In this paper we analyzed some of the phonological rules of Russian loanword adaptation in Persian, on the view of Optimal Theory (OT) (Prince & Smolensky, 1993/2004). It is the first study of phonological process on Russian loanwords adaptation in Persian. By gathering about 50 current Russian loanwords, we selected some of them to analyze. We found out that insertion, prosthesis, no palatalized consonants, no noun ending central low short vowel ["a"] are the phonological processes that occur on Russian loanwords in Persian. (Contains 4 charts, 8 tables, and 13 footnotes.)
