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!

Thought-provoking and well built-up course. The way Professor Zuev speaks is clear, understandable and very enjoyable. Definitely 5/5!

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.

This course has some really great content, and I learned a lot about the transition from communism in Russia. Unfortunately, the professor repeats himself ad nauseam and is often quite tangential, and I found the need to speed up the video speed by quite a bit.

It is too simplified to get a real view of the 90's economic situation , especially the 91-93 years.
To talk about transition between A and C , better to talk about A and not only about B and C.
It is an useful course for general knowledge of Russia , it as a start , for more accurate analyses I could advise this ( in russian) :

Poor delivery, very hard to listen. Lector uses too many buzz words like "em", "am". This is not a live lecture so it could be worth practicing and recording a clean quality speech. For example, lectures from the week 2 are unbearable to listen.

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.

Good info, week 4 has a mistake in the quiz that makes it unpassable.
