I believe he's talking about ژ.

Okay, I'm not sure if it is the same in Russian or French, it does sound similair to French because I don't either language. But you can read about the letter here:

अहिंसा/เจ
True Love: (hi)
TAC 2017: (hi) (ja) (ko)

I think maybe some (most?) people merge it with "j."
