Explanation:
"pree - VYET"

Here is the English pronunciation, if you can't read Cyrillic.

This is informal. A more formal greeting would be

"ZDRAST - vui - tye"

Или (Привет), или (Алло!)


Explanation:
Привет (Pree-VYET) is the customary, greet-on-the-street greeting, along with здравствуйте (ZDRAS-tyeh). When speaking on the telephone, Алло (Al-YO) is the norm. Hope this helps.
