Russian Particle якобы

December 13, 2018 | Tags: Russian particles

Did you know that the Russian participle якобы means “supposedly”, “allegedly” or “reportedly”? It is used to express  that the information you use in your speech comes from another person and you don’t necessarily believe it.

For example,

Иногда из некоторых самолетов якобы тайно выгружаются грузы. Sometimes cargo is reportedly unloaded from certain aircraft in secret.
