Since the first revelation of the Holy Quran until today it has retained its value, which it belongs in the eyes of the interlocutors. Since that day have been invested great effort in order to better understand the Quran. Those who received the first revelation (believers/unbelievers) had no such difficulties in understanding it. Because the Quran was in their mother language, it was revealed in Arabic language. Doubtless, the Quran’s Arabic language is Arabic language which speaked in the period of the revelation. A major factor in understanding the Quran is, to be a direct object of the revolution. But, non-native speakers of Arabic language and some indirect interlocutors who were interested in Islam had many problems in understanding the contextual reasons of the Quran. In order to overcome these barriers nowadays carried out a various scientific activities. In order to achieve to the Arabic language in the period of the revelation of the Quran has done various semantic studies; for those who don't know Arabic language, the Quran is translated into different languages. One of these languages is Russian language. As it known, the first Russian translation of Holy Quran was in XVII. century. Potr Posnikov who was first translated the Quran into Russian language. This work was translated from Andre Du Ryer’s work which was writing in French, and published in 1716. The translation of Quran from European languages into Russian was continued until 1871. In this process, As far as we know, of this period there four books which were translated from European languages to Russian, and actually known that any translation was made from Arabic. After 1871, the situation has changed, according to our findings between 1871-1987 years there three Quran which were translated into Russian language from its origin Arabic language. But after 1987, translations from Arabic language to Russian language continued, although translations from different languages has intensified. The important reasons of concentration on the translations from different languages are some sect and intellectual propagandas. In this study, we will research several Russian translated Qurans from other languages and of course interpreters who brought life to them.
