Many of us who are professionally engaged in the world of the Internet seek ways to stay abreast of the latest developments and hot topics in this fast-moving environment.

For nearly ten years now, the IETF Journal has been providing highlights of the ongoing discussions and debates related to Internet standards and to the work of the IETF. The IETF Journal aims to keep its content easily understandable, so as to share its often complex technical news with a wider audience and to facilitate the participation of newcomers to join IETF activities.

With the global nature of the Internet, the IETF strives to attract a balanced number of contributors and participants from across the world. Historically, contributions from the Russian technical community to the IETF work have been relatively low, which is surprising given the traditionally high levels of technical competence in the country.

With a view to raising awareness and increasing contributions from Russia to the IETF’s work on the development of new Internet standard specifications, the European Regional Bureau of the Internet Society together with the Russian ISOC Chapter and the Foundation for Support of Internet Development joined forces to translate the IETF Journal into Russian. The translated Journal will be distributed amongst the Russian technical community and a number of profile-raising activities are planned in Russia for 2015.

The Russian translation of the latest IETF Journal is available from the main IETF Journal page, or directly at http://isocru.org/files/journal/journal_10_14.pdf.

To learn more about ISOC’s activities in Russia, please contact Maarit Palovirta, Manager of European Regional Affairs ([email protected]), or Fedor Smirnov, Secretary of the Russian ISOC Chapter Board ([email protected]).
