News in Simple Russian. 5-12 January 2019

We have five pieces of news for you this time. The country is waking up from its New Year’s booze little by little, recovers its senses and plunges into its routine with its absurd and permanent Orwellian feeling.

Besides, we will take a small walk around the park in a small town just outside Moscow. The snow is squeaking, and the winter is just perfect!

The project is half-way between journalism and education: on the one hand, it is for those trying to brush up their skill of understanding the spoken language, on the other hand, it might be suitable as a source of news for those trying to catch up with what’s new in Russia in the original.
