On Monday, September 14, 2020, Russian Wikinews took the 1st string of the title page of the Wikimedia Foundation's international multilingual Internet portal called Wikinews at the address www.wikinews.org. The changes in the design and in the subsequence in the list of the multi-language Wikinews versions at that page were accomplished by Wikimedia users Kaganer и MarcoAurelio.
The sequence of language versions of Wikinews at the page reflects their visit intensity (around the logo in the upper part) and the number of pages in the "main space" (in the list below). On September 1, 2020 Russian Wikinews overtook Serbian Wikinews and became the 1st simultaneously by both parameters.
It is preliminary considered that Russian Wikinews is the first ever Russian language "Wikimedia sister project" to reach the 1st place among all of the language versions of the same sister project. At the time, the biggest Wikimedia sister projects are multi-language Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons. English versions are biggest at Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikiquote and Wikivoyage. At Wikisource the biggest is the Polish language version and at Wikiversity is the German language one.
There are tensions within worldwide Wikimedia community about whether the Wikinews is valid and credible project and whether it's worth to support it.
