Vlad fedorov's vandalism[edit]

Yeltsin has two daughters: Yelena Okulova and Tatiana Dyachenko, married to Valery Okulov and Valenitin Yumashev/Alexey Dyachenko/Vilen Khayrullin. User:Vlad fedorov, please stop adding nonsense to Wikipedia. Colchicum 19:16, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Russian title[edit]

StradivariusTV, please don't change the name. To mark the stress in the article headword is a tradition of Russian dictionaries, but the acute sign is not part of the Russian orthography. The actual name of the newspaper is "Известия" and nothing else. Blind copy-pasting of the bold headwords (instead of the actual titles) of Russian articles is a plague of Wikipedia. Hellerick (talk) 03:01, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Then how else should the stress of the word be indicated? Strad (talk) 06:39, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
And why it should be indicated? It's Russian, not Spanish or Greek. Hellerick (talk) 11:28, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
For the same reason it's indicated on the Russian Wikipedia: because Russian stress is not predictable. It's not Polish or Welsh, where you can predict where the stress goes. The information needs to be there somewhere. Strad (talk) 19:14, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
So what? Most Wikipedia articles don't tell where the stress falls, why we should bother here? Of course, if you want to tell how the word is pronounced, you can do it — with IPA: /ɪzˈvʲestʲɪjə/. Hellerick (talk) 03:01, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Done. Strad (talk) 06:24, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
