“I have had a subscription to Russian Life for at least three years. I think that it is the best publication about a foreign culture to be found anywhere. Its content is a combination of National Geographic, People, Time and Fortune. The quality of writing is excellent... the physical production, color, photos, and layout is as professional as any magazine. I recommend it to any individual or organization with any level of interest in Russia and Russian culture.”
“Russian Life is the greatest! More than any other publication I receive, I look forward to its articles, its great photographs and art work, its balanced perspective! I also enjoy reading about the parts of Russia that I know (the cities) AND the hidden, yet equally fascinating, parts which I have not had an opportunity to visit. Keep up the good work and THANK YOU for a most wonderful publication!!!”
“I debated for two years whether or not to order Russian Life magazine. I just received my first issue and all I can say is that I wasted two years of what I bet was wonderful writing. What a beautiful, insightful, well written piece of literature! We adopted our precious daughter from Russia two years ago and my great grandparents hail from Russia. We want to learn more about this diverse and culturally rich country, not only for the benefit of our daughter, but also for the rest of our family. Thank you for your talent and efforts.”
“Russian Life Magazine happens to be the premier glossy type magazine available! This publication is by far, one of, if not, the best periodicals available on the market today. I do not, nor ever have had, a magazine subscription that equals the caliber of this one. It is not only read in my household, but is also passed on to those in Magadan, Novosibirsk & Moscow with equal enthusiasm! As for a wide span of information about Russia and its people, this magazine is on the cutting edge of creating curiosity!”
“This was a Christmas gift for my daughter, who has a degree in Russian Area Studies. She just received her card and first magazine today. she was THRILLED!!!”
“Only wanted to say thank you. Received my first copy of Russian Life today. Wish I had subscribed sooner. The magazine was more and better than I expected. Thank you again.”
“I think the magazine is just great! I actually wait for it and read each issue word for word at least twice. It struck me as very strange that many of my friends from Russia have never heard of the magazine. When I gave them a few issues they were so delighted! They just couldn't understand how they didn't know about it. Please keep up the great work.”
“I recently subscribed to the Russian Life magazine and I am very pleased. The articles are very interesting and educational along with some fabulous photos. I also received 301 Things About Russia. I am in the process of learning! Thank you very much.”
“Russian Life both entertains and informs me. Its broad range of high quality, well illustrated articles makes it fascinating and has me reading every issue from cover to cover.”

Peace! Land! Bread! This was the battle cry of the 1917 October Revolution (old calendar) that changed the history of Russia and indeed the entire world. Since the time of Ivan the Terrible, the tsars concentrated on centralization of their power and control. The most common way of doing this was to take power away from the nobility, appeasing them by giving them dominion over their land and workers. This soon developed into the oppressive, slave-style condition known as serfdom.
