WikiZnanie (Template:Lang-ru) is a Russian language WikiWiki encyclopedia released under the FreeBSD Documentation License license and created in 2003. It uses the MediaWiki software. The name derives from wiki and znanie, which is Russian for knowledge.

In 2006, WikiZnanie added over 1000 articles. As of June, 2007, WikiZnanie has over 109,000 articles (compared with over 196,000 on the Russian Wikipedia). The main part (about 95-98%) of its content comes from Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary, which was published in Imperial Russia in 1890-1906.

WikiZnanie differs from the Wikipedia (and Russian Wikipedia) project by licensing under the BSL DPL (instead of GFDL) and displaying of commercial ads on article pages. It also allows original research. It has servers in Moscow for faster access to pages from Russian territory and uses ads to secure financial support.

The author and webmaster of the project is Andrey Vovk (wznan:user:Vovkav).
