    Depending on use

    Москва
    Москву
    Москвы
    Москве
    Москвой
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Use Москва in the subject of a sentence.
    Use Москву in the object of a sentence.
    Gender does not matter.

    What if she wants to say "The Moscow Kremlin" or "The Moscow State Circus"

    If the name of the city is москва (Mos-kva)(?) than why the ... is it written
    Mos-cow?

    ???
    I mean.... aren't all we all elsewhere saying it wrong?

    If so...why does it continue is my question.

    Then she would have to use Московский and gender of the following noun would matter. I was just giving a couple of examples.

    москва is Russian
    Moscow is English
    That's just the way it is. I don't know how the kva got replaced by cow in the translation.

    BTW, I missread the reason for Meran's comment "Ehm, I'm a she...." Sorry about that.

    Maybe, just maybe, they thought the ква meant корова and therefore translated it as cow?!??!??

    OK, so how do you think they spell the city Cologne in German?

    It's a lucky city that can have its name translated/transliterated and still come out close to correct sounding!
