Russian Alphabet: Message to Slavs

Authors: Valery P. Dmitriyev
Comments: 4 pages

Russian letters have ancient names which add up to a meaningful text following the alphabet acrophony. The second half of this text, known as Message to Slavs, calls for a translation into modern language, and its interpretation is, generally speaking, ambiguous. The recently accepted translation sounds pompous and perhaps somewhat sanctimonious. Below I give an alternative interpretation of the message's second part, that is formed of sensual images, and someone may see it as scabrous. However that may be, I proceed from the assumption that our ancestors were more honest in their emotions than today's coprolalics.
