If you see Cyrillic both on the right and left sides in the same way, you can read all Russian texts at this site without any additional russification.

If you see that Cyrillic at the left part of the table is not equal to the Cyrillic of the right part and you ARE NOT Windows 95/98 or Windows NT/2000 user, please visit some specialized site for russification (see for example links at the LearningRussian Directory Catalog ).

If you see that Cyrillic at the left part of the table is not equal to the Cyrillic of the right part and you ARE Windows 95/98 or Windows NT/2000 user, try to follow recommendations below.
