Just a quick question: which Romanization system does Duo use? Is it any of the ones listed here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanization_of_Russian ? Or something of a combination of all the common equivalences?

A really dodgy one ;)

Seriously, I'm not sure - it makes my eyes bleed (slight exaggeration... slight...) so if it accidentally gets switched on I switch it back ASAP, but from what I've seen it seems to be kind of strange. Some of the equivalencies seem to be based more on how a letter works than how it's said, and it's fairly inconsistent.
