What is your opinion about Russian cases? Do you think they are difficult? If you are not sure whether you will be able to learn them or not, don’t worry – you will, it’s just a matter of time.

The main function of the Genitive case is to show possession. In English, it is expressed by the preposition ‘of’ or an apostrophe (‘s).

Это твой карандаш? Нет, это карандаш моего брата.

Это ваша машина? Нет, это машина моей тети.

The genitive is used after negation.

Его нет здесь.

Prepositions that we use with the Genitive case are: от, до, для, из-за, у, без, ради, вокруг, око­ло, мимо
