What’s up ZIMA Magazine?
It is a major Russian-language media project based in London, comprising the website zimamagazine.com, the print magazine ZIMA and the offline community ZIMA CLUB. We unite Russian-speaking people who live, work or study in the UK, as well as those who are thinking about the possibility of moving to this country or just frequently visit it. We keep them up to date with important events in the country, inspire and advise them, introduce them to interesting people and tell them how things really work here. The editor-in-chief of the ZIMA project is Alexey Zimin.
Because where we live and work now, there is everything but the winter we are used to. There are a lot of sentimental notes in this word, but when choosing a name for our project, we were simply looking for a short “cultural code” – a word that is understandable to anyone who was born and raised in a country where Russian is spoken, that unites us all wherever we are, and that simply evokes emotions. ZIMA Calls.
What’s the site about?
Zimamagazine.com is the gateway to life in the UK’s Russian-speaking community. We tell who these people are, what they do, what they are interested in, help with advice and answer their questions. We write about community life, startups, business, education, culture and the arts, deal with changes in the law, and share life-enhancing life hacks. We are very quick to respond to English news and are often the first to explain how it can affect the lives of our readers.
