RE: Looking for 7189 Russian equavalent

You were given correct info!

Ordinary 6П14П stock is quite mediocre in both sonics and toughness. :>( In truth, it's not much better than outright junk. OTOH, the 6П14П-ЕВ (6p14p-ev), AKA EL84M, is a genuine 7189 equivalent that's tough as nails and its sonics are quite decent. The 6П14П-ЕВ is the only 7189 variant currently being produced and it's downright inexpensive compared to the small amount of NOS available.

This is another example of an old story. You get what you pay for!
