Here are some of the most basic Russian symbols you will find.
Useful charts I have found for translating Russian knitting chart symbols into English. As I find more of these charts I will keep adding them to this post!

Dear Knitting-Bee, please can you help me with 2 Russian knitting symbols that I cannot find anywhere?
It looks like this: V/ across 2 stitches and in both cases it looks like the V is underlined. This is the other symbol: \V also across 2 stitches and once again it looks like the V is underlined.
I can email you the chart if you can let me have an email address.
Thank you so much – I would really appreciate your help.
Best regards – Fiona Naude
