Next time you’re traveling or just chattin’ in Russia with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:

• Explicit sex terms
• Raw swear words


Dirty Russian teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of Russia:

About The Authors

Igor Fisun is a native of Kiev, Ukraine, which, in moments of nationalist pride, he prefers to spell "Kyiv." He is a former student of Kiev PTU, where he quickly abandoned all interest in ever holding down a real job and instead embarked upon a career in freelance engraving. His native languages are Russian and Ukrainian, and he hopes someday to learn English well enough to talk his way out of a traffic ticket. His interests include cooking, Japanese art, cheap wine, and pissing people off on internet forums. He is ridiculously proud of his orchid collection.
