SRAS PROJECTS  / ARTICLES AND INFORMATION

Welcome to SRAS article archives. 

These articles have been formerly featured in the SRAS Newsletter - a free monthly publication. The articles and newsletter are designed to give information on a wide range of subjects related to Russia and former Soviet Union: the languages, histories, cultures, and politics that can be found there. Most are designed to be concise overviews of their subject, giving much information in a short space so as to be informative and good material for beginning research for larger papers and studies. 

These articles may be reproduced for educational purposes, but www.SRAS.org must be cited as the source. Those interested in commercial publication of these articles, interested in contributing to this section of our site, or interested in subscribing to our monthly newsletter should contact Josh Wilson, Asst. Director and General Editor, at jwilson@sras.org

You may also be interested in our many other resources for studying Russia and the FSU.
