    Can anyone help with this?

    In 1994-1995, I met a good friend who was a Russian soldier serving in Zagreb, Croatia. When our deployment ended, we exchanged information, and promised to keep in touch. Unfortunately, I never could understand his contact information. I ran across it last night and want to try again to locate him. I thought a good Russian speaking forum would be a good place to start???

    His name is Sergei.

    Here is what was written:
    AA54CA19-742F-47AE-812B-7B347683DB9F.jpg

    Sorry if this isn’t the place for such a question. I hope I’m not violating any forum rules by posting here. Thanks so much for any information anyone can provide.

    I can’t even really search the internet because I don’t have a Russian keyboard to type most of that.

    His name seems like Rudic Sergey, however it's written unclear.

    Wow! Thanks so much! I’m so glad I finally thought to ask for help. Was there any other information besides the address? I’m reading about his town now. My mother just told me that my great, great grand-parents (last name: Kuhlman) immigrated from Prussia. I’m going to find out more about that.

    I’d like to send a postcard to see if by chance anyone still living there would know of him. Would anyone here know how to write the address for mailing?

    Address is: Russia, Kaliningrad Oblast, Sovetsk town, Shevchenko street, house 3A, apartment 58
    7-59-97 seems like stationary phone number local to town. It needs country number + oblast code to make call from different country. Seems like 997-01161 is it, but I am not sure. Anyway cell phones inside Russia have different format.
    If we search "how to call to Sovetsk" we can find this: Телефонный код Советска, код города Советск, Как позвонить в Советск, 40161
    It states you need to dial next number for make call from another country:
    00 7 40161 XXXXX where XXXXX is 5-digit number inside Sovetsk. Seems legit, you could try it.

    Alex80 wrote you a translated address, however it is written for Russian postmen, so I advice you to address your card that way:

    Rudic Sergey
    ul. Shevchenko, 3A/58
    Sovetsk
    Kaliningradskaya Oblast
    RUSSIA (РОССИЯ)
    238700

    It would be the most fitable format.
    However, you can still use Alex80's format and it will be sent.

    Also you can ask in your postcard if they know where Sergey lives. New inhabitants can know it, if he does not live there anymore. It is better to write that part in Russian.
