Bye / Paka in Russian

The Russian version of “Bye!” is “Paka!” (“Пока!”). It’s an informal way of saying “Goodbye!”. You can say “Paka!” to your friend or acquaintance. “Paka” is a short version of “Good-bye! Till we meet again.”

So it’s a vernacular word. You mean “Be healthy for the time being. Then we will see.” by that. It’s kind of a superstitious expression.
