    And how does she intend to make you find the russian words, begining with some english letters which do not exist in russian alphabet?

    OK, let's see...

    А - "Аквариум" the band
    B - Борис Ельцин, the former president
    C - Советский Союз, the former country
    M - мавзолей Ленина..

    Like this???
    Or you have to find some english words, corresponding to Russia?

    A - abomination
    B - barricades

    Poems about June 22nd.

    Тот самый длинный день в году
    С его безоблачной погодой
    Нам выдал общую беду
    На всех, на все четыре года.
    Она такой вдавила след
    И стольких наземь положила,
    Что двадцать лет и тридцать лет
    Живым не верится, что живы.
    А к мертвым, выправив билет,
    Все едет кто-нибудь из близких,
    И время добавляет в списки
    Еще кого-то, кого нет...
    И ставит, ставит обелиски.

    1971
    (Константин Симонов)

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    Рассвет не встал, а рухнул залпами,
    Шатнулся вздыбленной землей,
    Заполыхал рассвет на западе,
    На нас обрушась силой злой.
    Сметал рассвет палаток улицы
    И вырывал бойцов из сна.
    Не все, не все в тот день проснулись,
    Не все узнали, что война.
    А кто успел - живой и яростный
    Дошел, дополз до огневой!
    Рассвет войны, как залп безжалостный –
    Как залп безжалостных живых.

    (Константин Симонов)

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    22 июня

    Не танцуйте сегодня, не пойте.
    В предвечерний задумчивый час
    Молчаливо у окон постойте,
    Вспомяните погибших за нас.
    Там, в толпе, средь любимых,
    влюблённых.
    Средь веселых и крепких ребят,
    Чьи-то тени в пилотках зелёных
    На окраины молча спешат.
    Им нельзя задержаться, остаться –
    Их берёт этот день навсегда,
    На путях сортировочных станций
    Им разлуку трубят поезда.
    Окликать их и звать их – напрасно,
    Не промолвят ни слова в ответ,
    Но с улыбкою грустной и ясной
    Поглядите им пристально вслед.

    You won't understand it. It's a Russian reality, which defies description. No image available, yeah, that's abso-BLOODY-lutely right.
