on two continents - Europe and Asia.
The Russian language was a mandatory subject in Soviet schools and almost all of the 280 million people inhabiting the former republics know and speak Russian, either as their native language or second language. Russia is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, and is spoken in at least 30 countries by 145 million in total, including those in Russia. Anyone with a good knowledge of both Russian and English can communicate with educated people in most parts of the world.
