WHAT IS RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based Web-content syndication format used to deliver constantly updated headline feeds to readers. Our RSS feeds deliver headlines, descriptions, and links back to today's stories on RusUSA.com. It's an easy way for you to be alerted when content that interests you appears online. We currently use RSS 2.0.
