    please transribe this short audio clip (two words)

    please transcribe the following very short audio file to Russian text:

    http://drop.io/hbguzr8

    I feel like I hear a 'v' (russian в) sound in in the middle of this, but I'm not sure if it's really there because the automated translation websites (like translate.google.com) do not show this sound being there.

    No, there is no "v" in there. She says "...усских денег". The first word is probably "русских" with the "р" cut off.

    Thank you. The very beginning of the word somehow got cut off, but your response has led me to conclude you are correct. When she slows the pronunciation down, you definitely hear the х sound at the end of the first word, but I guess my ears interpret it differently at normal speed.

    btw pay attention, that the X is voiced here because it goes in front of the voiced (Д in денег) consonant.
    And the second E in Денег is reduced to the level of almost non-existance.
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.
