The Russian Language
Most Russians in the tourist industry speak English well, but out on the street you'll
encounter a language barrier. In general, young Russians usually know at least a little
halting schoolroom English, while older people speak none at all. A few Russian
phrases go a long way:
Здравствуйте. / Zdravtvuytye.
Привет. / Privyet.
Да. / Da.
Нет. / Nyet.
