I am sorry I cannot help. I don't recall ever seeing a Russian course book that
functioned in that manner.

Are you a complete beginner, or have you had some exposure to Russian?

Yes I'm not complete begginer, I know already some things of russian. If not there is a
text as the Orberg's method, I'm interested in getting a method with many exercises and
readings.

Try googling for "Ruso para hispanohablantes". You'll get masses of addresses, some pointing to places where you can download 'sampling' material.

Ørberg originally wrote Lingua Latina for the Naturmetodens Sproginstitut, which created textbooks on the same
method for several languages. There was a course created for Russian (see
here for some of the history), although it is elusive
and I have have no idea of its quality. The Russian course was written by Oleg Koefoed. The closest that I can come
to finding it is a natural method that he wrote for learning the Russian alphabet (The Russian Alphabet by the
Nature Method
), which is in Google books, but without a preview.

Has anyone ever been able to lay hold of any of these books? I think that they exist at least for English, French,
Italian, German, and Russian.

The russian Alphabet by the Nature Method is in Universidad de Granada. About the course
of Oleg Koefoed there is nothing.

I'm a big fan of "Lingua Latina" and the whole i+1 contextual induction method. I just wish there were more enlightened publishers and educational authors out there to take this idea on-board.

Here's a thread with several links suggesting similar inductive texts in French, Spanish, and Greek. Personally, I've only glanced through a couple of Spanish readers in the past, "Poco a poco" and "Lengua Española", both of which seem to follow a similar approach in many respects to Ørberg's Lingua Latina. I've also heard that the Italian version of "Athenaze" (Ancient Greek) employs a similar method.

Blaine Ray also offers a host of easy readers in multiple European languages, which contain lots of repetition and simple phrases that lend themselves to contextual induction. I only have one of his books in Russian: "Бедная Аня". It contains some errors, but on the whole, it's a great reader for beginners.

It is not the same as Lingua Latina, but for gradually absorbing Russian through reading you might check out http://english.franklang.ru/ (remove any spaces).

It presents a Russian text with literal English translation in parentheses every few words, followed by the same passage without the translations. The idea, like Lingua Latina, is to experience reading a language you don't yet properly know.
