    The nearest you can get - the conventional transliteration for English "j" into Russian - is "дж" (dzh).

    д is pronounced "d", and ж is pronounced "zh" (like the "zh" in Zhivago, or the "s" in "measure").

    "Jack Jones", for instance, would be "Джек Джонс".

    the sound "j" in Russian is pronounced "y" in English. as in "yacht". the letter which corresponds to the sound "j" is Й. for example "iodine" in Russian would be йод (yot). in this case, the letter "д" is voiceless.

    Source(s): native. i'm afraid the above answerers didn't get what you meant.
