Has anyone read the Hunt For Красный Октябрь By Tom Clancy, or seen the film? It's awesome!

In the russian i can read/sort of write.

There are two Russian alphabets, the current one and the soviet one. I can read the current(which was pre-russian and is used across eastern europe) but not soviet. My grandmother taught me.

japanese 丹 1 letter,
what's your point?
also my roommate is Kirghiz and can speak russian fluently.
and yes, red really has 7 letters in russian.

all I know in russian,however, is pretty much limited to being able to say fart, cheers and vodka.

Is he like the Kurgan in Highlander?

Wikipedia wrote:The Kurgan - whose birth-name remains unknown - was born in what is now Russia on the border of the Caspian Sea. His tribe, the Kurgans, Juan Ramírez notes, were infamous for their cruelty, and were known to "toss children into pits full of starved dogs, and watch them fight [for the] meat" for amusement.

I think pretty well, all things considered.
came as a pretty big shock though, and he's quite worried about it.
he's also trying to earn money so he can support them as best as he can. which is fairly hard as he doesn't speak dutch.
