swisscheesefarts

Vladimir. Skol. Haha


Fin1205

Na zdorov'e! Skål is for those to the upper west - Scandinavia.


swisscheesefarts

I appreciate your enthusiasm but I'm a westerner that literally knows nothing about what you said. Skol is a vodka my phone hates to type and Svedka is another one. And like, Khabib and polar bears are the only other thing I know about your place. I mean that with no disrespect cuz I'd love to see it someday. :)


Fin1205

No worries, amigo. I thought you/we were toasting. Na zdorov'e = to your health; aka cheers in Russian. Skål is cheers in Swedish. Prost = cheers in German. So here's to the friends gathered beneath this roof, may it never fall in and may we never fall out.


LargeHobbit

> Na zdorov'e = to your health; aka cheers in Russian Nope. We do not say that when drinking. No idea where it comes from but it's kind of annoying to see every time. Closest I can think of is "Tvoyo zdorovye", and there isn't really a completely universal word like Prost in German.


Beagly-boo

Na zdrowie is also in Poland.


sirthomasthunder

Probably comes from Polish (na zdrowie) and people just assumed it's Russian.

Ivan


pursuitoffruit

There's a great movie called *Kukushka* set in the Finnish Lapland at the end of WWII. The protagonists are a Lap lady who only speaks Lap, a Soviet soldier who only speaks Russian, and a Finnish soldier who had been taken prisoner by the Nazis and dressed in an SS uniform, and speaks Finnish and a little German. When the Finn meets the Soviet, he introduces himself and tries to communicate that they're on the same side. The Soviet automatically hates the Finn, thinking he's a fascist. IIRC, the conversation goes something like this. -Finn: Comerade, what is your name? -Soviet: Пошёл ты нахуй. (Tr: "Go suck a dick.") -Finn: Pa- pash... Hmm, that's hard to say. I'll just call you Ivan. Every Russian's name is Ivan. For the rest of the movie, the Finn calls the Soviet Ivan, and the Soviet calls the Finn Franz. We go the whole movie not knowing the Soviet's name, and at the very end we find out that it is, indeed Ivan.


GrandmaTakeMeHome_

A great movie! Been ages since I last saw it, I think you made my Saturday night plans for me.


Usmoso

In Metal Gear Solid V you could hear a conversation between two Russian soldiers talking about a guy named Ivan Ivanovitch Ivanov. Can't get more Russian than that
