Hello 

 
We run a small non-profit organisation in the UK, and we have just moved our website from html to wordpress.
 
Does anyone know why we now seem to getting quite a lot of Russian traffic? We getting more Russian traffic now than UK. 
 
This is a list of traffic.
 
1.
ru 36.08%
2.
en-gb 18.56%
3.
en-us 15.67%
4.
ru-ru 9.90%
5.
(not set) 9.69%
 
Our website is https://aont.uk/ and has nothing really for any Russia citizens to read. 
 
Should we be worried about this, or does this sometimes happen?
 
Many thanks in advance for any help.
