Michael Feinstein's newspaper, Russian Magazine, is celebrating its 20th anniversary. He was photographed in the offices of Russian Media in 2009

After publishing the first edition of Russian Magazine 20 years ago, Michael Feinstein celebrated with champagne gulped from a paper cup in his Cleveland apartment.

Sunday, he'll sip that champagne from a fluted glass at Restaurant Europa in Pepper Pike, wearing a tuxedo and surrounded by leaders of the Russian American community of Greater Cleveland.

Russian Magazine, Feinstein's bi-weekly newspaper, turns 20 next month at a birthday no one expected to see. It stands tall among the ethnic press of Northeast Ohio for its endurance and for its continuing impact.

In the digital age, the printed tabloid remains packed with ads and lively with stories about events in the local Russian community, reports from the old country, Russian movie gossip, and news of the latest Russian basketball phenomenon to join the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With a direct-mail circulation of 5,000, it's one of the most widely circulated ethnic newspaper's in Ohio.

"This was my dream when I moved to America, but I never imagined 20 years," Feinstein said Friday, as he made preparations for the gala celebration. "We have a very small market but it's our market. What surprises me is the young people. They read my newspaper, too. That's a big reward for me."

Written entirely in Cyrillic, with no English translations, the newspaper nevertheless appeals to the children of the immigrant parents it was designed for, Feinstein said. He credits the dynamic nature of Cleveland's Russian community, which numbers about 30,000 people and is still freshened by immigrants.

Feinstein knows their odyssey.

He arrived in 1993 with a master's degree in journalism and a resume that included serving as editor-in-chief of a major Russian newspaper. Feinstein, who is from Kursk, in the south of Russia, came with his wife and mother, both teachers, and his father, an engineer.

Like other Russian emigres, many of them Jews escaping persecution, they swallowed their pride to clean offices and deliver pizza while striving to get back to cherished careers.

Seeking to hearten and inform the community, Feinstein resolved to start a newspaper with the slimmest of resources. He recalls bartering with a computer business to put out the first edition, gaining a used computer in exchange for a free ad, and celebrating a $100 profit.

He watched the paper rise with the fortunes of its readers.

With his wife, Olga, Feinstein created Lyndhurst-based Russian Media, which at one point published the newspaper, ran a cable television show, produced Russian commercials and radio programs and published Russian business directories.

Today, Feinstein spends part of the year in Los Angeles, where he runs a film school and produces documentary films for Russian television. The Internet allows him to write and edit his newspaper from anywhere, he said, and he sees a bright future for Russian Magazine because of the advantages his readers glean from being conversant in two cultures.

Exhibit A, he said, is his 23-year-old daughter, Allie. She came with mom and dad at age 3 and grew up speaking both Russian and English. Today, she's a marketing executive for ABC Family, often representing her employer in Russian-speaking parts of the world.

"It's great to have two languages, to be multicultural," Feinstein said. "The newspaper helped people to do that."
