In fact, it's a Latinized form of the German transliteration of the Russian

Those w's should be pronunciamentated as v's."

Nit picking correction: Виноградов would be pronounced Vinogradof, not
vinogradov. Russian de-voices consonants at the ends of words. I'm not
really sure how they should be pronunciamentated.  :  )
