        Please keep technical articles technical.

        And btw; insinuating that anyone complaining about this sort of this is a putinbot is so last year.

    They probably use the American one

    These databases are used by everyone so I'd guess that the Russians primary reference is the American database with the Russian one being more of an Appendix.
