For 23 years, we have been publishing Russian Life, the only truly independent, English language magazine on the world’s largest country. It is time to make a quantum leap forward and make Russian Life a serious online publication as well. Our goal is nothing less than to make Russian Life the most interesting, authoritative online outlet on all things Russian.

Shed a tear for our last World Cup TWERF, in which we finally learn about the Romanovs and feel the wrath of nature.
The 22 heroes in this volume were all born in 1917 – Russia’s year of revolution. They lived through Civil War, Collectivization, World War II, the Cold War, and the collapse of the USSR. Indeed, their lives are a living reflection of the past Russian century, and their stories show us a side of history not available in any other resource.
