|Russian term or phrase: исподволь|
|gradually OR on the quiet|
I see just two interpretations:
1) gradually = slowly (common usage)
2) on the quiet = as исподтишка, незаметно. The 2) is not in good line with dictionaries, but its ethymology may be relevant (ис-под-воль > из-под воли, помимо воли, не будучи замеченным, без волевого контроля).
