Russian. A Slavic language which is related to Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Polish and Ukrainian. The mother tongue of Borat. The best thing about it is the word for beer Pivo is used in all Slavic languages. However, languages like Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian and Serbian write in Cyrillic script so the word would look like this “пиво”.
