For two days now I've tried to use the bilingual dictionary look-up at Academic.ru for both Ru-En and Bu-En and got this error message every time: This site can't be reached. The site is still working for monolingual look-ups.

Does anyone know what's going on?

OK Jan 9

James, I checked it two days ago and just now--everything is fine both from gray/white Ukrainian ip and via a vpn.

Same result Jan 9

Thanks for checking. I just tried it again and got the same error message. I also tried bilingual look-up using my iPhone and got a Safari error message saying it couldn't contact the server.

Maybe it's a US-only problem. Or maybe the site just doesn't like me.

It's not working for me either (in the UK).

Tried https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ Jan 13

Still having a problem… It's a shame, too, because this is one of my favorite dictionaries.

When I ran the URL for the site’s home page on downforeveryoneorjustme.com and got a response that said the website is up. I then tried running it with a URL for a Russian word (https//dic.academic.ru/другой/ru/xx/) and downforeveryoneorjustme.com responded that I had entered an invalid domain name.
