The third letter is В
- it looks like our "B", but it is "W" in Russian -
Now it will be difficult: the Russians don't know the letter C.
And: the Latin alphabet has 26 letters, the Russian alphabet has 30 letters
and two especially signs for hard or soft pronunciation.
Beginning today, I will take always the letter, what is on the place of the Latin ABC.
W (в) is for валенки (walenki) - traditional felt boots
Here you can see pictures of them.
I've chosen the traditional song "Bаленки".
Sings the legendary Russian folksinger Lidija Ruslanova.
(She sang this song on April 2 in year1945, in front of the Reichstag in Berlin)

PS: one visitor has corrected me: there is a letter analogous to "C".
That is "Ц" and it stand at the end of alphabet. For me Russian is a foreign language, I know this letter, but I had not thought, that is analogue to our "C".
