The Russian-speaking diaspora in Germany is represented by many different organizations involved in the preservation and development of the culture of their homeland and the Russian language in Germany. Such organizations include community members, cultural educational centers, kindergartens, Russian schools and weekend schools, offering children, youth and adults various courses a la russe. In addition, there are theaters, bands, libraries of the Russian diaspora in Germany offering performances in Russian or in the style of their home country.

Some cities in Germany regularly offer Russian-language film screenings.
