Russian Language History
Russian is an East Slavic language and part of the branch Slavic branch of the Indo-European language family. Russia is native to Eastern Europe and widely spoken across the Caucasus, the Baltic states, and Central Asia.
The East Slavic languages had evolved by the eleventh century and by the thirteenth century, the different dialects had diverged into distinct languages including medieval Russian.
Until the seventeenth century Russian was influenced by Church Slavonic, a literary language, and the official language of Moscow. This was reformed in the eighteenth century and influences from Western European languages entered Standard Russian. The language then underwent a period of becoming standardised after. However, dialect differences continued across class and region, until the twentieth century when compulsory education became established, teaching a Standard form of Russian.
