Countries in Russian
One of the first questions you’ll be asked when meeting someone in a Russian-speaking country is ‘Where are you from?’ – Откуда вы? (atkooda vy?).
Whether you’re from Canada or Colombia, this lesson on countries in Russian will prepare you for these questions and help you ask them in return and understand the answer!
