The Russian term for "graded reader" would be something like "Хрестоматия по русскому языку для студентов-иностранцев" or "адаптированные тексты для студентов-иностранцев". Or "книги для чтения" (для студентов-иностранцев) I'm a native speaker so I don't use these. Yet I've Googled it and I found this https://www.kniga.de/knigi/russkiy-yazyk/russkiy-yazyk-...

Yes there are and I'd recommend just using the lists that are used for (older) children. As you might have guessed, the market for second language Dutch learners isn't that big, but there are many people who write children's books.

I'm Hungarian but I don't really think that there are too many graded readers, but I can suggest you the Magyar Elektronikus Könyvtár (MEK, Hungarian Electronic Library), where you can find many books for free and other texts.

By the time I was up to chapter six in ...
