    Is there a Russian equivalent for expression "Russian-speaking"? As in "What's going on in the Russian-speaking world?"

    Do I resort to something like this:

    Что происходит в мире русского языка?

    As use to be in such long words there are two stresses - the first is weaker, the second is stronger: ру́сскоговоря́щий, ру́сскоязы́чный.
