    Выполним план великих работ!

    Hello,
    Some guy was wearing a T-shirt with Soviet propaganda on it and wanted me to translate it for him. It said "Выполним план велиних работ." I have never heard of an adjective "velinii" so I assumed they meant "velikii" and gave him that translation. But it didn't look like К at all, looked exactly like H. Is this simply some weird block font, or is there the word "velinii" around that I am unaware of?

    There is no word "велиний" in Russian. But the phrase sounds a little bit odd for me. It's undefinite. "Выполним план на 200%!" or "Выполним пятилетку за 4 года!" sounds much better.

    See, you can barely tell that's a "K." The pic was printed really small on his shirt. Good thing my Russian skills kept me from screwing up on a lowly T-shirt translation...

    Yeah, the "K" looks like the "H" here.
    BTW, Pravit, do you know that a "план" means "cannabis" too?
