 Alphabet and Spelling Rules
The Russian alphabet is generally effective at conveying the sounds necessary for the correct pronunciation of Russian.
Russian considers the default to be a hard consonant, so the letter -Д- on its own is hard.
This is an important concept, because generally when adding or changing the endings of words in Russian you cannot change the hardness or softness of the affected consonant -- so hard stays hard, and soft stays soft (with the exception of the prepositional case and some dative endings).
