This is one of the best courses which you can approach to understanding Russian economics, particularly its contemporary challenges and also a bridge to know the transition era!

Качественно изложены этапы становления экономики России. Хотелось больше получить адекватных литературных источников.

Dissatisfied for further reasons: the lecturer's proficiency in English in disappointing, not enough statistical evidence in lectures, the tests are not challenging enough and their quality is depressing (a lot of mistakes), quality of multimedia presentations (a lot of mistakes and omissions). The course is in need of a thorough rethinking, probably with a more fluent lecturer.

Nevertheless, thank you for raising many important issues.

Great content, great topic, but the English knowledge of the professor is very disturbing. With the same content, much shorter videos should have been created.

Overall excellent. One suggestion is to not assume learners outside of Russia know or can easily find what is thought "known or easily available". A link to the "state year books" would be helpful - not in all countries available even on line. Also terms specific to Russia would be helpful.

Still, excellant to be asked to think, to ponder, to ideate. WSell done.

This was a very interesting course and I learned a lot in it. I am interested in Russia and its transition and found this course answered many questions. It has given me a greater appreciation for the difficulties encountered by the State, the people and why Russia has not yet integrated into the outside world in a competitive way as I would have thought that it should have by now. The quizzes were all good and forced me to hone in on those things that were important in each module. Thank you.

Very well designed and interesting course. Professor Zuev presents facts and statistics without bias and encourages students to think for themselves. A great supplement for people interested in international relations and politics.
