I'm giving a mild attempt to get hold of cyrilic alphabet (capital letters 1st) and what I would need is a "opening" words, like PECTOPAH (sorry caps, but doesnt make sense othewise) actually restorang (you need to thank finnish national railways company for me knowing that one). Would there be other words which would be close to english or other latin origin words which could be used as way to remember letters. Well, finnish words would be ok too, but...

If Finnish word, then СМЕТАНА is smetana :) (Though Finnish smetana and Russian СМЕТАНА are a bit different). Apteekki - АПТЕКА, appelsiini - АПЕЛЬСИН and arbuusi -АРБУЗ, blini - БЛИН, broileri - цыплёнок БРОЙЛЕР. And sometimes Russians call their cats КИСА which is almost exactly kissa (so no wonder why kissa was the first finnish word I learned. Tiikeri on iso kissa.)
Hm, may be a good idea to find any map that is produced in Russian.
If loan words from Latin same in Russian and English: antenna - АНТЕННА, astronomer - АСТРОНОМ (without er part), atom - АТОМ, defect - ДЕФЕКТ, diploma - ДИПЛОМ...

Thanks Bobriha! Map idea was good one too, I think there might one in interveps somewhere.

Edit: Google maps, at least in it's finnish version seem to have names in both alphabets.

I recently found out about the existence of interslavic language. In fact, this is not a language, but something in between the languages of the whole slavic group. It is intuitive to all slavs, and it does not matter what language you know or learning - Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Czech or other. (for me the text looks funny, but completely understandable)
I thought that this could be useful for those who are learning some kind of slavic languages?
Here is a site dedicated to interslavic, and here is an online newspaper, entirely in this amazing language.

The idea looks wonderful! Surely it's very easy to understand when it's in writen form (but i'm sure that we'll all be like Emil trying to understand Mikkel when it'll be in oral form)

Also i looked into articles and...  that's still quite hard rules of grammar... (anyway i'm not sure if any slavic language can be described easier)
