    zastavliat'

    does zastavliat' mean "to hurt" of only "to force"?

    i put it in my vocabulary list under the two definitions but my dictionary doesn't say zastavliat' means "to hurt, to cause pain, to make somebody suffer". can anyone confirm the word has the two definitions?

    thanks in advance

    to force
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    The first definition is "to force", the second one is "to block up"
