His Russian was pretty bad. But a Russian accent in English is hard to
get the hang of. I wouldn't even try, myself. Otherwise, I was
generally impressed.

As for the various versions of Britspeak, I'm now satisfied that, WRT
all those friendly British soldiers who attempted, mostly
unsuccessfully, to converse with me, back in the day, it wasn't me. It
was them. Well, actually, I already knew that. Some while ago, 25
years or so, a British dramedy called "Bross" - spelled _Brass_ - was
provided with subtitles for its American audience.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
