New words in Russian

by Don  

Trans-national languages, especially English keep penetrating Russian more and more. Kind of drives me crazy. Here's a list of words that have caught my eye so far, and this isn't even counting the Italian coffee/Starbuck's vocabulary that is now ubiquitous.

RussianEnglish pronunciationMeaning
мохи́тоmoe-HEE-toemojito (but w/o alcohol)
флэт уайтflet oo-itea latte with less foam
айс-тиeyes-teeiced tea

I'll update this table regularly as I run across new ones.
