There are more than 150 Russian native speakers, and Russian is one of the six languages used by the UN. The role of Russian as a vehicular language across the former Soviet Union states is still prevalent, and having Russian language skills is highly recommended to do business in Russia and its neighbours. The relationship between Russia and the UK dates back to the 16th century when the Muscovy Company was established to control and develop trade between the two countries. Nowadays, the economic ties between UK and Russian companies are still important despite the mutual sanctions imposed by the EU and the Russian government. Business and professional motivations to learn Russian aside, studying Russian is an excellent way to discover one the richest and finest cultures in the world. Besides, acquiring Russian language skills will make it easier to study other Slavic languages, including Polish, Czech and Serbo-Croatian.
