Re: genealogy forums in russian to overcome brick wall in research? #ukraine #russia

The two main Russian-speaking forums that I use are Jewish roots https://forum.j-roots.info/ and Genealogy Forum VGD https://forum.vgd.ru/.
Both are fully accessed from all over the world, including Ukraine.
As for the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, there are blocking measures from both sides. Russians block Ukrainians from accessing Russian sites, while Ukrainians block themselves from accessing Russian sites. Genealogy wise, the majority of forums are in Russia for various reasons. And of course, there are many Facebook groups which serve as a sort of genealogy forums.
