in the list of avaliable languages and keyboard layouts there are several russian keyboards , one of them is called "phonetic", but none of them is really phonet

 

Maybe it is not working properly ?

    I don't understand.  The Russian language is totally phonetic.  A non-phonetic keyboard isn't possible.

    I do, on occasion, use Russian on my iPad and I have no idea what you mean. So, if you want help, the better you can explain what you want, the more likely you are to get that help.

    You have misunderstood the list.  The part of the list under Hardware only works when you have a Hardware keyboard = bluetooth connected to your device.   The screen keyboard only has the options listed under Software.

     

    You have to ask Apple to add Russian Phonetic to the Software list via

    The term "phonetic" applied to a keyboard layout normally means that the symbol which represents the "d" sound in another script is created by typing the "d" key on an English qwerty layout, and so on.   Many non-latin scripts customarily use layouts that differ from that, but now have "phonetic" alternatives which make it easier for users who have learned to type on qwerty.
