вал-март (Vahl-Mart)

So, is Wal-Mart really coming to Russia? Since the announcement in late 2008 not much has been heard.

Inquiring minds want to know. We’re sitting here practing how to say it in Russian. As the Russian Cyrillic doesn’t have a W like in English, the closest we can get is the “V” sound which looks like this: B.

We know, that is a “bee” in English. Yes, Russian does have a “beh” (but its not sounded like a “bee”) but this, B, is not it.

So, until Vahl-Mart makes up their minds, we’re here waiting.

вал-март = Wal-Mart. That is as close as we can get.
