    when its in "ego"...usually at the end of the word. In Polish you pronounce the G in the "ego" endings.

    And in Ukrainian you pronounce it as "h", if I'm not wrong. But you needn't remember all this.

    When it is in ого or его nearly all the time, it is pronounced as v. Basically, it is when it is in the genitive adjectival endings.
    Note these:
    Сегодня [Sevodnya] - This was orginally Сего дня (of this day)

    BUT:
    Немного - the G is a pronounced as G.
