There's A Magazine For Everything

Dalnoboy America, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, produces this magazine - the only magazine in the USA for Eastern-European truck drivers, currently distributed in 29 states.  I picked it up at the Freightliner in Portland while waiting for our truck to be worked on.  It appears to be written almost entirely in Russian, although there are a few ads in English.

If you've been trucking for any amount of time, you've likely run into an Eastern European or Russian truck driver.  Oddly, one of the first things that give them away is that they're usually wearing a tracksuit.

As you can see by the "Roadcheck 2018" in the bottom right-hand corner of the cover, it's a current issue.  I found information for a past event called DalnoFest, a festival for the Slavic truck-driving community.
