In a recent reply to the above question, it was written that : “there is no G in Russian and H is used instead”.  Actually it’s the other way round.  G is used in Russian where in the Roman alphabet one finds an H, i.e. Herman would be rendered German (hard G) in Russian – in Cyrillic Герман; hologram = голограмма (2 Cyrillic Gs in that word).
