Things you need to know about the Russian language
What is the main Russian language?
The main language spoken in Russia is Russian. Russian is spoken by around 258 million people around the world and 142 million people in Russia. 97% of Russian schoolchildren receive their education in it and roughly 80% of Russians speak it as their first and only language.
Russian is the most spoken native language in Europe and the most geographically widespread language in all of Eurasia. In addition, it’s the most widely spoken Slavic language.
In Russia, Russian is the only official language at the national level.
What are the top 3 languages spoken in Russia?
Russian is the only national language of Russia. But there are 35 other languages that are accounted official languages in the different constituencies and republics of Russia (one of the country’s types of administrative divisions).
After Russian, the two most spoken languages in Russia are Tatar (with 5.3 million speakers) and Ukrainian (with 1.8 million speakers). There are also 100 minority languages spoken in different parts of the country.
Is the Cyrillic alphabet Russian?
Yes, Russian is written using an alphabet derived from the Cyrillic script.
But Russian is far from the only language to use an alphabet that comes from this source. In fact, Cyrillic is the national script in many countries in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, North, Central, and East Asia, and the Caucasus.
When Bulgaria joined the European Union in 2007, the Cyrillic script became the EU’s third official script after the Latin and Greek alphabets.
Where is Russian spoken?
Russian is an official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.
As Russian was essentially the language of the Soviet Union until it was dissolved in 1991, it remains a lingua franca across all of the post-Soviet states, used in public life and often in official capacities. This means that you will find Russian spoken in the Ukraine, Central Asia, the Caucasus, and even in the Baltic states.
Russian is the second-most used language on the Internet, behind only English. It is also one of the six official languages of the United Nations (along with Chinese, Spanish, French, Arabic, and English) and one of the two official languages aboard the International Space Station.
