Russia religion news is a long-established, searchable online archive of selected, translated articles from the Russian media on religion in the former Soviet Union from 1996 to date. Articles are taken mostly from the mainstream media, including Interfax and Russian monitors of religious news such as portal-credo.ru. Links to the original Russian text are provided for most recent items. The compiler and translator, US academic Professor Paul D. Steeves, will provide copies of those originals unavailable online on request, where possible. The site may be searched by any word or phrase, with a refine option to narrow results if need be, or browsed by year. Articles selected are weighted towards: major news stories related to religion; religious minorities; persecution of and discrimination against believers, including antisemitism; national and religious identity; religious conflict; interfaith relations; legislation. A brief links page provides access to: the 1997 Russian law 'On freedom of conscience and religious associations' in Russian and in English translation; US Department of State reports on religious freedom; statistics and surveys on religious associations and affiliation up to 2004; and other organisations monitoring religion in the former Soviet Union. A useful guide to abbreviations shows the full Russian and English names for all acronyms used. An option to be notified by email when the site is updated is available from the recent news page. This resource will be of most use to researchers and teachers of post-Soviet religion and Russian media, and of contemporary religious affairs.
