Hi, What's the difference in the pronunciation, if any, between रूस and روس (Russia) Hindi/Urdu? I found that the former can be romanised as Roos (Hindi) and the latter as Rus (Urdu). What are the actual vowels and are there variants? I suspect that in both languages it's pronounced as /ru:s/ with a long oo as in English "too". Please confirm. Also, what's the gender of Russia in Urdu and Hindi (masculine/feminine)?
