Reverso http://www.reverso.net/ has both RU-EN and EN-RU dictionaries: http://dictionary.reverso.net/english-russian/. Can't vouch for their quality (I speak both languages and don't use this kind of dictionaries), but their DE-EN dictionary seems decent to me.

Reverso is good, agreed. The definitions often have sample sentences to show how a word is used, and there is a "Context" page (see the links at the top of the page) that also provides examples of usage (sometimes helpful, sometimes not).

I like this one: it is a hub that accesses various dictionaries: http://www.lexilogos.com/english/russian_dictionary.htm

Followed one of the links there, and one of the suggestions in the "related" section looks rather interesting: Russian Grammar in Literary Contexts

You can use Google Translate to translate Russian words to English (or vice versa). There are also many Russian dictionaries online.

Google translate isn't always reliable.

Google Translate is the best source I've found so far.

You can try this one too: www.lingvolive.com

My wife (Russian native speaker) uses Lingvo as a day-to-day tool.

It was my first digital dictionary. Yandex used to have a dictionary too which seemed to be based on Lingvo (I can be wrong, but it looked a LOT like it). They have decided to replace it with "translation". So be it, but I can use Google instead. None of them is as good as a dictionary anyway.

Certainly possible. When my wife learned to love Lingvo, her only internet connection was $6/minute for a 9k6 sat phone connection.

In my opinion, the best online dictionary I've found is at: http://http://www.dict.cc/

It also gives some pointers on the context of each possible word. Some common idioms can also be translated.

I use this one: https://translate.yandex.ru/ It's better to use it as a dictionary (enter a single word and find all possible meanings), not as a translater (enter the whole sentence and get... something hardly-understandable for natives ))) )

What I've been looking for for a while is a simple text-only word-list. It is routine in my life to be several hundred miles from a mobile phone connection, with WiFi atrocious or worse (only cabled connection, and that through an extremely locked-down network - getting permission to use a new site takes weeks to months). So a very basic word list is up to my level of needs. Finding such though - harder than it seems. (Incidentally : works laptops locked down Win7 - nothing new permitted ; my machine is Linux. So suggestions of programmes are unlikely to be helpful.)
