Can anyone here read Russian?

I've been seeing a lot of pictures floating around the web of bears saying something in russian... this seems to be some "All your base..." equivalent, but I have no idea what the bears are saying... Here's an example:


WTF are the bears saying!? I've seen shirts and mugs with the stupid bear saying the same thing. It's driving me nuts!

I can read some Russian and I think that's Ukrainian.

So, Otter concensus is that it is Ukrainian for "Red X".

Bear #1: Does a bear shit in the woods?
Bear #2: I know you do, mama!

If it is Russian, the left one misspells beautiful the right one misspells hello. Also possible it is a language similar to Russian that has completely different meanings.

Yeah, I'm beginning to think that they're misspellings of Russian "krasavchik" (cutey, I think) & "privyet" (hello).

He's asking the female bear if she wants to come to bed with him.

Those words, as is, aren't in my pretty decent Russian dictionary. Maybe they're misspellings meant to represent the Russian equivalent of a hillbilly/redneck accent or something. Just guessing. I'm pretty sure they're not Bulgarian either (alphabet nearly identical to Russian). Dunno about it being Serbian, but strongly doubt it.
