## russ – LaTeX in Russian, without babel

The package aims to facilitate Russian typesetting (based on input using MicroSoft Code Page 1251). Russian hyphenation is selected, and various mathematical commands are set up in Russian style.

Furthermore all Cyrillic letters’ catcodes are set to “letter”, so that commands with Cyrillic letters in their names may be defined.
