Top radical is 'rain' (雨). Bottom radical is 'road' (路), which here is used phonetically to express 'round/globular'. Dew drops are like globular bits of rain. This character was borrowed for its sound to express 'Russia'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: ''Rain on Russian road revealed to be dew.''
