There’s a famous Russian saying: “Без труда́ не вы́тащишь и ры́бку из пруда́.”

You know what I’m talking about, right? It means, “You can’t pull a fish from a pond without effort.” In other words, nothing worth doing is easy. Truer words, and all that.

Except…

Well, there’s one thing you can do that’s worth doing and is strangely simple. And that’s creating a local presence in Russia with our awesome local landline and mobile numbers.

Yes, you read that right. We’ve added Russian mobile numbers to the mix!

These mobile numbers carry the country code +7 – so that’s 007 to dial Russia from abroad. Does anyone else think whoever was responsible for choosing national dialing codes was a James Bond fan?  The prefix is 958, which doesn’t have a cultural reference but is good to know. 

Oh, and they’re capable of carrying two-way SMS and voice traffic on the same line. Kind of like a double-agent of effective business communications.

All told, we now offer the following Russian coverage options:

  • Local numbers in 80 of the country’s largest cities
  • Mobile numbers with SMS and voice
  • Toll-free numbers are on the way very soon!

There’s never been a better time to create a quick, hassle-free and cost-effective local presence in Russia. So, what are you waiting for? Get started on connecting your internal teams with one another, offer local customer service, or help your sales team make a splash. 

It’s time to reel in the line!
