The word блин "blin" (pancake) is most popular "substitution" for блядь bl'ad' (cunt). The name of slavic letter Х "kher" is a swear word but not so strong as хуй "huy" (prick, fuck). Its derivatives make pairs херня-хуйня "khern'A-huyn'A" (nuts!,, unknown object, It is nothing; and many other expressions), херовый-хуёвый "kherOvyi-huyOvyi" (bad) and so on.
I like rare phrases ячменна кладь, клёвана гнездорань, кибиточная сила and I can not translate them to English properly
