до свидания

See these strange letters? They’re Russian. It reads, “dasvidaniya,” which is Russian for “till we meet again.”

Russian, an East Slavic language, is the principal language spoken in Russia and its former Soviet republics, like Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and more. It’s the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia and is spoken by nearly 300 million people. It is the most widely spoken of the Slavic languages and the largest native language in Europe. Interesting, isn't it?
