The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
Svetlana Solodovnik is a graduate of the Moscow State University Journalism Department and has worked for a magazine of foreign literature, overseeing the sections on Hungarian literature and religion. She has also translated fiction from Hungarian and English into Russian. In 1996, she joined the liberal magazine Itogi, covering religious issues. Svetlana now works at Yezhenedelny Zhurnal, a magazine founded by the staff of the original Itogi, after they had to leave when the magazine changed owners. Svetlana enjoys good company, having guests over and feeding them a good dinner; perhaps for this reason, in her student days she had the nickname "pancake."
