    YOU, the respected form

    In English, there's no respected form for "you", unlike Spanish and
    German, which have respected form of YOU, they are Usted and Sie
    respectively.

    I wonder if Italian and Russian also have respected form of you. Is
    there any other European language like English which has no respected
    form of you?

    Thanks!
