How Much Politics



In a world increasingly defined by partisanship, warring camps, and ideological foes, there is comfort in finding oases where politics is not a welcome guest.

Russian Life has never sought to be such an oasis, but we have always sought to keep politics from being a major focus of the magazine. We rarely write features on politics per se, and we keep the political news to a minimum in our Notebook section.

There are two simple reasons for this. First, Russian politics is covered well by many other sources, both in English and in Russian. Second, most political issues are time sensitive, and there are about three weeks between when we put an issue to press and when it arrives in your mailbox. So we could never provide political news in a timely manner.
