If you are reading this blog it is likely that you are interested in aviation and airlines and follow several other blogs about this topic too. This is why I thought it could be of interest to put together a short list of some of my favourite blogs covering the aviation industry in quite a large, yet unrreported (at least in the Anglo- blogosphere) part of the World: Russia.

Most of them are written in Russian, but the highly visual nature of Livejournal, Russia's favourite blogging platform, and the excellent pictures you can find on most of these blogs, makes them worth checking, even if you do not understand a single word. 

No need to say, Google Translate is getting better and better every day, so even this should not be an obstacle to enjoy some of these great blogs!  

You will see some of them are not exclusively about aviation, as the authors sometimes add other topics such as travel or personal posts, but all of them are full of amazing aviation and aircraft pictures from different parts of Russia and the former Soviet Union.

This is not an exhaustive list, as I keep discovering new great blogs all the time. If you know of other blogs of note that could be included in the next update of this list, please do not hesitate to drop me a line!

Here is my selection of Russian aviation blogs:
