How to: ask someone to stop , and where
Prepared with the help of Ruslingua

Oстановите, пожалуйста...

The verb is остановить (to stop). The form used here is the imperative (used to give an instruction: останови - singular, остановите - plural/polite).

Where you might need to stop:

ќстановите, пожалуйста...
Е у входа (at the entrance)
Е у выхода (at the exit)
Е у этого магазина (at this shop here)
Е у того магазина (at that shop there)
Е у школы (at the school)
Е у моего дома (at my house)
Е у метро (at the metro)
nb: у takes the genitive case

More specifically:

ќстановите, пожалуйстаЕ
Е перед светофором (before the traffic lights) (instr.)
Е перед перекрЄстком (before the crossroads)
Е после светофора (after the traffic lights)
Е после перекрЄстка (after the crossroads)
Е у перехода (near the pedestrian underpass)
Е у арки (near the archway)
Е у щита (by the billboard)
Е на углу (on the corner) (prep.)
Е на следующей улице справа (by the next street on the right)

Or more vaguely:

ќстановите, пожалуйстаЕ
Е слева (on the left)
Е справа (on the right)
Е через 20 метров (in 20 metres)
Е здесь (here)
Е там (there)

Maybe just a quick stop:

ќстановите, пожалуйстаЕ
Е на секунду (for a moment)
Е не надолго (not for long)
Е € сбегаю за сигаретами (IТll just run out to get cigarettes)
Е € сбегаю положить деньги на телефон (IТll just run out to put money on my phone)
