Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello. I'm viewing the map of Kiev, and there are two variants of object names - in Ukrainian language (by default) and in Russian (name:ru). How I can see the Russian names in my web-browser? Or is there any way to override default language settings? I'm trying also maperetive with the option "text : @any([[name:ru]], name)" at the configuration file - but no chance, the names is still Ukrainian, not Russian.

On openstreetmap.org there is no map in Russian language, but the default name for every feature is rendered (the value in the name-tag). I don't know if there is a rendering in Russian available, but it is possible. If there is none, you could make one yourself.

There is already a similar question here, with code for maperitive, where the answer suggests you might have to "(make sure it's a tab indent and not spaces)".
