With approximately 170 million native speakers in 2015, Russian is the eighth most spoken language in the world.
Interesting fact: There are only about 200,000 words in the Russian language. This number has doubled since the 19th century, when only 50,000 – 100,000 words were recorded in dictionaries. This number is still low compared to the English language, which is comprised of over 1,000,000 words. The result is that many Russian words have more than one meaning.
