Update: News and Articles

The month of August has been absolutely wonderful here in Moscow, especially since half of our team has been on a holiday or on research trips, and now another half is about to go away, to savour the last warm days. By way of updating you on our recent materials, here are the links to some of our most-read pieces from last month.
      

People
      

We've acquired the biographies of the Russian painters Victor Borisov-Musatov, Konstantin Korovin, Simon Ushakov, the author Maxim Gorky, and film directors Nikita Mikhalkov and Vladimir Menshov (both - Oscar laureates, no less). We've also had three great articles, one is a list of all Russian Nobel Prize Laureates, another is about the Russian "Forever27" club. Yes, Russia has got its very own Van Morrison and Janis Joplin. Who they were? Read the article.
      

Science
      

August has been shallow on Science news, as our editor went to the Kuril Islands on a research trip. A successful biologist, Anna Kizilova is a great asset to our team. Still, she's written several features in August, among them: a digest of a research into reasons for migration of young Russians; the ground-breaking research into dieting; and a report on the radiation spread into Russia following the radioactive leak during the Fukushima disaster.
      

Culture
      

Here, as always, we have had a great number of interesting news, and as for articles, there were a wonderful piece on Birds of Paradise, a unique character in Russian folklore, and Moscow Centres for Modern Art.
      

Russia International
      

In August you had the chance to learn about the Russian Muslim traditional celebrations on Ramadan.
      

Travel
      

Our new Travel editor has written a superb series of articles on Russian sacred places. Although a small selection, each article details the history and landmarks of Russian monasteries that today attract many pilgrims from all corners of the Earth. And if you prefer something more urban, yet green and solitary, check out these guides to "green zones" in Moscow and in St. Petersburg.
      

What to expect in September
      

In September we have decided to bring you a bit of the Urals. Prepare to read more about adventure tourism opportunities in the region, its culture, literature, music, and people.

Have a great September and Indian Summer!
