This paper presents the Universal Dependencies tagset (UD v1) as a new annotation scheme for Russian treebanks. The universal list of dependency relations was adopted and extended to comply with certain language-specific syntactic constructions. The tagset was validated, converting two Russian treebanks into the UD format, UD-Russian-SynTagRus and UD-Russian-Google.
