Facts about the Russian language
Where is Russian spoken?
Russian is the most widely-spoken native language in Europe. Around 160 million people speak Russian as their first language, and it’s spoken as a second language by almost as many.
Russian is the official language of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan, and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Russian is also spoken in the countries of the former Soviet Union (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Byelorussia, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine).
Borrowed vocabulary in modern Russian
Russian belongs to the family of Indo-European languages, and is one of three living members of the East Slavic languages – the others being Belarusian and Ukrainian.
Over a quarter of the world’s scientific literature is published in Russian. Modern Russian exhibits a large amount of borrowed international vocabulary for science, technology, and politics.
The Russian alphabet – Cyrillic script
Russian is written in the 33-letter Cyrillic alphabet, from left to right. Although inaccessible to readers who don’t know Cyrillic, it’s relatively simple for typesetting, website localisation, and software localisation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Russian and Belarusian the same language?
Russian and Belarusian are very closely related to each other, with around 86% of their vocabulary being identical. There are also several dialects that form transitions between the two languages.
In Belarus, both Russian and Belarusian are official languages. However, only around 23% of the population speaks Belarusian and estimates say only around 1 in 10 Belarusians uses the language in their daily lives.
Up until very recently, the use of Belarusian in Belarus was generally discouraged by the government. This may be showing signs of change though, with newfound official nods to promoting national cultural and historical values and the use of Belarusian in a presidential speech.
This could allow formerly relatively fringe intellectuals who continued to teach courses in the language to harness a growing popular interest in rallying around the Belarusian language as a marker of cultural identity.
What language is Russian most similar to?
Russian is part of the East Slavic branch of the Slavic subfamily of the Indo-European language family. The other two members of this branch are Ukrainian and Belarusian. These three languages share around 86% of the same words.
But Russian has a great deal in common with other Slavic languages too. Polish, Czech, Serbian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Bosnian, and Slovene all have high levels of similar vocabulary (many ranging upwards of 70%).
In general, if you speak Russian, you will find it easier to understand the written form of other Slavic languages as pronunciation can be very different indeed. It is also worth bearing in mind that there are many “false friends”, where words in two languages can look almost identical but mean very different things.
