Russian language : vocabulary, alphabet, dictionary, courses and languages spoken by the Russians
Russian is one of five official langues of the UN. It belongs to the group of Indo-European languages, and is therefore related to Greek and Latin. Russian is written in a non-Latin script - the Cyrillic alphabet. There are also a lot of minority languages in Russia, some of them are officially recognised.
The Cyrillic Alphabet was named for St. Cyril, a Greek monk who, with Methodius, brought written language to Christian converts in the mid-9th century. The Cyrillic alphabet is closely based on the Greek alphabet, with some additional letters invented to represent Slavic specific sounds.
