Zenitar-M2S Questions

So I got a Zenitar M2s (M42) 50 F2.0 Lens Reviews - Russian and Zenitar Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database as a part of my recent bulk purchase. The review says that the lens has a resolution between 60/30 and 68/44. Is this expressed in the form center/border in terms of lp/mm ? Does the Russians lie about their specs? Because it seems that this lens has nearly twice the resolution of the Canon EF 50/1.8 lens and want to make sure I am interpreting the numbers correctly.
