Russian is spoken by over 150 million people, and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. The opening of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union since the Cold War has seen growth opportunities in independent trade, the entertainment industry, and international business.

For the first time, direct business contacts have become possible between Aotearoa and Russia, opening many career possibilities for experts and speakers of Russian.
