Looking at Slavic Languages: Parts of the body

Can you give the names for these in Ukrainian, Russian and the language used in the former Yugoslavia (SCB/BCS/CBS)?

Neck (front)
Neck (nape)
Back (top of the body)

Cryillic is okay. I'm looking for words that would be understood by educated speakers in any age group. Thank-you.

Sorry, I mean "Cyrillic"

I believe that BCS is most PC because it's in alphabetic order.

Neck (front) - vrat
Neck (nape) - potiljak, zatiljak
Back (top of the body) - leđa (ledja)
toe/toes - prst na nozi/prsti na nozi, nožni prst/nožni prsti

Thank-you, Guest. I've started to see BCS as well, but sometimes "our language" or BHS. Finally there are some textbooks discussing this language and its variants/these three languages.

Maybe you will be interested in Bulgarian, too:

Neck (front) - shiya
Neck (nape) - vrat
Back (top of the body) - grub
toe/toes - prust / prusti

Note: U is pronounced like in hut
