If you take a look to the right, in the masthead of the magazine, you will notice that this issue of Russian Life is number 600. Published since October 1956, Russian Life turns 65 this fall, and we have been at the helm for nearly a third of its issues: this is our 170th. Whew.

Given this milestone, I would like to give a shout out to some of our unsung heroes. They rarely appear on the Contributors page, yet their contributions are crucial to this publication’s life and fate.

First, there is our managing editor, Maria Antonova, who has been with us for 14 years – nearly half our tenure. Her job is to find ideas and writers, to vet the work we publish, and to keep us tuned into the pulse of what is going on in Russia. She does an amazing job.
