Basic Russian Prepositions

It is something that we use almost in every sentence, but also after every preposition we use specific grammatical case.

For example: without the cat (кот) = без кота (genitive case because of “without”).

Genitive case:

  1. Instead of = вместо
  2. Near = около
  3. Past = мимо
  4. From = от
  5. Without = без

Dative case:

  1. To/toward = к
  2. Along = по

Accusative case:

  1. Through = через
  2. Onto = на (direction)
  3. Into = в (direction)

Instrumental case:

  1. Over = над
  2. Under = под
  3. Between = между
  4. In front of = перед
  5. With = с

Prepositional case:

  1. On = на
  2. In = в
  3. About = о,об
