In my oppinion, the translation wasn't perfect, and not as good as it could have been. Nothing much was changed, but I found a strange loss of humor. I was more than surprised to find that my friends were also reading these books in Russia, and I'm happy with the translation since it's better than nothing. I suggest if you know or are learning Russian, and have read Harry Potter in another language, that you definately buy this book to compare. It's the first book in the series.
And a couple of years ago another publisher (Machaon) purchased the rights to the Harry Potter series and for some reason decided to use the amateur translation that circulated on the Internet. And while this translation is true to the source it's written in really poor Russian and I don't recommend it (or any other book of the series published by Machaon) to anyone due to this reason (especially to those who learn Russian).
So, if you want to buy the Russian translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the best option is probably a newer edition (2007-2013) by Rosman (Росмэн). There are still plenty of them on Amazon - new and used. Or you may skip the first book entirely and go straight to the Chamber of Secrets (again, better find the Rosman edition).

Love it. I plan to get all of them in Russian. I like to read in Russian as you get better the more you read. Not enough funds yet so I just keep reading this one!Published on September 16, 2013 by Andrea Dejarnett
The book arrived quickly and in good shape. A review on Amazon found the translation to be poor, so I am looking fofward to reading it to see where the translator fell down.Published on January 18, 2013 by Patrick Barrett
