russiaSLAM is chinaSMACK’s loud and boisterous younger sister.
It’s our belief that Russian people and foreigners are not so different after all, but at the moment, the Russian-speaking internet is quite daunting for English speakers, and inaccessible to the non-Russian speaker.
Therefore, russiaSLAM aims to bring what’s culturally and topically relevant in Russia to the English-speaking reader, giving context to news stories through accurate translations of both the content and the commentary.
This could be stories, pictures, videos – anything trending on the Runet, along with carefully selected comments and reactions from Russian-speaking netizens translated into English to widen its availability. Coverage of Russia in Western media – and indeed sometimes in Russian media itself is often very biased. That’s where russiaSLAM comes in. We aim to present what Russian netizens themselves are discussing, and what is trending on the Russian-speaking internet.
