At any token, the Russian letter for je is this:


In its minuscule form it looks like this:


Don’t get mistaken: it is written just like the English letter E but it’s not e, it’s je.

This letter is used a lot in Russian. For example, it’s even used in the word metro which is m-je-tro in Russian. Try to write this.
