For the first time in Russian historiography, there is a review of literature in Korean, published in the Soviet Far East. A diverse and wide range of books has a scientific analysis as historical sources on the development of the Korean language, culture and education of Korean migrants in the territory of the USSR during the formation of the Soviet government and the Korean community (Soviet Koreans). The Russian State Library in the Eastern Department stores more than 550 volumes published in Korean in the USSR. These are books written for children, Korean textbooks for primary and secondary classes, textbooks translated from Russian into general disciplines such as algebra, geometry, physics, chemistry, literature, geography, translations of classics of Russian literature, as well as political education books. . Contrary to the claims of many foreign researchers who questioned the development of the Korean language in the USSR (1920–1937) during the period of Japan’s colonial domination on the Korean Peninsula, these sources prove that the native language level of migrants was at a high enough level and had the potential for further development. There could be no similar textbooks and books in Korean on the Korean Peninsula, as well as in any other country of the world where Koreans lived compactly. The analysis of this literature is relevant not only for historians, but also philologists and linguists of the Korean language.

Students' internet usage attracts the attention of many researchers in different countries. Differences in internet penetration in diverse countries lead us to ask about the interaction of medium and culture in this process. In this paper we present an analysis based on a sample of 825 students from 18 Russian universities and discuss findings on particularities of students' ICT usage. On the background of the findings of the study, based on data collected in 2008-2009 year during a project "A сross-cultural study of the new learning culture formation in Germany and Russia", we discuss the problem of plagiarism in Russia, the availability of ICT features in Russian universities and an evaluation of the attractiveness of different categories of ICT usage and gender specifics in the use of ICT.
The results of cross-cultural research of implicit theories of innovativeness among students and teachers, representatives of three ethnocultural groups: Russians, the people of the North Caucasus (Chechens and Ingushs) and Tuvinians (N=804) are presented. Intergroup differences in implicit theories of innovativeness are revealed: the ‘individual’ theories of innovativeness prevail among Russians and among the students, the ‘social’ theories of innovativeness are more expressed among respondents from the North Caucasus, Tuva and among the teachers. Using the structural equations modeling the universal model of values impact on implicit theories of innovativeness and attitudes towards innovations is constructed. Values of the Openness to changes and individual theories of innovativeness promote the positive relation to innovations. Results of research have shown that implicit theories of innovativeness differ in different cultures, and values make different impact on the attitudes towards innovations and innovative experience in different cultures.
