The Russian language – characteristics and spread

Russian is the most widely spoken Slavic language and forms the East Slavic subgroup together with Ukrainian, Belarusian and Ruthenian. Standard Russian is based on Central Russian dialects originating from around Moscow.

Russian has about 145 million native speakers, 118 million of whom live in Russia. Russian is the official language of Russia, and an official language in Belarus (together with Belarusian) and Kazakhstan (together with Kazakh as the main official language), Kyrgyzstan (together with Kyrgyz as the main official language) and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, which was part of Ukraine up to the beginning of 2014 (together with Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar). Some south-eastern Ukrainian oblasts have Russian as their official language, a status that is politically controversial. Russian is also one of the official languages in Transnistria (together with Ukrainian and Moldavian), South Ossetia (together with Ossetic) and Abkhazia (along with Abkhazian), states that are not recognised by international law. Russian is both the native language of part of the population and the language of a major part of public life in these states and regions. There are also Russian-speaking minorities in all of the CIS countries and the Baltic States.
