OK, reading phonetically I come up with:

Anusol.

Suppository Rectalnie.

Actually, it's more like "anuzol."

And after "rectal suppository" it gets way past my very old and limited Russian knowledge.

Googling for "Russian rectal suppositories" turns up this image.

So I think not that girl is right.

Good god. I bought some old transistors from a guy on Ebay from Moscow and this was the box he put them in. He must have a weird sense of humor.

it's an anti-hemorrhoidal suppository to be more specific =c)

Specifically they're anti-hemorrhoidal suppositories. So I guess that's a plus...

I think the title of the post - now that we know what the product is - is hilarious. Thanx for a good laugh, cropshy.
