I can't read Cyrillic characters, so please name or describe the letters for me. Thanks.

Добро пожаловать!
Explanation:
To view the Cyrillic letters simply choose from the View menu of your browser the Encoding option, and then select Cyrillic (Windows) or Cyrillic Koi-8 encoding. This is as it is with IE 5, but there must be something of the sort with other browsers (just select the Cyrillic encoding).
