The Russian Booker Prize was modelled after the Man Booker Prize and inaugurated in 1992.
The Prize had various sponsors over the years. Since 2018 the Prize has stopped its activities as no new sponsor was found within Russia. The organizers refused to look for a sponsor abroad because this immediately would have forced the Russian prize to declare itself beging a „foreign agent“ according to a new Russian law.
Each year, a new independent jury of writers and critics chose a winner out of a short list of six best novels.
