English Russia has started as a personal blog of Igor S, young Russian gentleman who was not satisfied with the situation, when the lots of things happening in Russia have not been covered by the larger mass media. So he started blogging about things that were often outlooked by the media giants and pretty fast this proved to be interesting and exciting – both for him and for his numerous readers that started to like the blog. In a matter of just one year it was cited as a one of the most popular blogs in the world. The founder himself preferred to use the pen name of Tim (standing for the “TEAM” – English Russia team which consisted at the time of just one person).
Now it is a popular daily entertaiment but still personal blog devoted to the events happening in Russian speaking countries, such as Russia (Russian Federation), Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Kazakhstan, etc. Everyday something interesting happens in the countries occupying 1/6 of the populated world. Igor with couple of his assistants are here to inform you about those events, often overlooked by others.
