Russian is the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia, the most widely spoken of the Slavic languages, and the largest native language in Europe.
Today, Russian is widely used outside Russia. Over a quarter of the world’s scientific literature is published in Russian. Russian is also a necessary accessory of world communications systems (broadcasts, air- and space communication, etc).
Because of the status of the Soviet Union as a superpower, Russian had great political importance in the 20th century and was widely taught in primary and higher education as a foreign language in many countries all over the world. Hence, the language is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

The Russian language is primarily spoken in Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, and, to a lesser extent, the other countries that were once constituent republics of the USSR.
