Ah. Good for you then. And thank you for the explanation.

I wished that Russian would be so simply. While it's generally follow "you can read exactly letters that you see" in most cases, it's not always true. And totally wrong in reverse - we usually write words as they originated, not as they _pronounced_. Belarus, being very close to Russian, more consistent with that.
