Good afternoon in Russian

“Good afternoon” is “Добрый день!” (“Dobriy den’!”) in Russian. You can use this expression before 6 p.m. “Добрый день!” implies a certain degree of sympathy or intimacy.

In official situations you should call a person by his first name and patronymic name like “Dobriy den’, Ivan Ivanovich!”
