The Grand Lodge of Russia (GLoR) (Russian: Великая ложа России) is the Regular Masonic jurisdiction for Russia. The Grand Lodge was established on 24 June 1995. It was the first national grand lodge to be created in the country since the closure of the original Russian grand lodges in 1822, when Freemasonry was banned.
The Grand Lodge of Russia has jurisdiction across the entire nation, and enjoys mutual recognition with most of the regular Grand Lodges worldwide, including the three senior or “home” Grand Lodges, namely the United Grand Lodge of England (recognition in 1996), the Grand Lodge of Ireland, and the Grand Lodge of Scotland; more than 100 other Grand Lodges in the world also exchange recognition.
In July 2016 the GLoR reported over 700 members, in more than 35 Lodges nationwide. The current Grand Master of the GLoR is Andrei Vladimirovich Bogdanov.
