I used to be able to read Cyrillic, but I can't any more. But I do think that this doll's name is pronounced Kyusha. I love how the Russian artists show us exactly what the outfit will look on the doll, just in case we can't figure that out on our own. Also, that we're to use scissors to cut everything out. It's interesting that Kyusha has a printed back, but all of her outfits are front facing only.
