Evgueny, one of my Russian tutors at LingQ, and I, have started a series of discussions on Russia, in Russian. This material is for our Library at LingQ, and so I try to keep my comments (full of errors) to a minimum, mostly a few questions here and there. Evgueny is knowledgeable and most interesting to listen to. The audio and text of this series are available in our Library, of course. Here is the most recent episode where we talk of Russia today and yesterday.
The name of the Collection in the Lingq Library is:
НОВЫЙ РУССКИЙ ПОДКАСТ
