http://sss.vn.ua is a Russian site that presents many religious topics. Dattatreya page http://dattatreya.ru/ developed by Vasyl Vernyhora with many of his own translations of major texts has many audio stotras. There are Datta puja and Shri Vidya puja in audio format. Also, on a subpage of the main site, there are quite a few audio clips of Gayatri mantras available at http://sss.vn.ua/audio/gayatris/. In addition, "Maps Of India" and "Photo-galleries Of India" are useful features.

To read the Russian contents in different languages, use

पांच संस्कृत मनीषियों को भवभूति, भर्तृहरि और पतंजलि पुरस्कार |
On 16th April, in Bharat Bhavan, Bhopal, Madhyapradesh, five Sanskrit scholars were honoured with Bhavabhuti, Bhartrihari, and Patanjali awards.
Bhavabhuti: Shriramachandra (Karnatak) for his lifelong service for Sanskrit
Bhartrihari (2005-2006): Pt. Jagadish Prasad Tripathi (kaTanii)
Bhartrihari (2006-2007): Shri Ranganathacharya (Ujjain)
Patanjali (2005-2006): Shri Somanath Nene

In his speech, the chief guest Shri Ishvardas Rohani said that "to discover the knowledge contained in the Vedic/ancient literature, knowing Sanskrit is the only means. The spiritual knowledge was discovered, retained, and presented by the sages after thousands of years of research and tradition. To have this tradition maintained, the government should make efforts to teach Sanskrit to children from the first grade."
