The hidden strength of Russia’s anti-war movement
Russia’s anti-war movement is often written off as impotent, cowardly and toothless. Nothing could be further from the truth. Western discourse largely doesn’t understand it.

From Our Students

Being a member of the Russian Club at UMass Amherst was finding a home away from home. I was thrilled to find a welcoming and supportive community where I could make friends and learn more about the cultural traditions I grew up with in my family. It was wonderful to be able to enjoy events through the semester. The field trips we took were simultaneously educational and fun! If you're looking for a great way to learn more about Russian and Eastern European culture, language, and traditions Russian club is definitely the way to go.
