Verbs of Motion + the prefix У

The prefix У- adds the meaning that is antonymous to the one added by the prefix ПРИ-. So this one is all about leaving, moving away from an object:

Ты уже уходишь? А я только поставил чайник. (You are leaving already? I just put the kettle on.)

Он уехал из города быстро и тихо, как будто от чего-то бежал. (He left the city quikly and quietly, as if he was running from something.)

Поезд ушёл. (The train left. - also used idiomatically to mean that one had missed their chance.)


See you in class of Russian or Ukrainian as foreign online :)
