Bible in Russia
860 AD - Cyril and Methodius create the Russian written language for writing the Gospel and some books of the Bible.
1581 AD - Ostroh Bible. In different churches and monasteries of Rus there were separate books of the Bible, for the first time they were collected together. The language was obsolete by that time, but given how hard it was, it was easier to learn the oldest language than to rewrite it.
1876 g. - comes out (after many ordeals) 1st Russian Bible, Bible in an understandable modern language. This translation is basic today. What is important is that the evangelical movement in Russia has now become possible.
1917 AD - Communists come to power forbidding the Bible, but eliminating illiteracy.
1987 AD - Communism has fallen. For the first time in history, Russia has the Bible in its modern native language, is able to read it and there are no prohibitions to it.
