Today, nearly 11 thousand Syrian schoolchildren study the Russian language. Instructors for these students are trained in the Russian Language Department of Damascus University, where our compatriot Svetlana Rodygin teaches.

In an interview, she tells us how things have worked out for Russian women who have found themselves in Syria during these difficult wartimes.
The Confederations Cup has begun in Russia. The first game was played in a new stadium in Saint Petersburg. “Welcome to Russia”—with these words Russian President Vladimir Putin ended his speech at the opening ceremony.

From an early age the famous explorer Matvey Shparo has followed in the steps (or more accurately, the ski trails) of his legendary father Dmitry Shparo, whose records expanded the boundaries of human ability. Matvey has completed dozens of unique arctic expeditions on skis, made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, and earned national awards. In an interview with Russkiy Mir the explorer told us that the Arctic is for him a love and a challenge.

Countess Nadezhda Filaretovna von Meck was a famous nineteenth-century Russian patron of the arts.
