The site «Russians of Latvia» is dedicated to the history, culture and actual situation of the Russian national minority of Latvia. The site is a popular, encyclopaedic, constantly renewing network directory.  Our on-line reference book will be useful to trainee, students, researchers, as well as to general public reading in Russian, Latvian or English languages. 

The directory has multi-level construction which allows to select materials starting with the historical topic or category and then proceeding to the chronology of the events relating to the selected category.

The category of «Persons» includes biographies not only of the famous Latvian Russians but also people of other nationalities who worked in the field of Russian culture, thought and created in the Russian language.
