Russian, or ру́сский язы́к, is the most widely spoken Slavic language. It is also the most geographically widespread language in Eurasia.
What sets Russian apart is its use of “soft” and “hard” sounds for consonants, and stress to differentiate between words.
Additionally, Russian has the most native speakers of any language in Europe. The 144 million people using Russian as their first language, live mostly in Russia, Ukraine, or Belarus.
The 18th and 19th centuries are known as the “Golden Age” for Russian – during this period, the language was stabilised and standardised, and many of what are know considered world-class literary pieces were written.
