Grammar notes[]

Possessives[]

Possessives in Russian are a little bit complicated, but no fear! An explanation is forthcoming!

The 3rd person (his, its, her, their) possessives are unchanging, so they are no different than English.

The other possessives will change endings based on case and gender. It is best to memorize and/or write these down.
