Default To maloutim: both languages use Cyrillic

Hi Marie-Louise,
I'm sure there is much that overlap between Ukrainian, Russian and perhaps Polish too. For both Russian and Ukrainian, they are both written in Cyrillic. While I can't understand the meaning of words, it is not too difficult to learn to pronounce Cyrillic written words. The top line and bottom line are very different sounding.

I didn't even realize that the sign is pointing at least 3 directions with the same text! So not only does it appear to be stating the same place with two different names, but that place is in every direction! No wonder I walked a mile the wrong way one day (although I did enjoy the walk).
Dan
