    You can use Russian in any country of the former Soviet Union. Even in countries like Georgia, that was in an armed conflict with Russia not long ago, people are willing to speak Russian with turists.
    Besides these, to my knowledge, Russian is commonly spoken or at least understood also in Bulgaria. almost 5 years ago

    Russian language is surprisingly international, given both the historical tie to the Soviet Union as well as the Russian diaspora. Other than most former Soviet republics, places like Mongolia, Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Israel has large number of Russian speakers. almost 5 years ago
