While most Russian letters have a direct English counterpart, there still is a number of caveats.
The Russian letter ы is conventionally transliterated as y, but that is not entirely correct. The sound that this letter represents is something between ee and oo, or something similar to the e in the word roses. There is no single English letter or a combination of letters that can accurately display this, which is why such a convention is needed. In any other case the transliterated letter y should be pronounced as in the word yacht.
Another convention is related to the letters е, ё, ю, and я. When at the beginning of a word or after a vowel, they are pronounced as y in the word yacht plus a vowel (English e, o, oo or a respectively). When positioned after a consonant, that consonatn is softened (palatalized), and only the vowel is pronounced.
