Following the results on Russian wikipedia referenced here, an announcement of an a/b test on Russian Wikipedia should be sufficient prior to such a test.

Asking for review and then I'll see if we can ask a volunteer translator for assistance.
@CKoerner_WMF, just an update: analysis on Hovercards instrumentation code is still ongoing in T141922: [ 8 hours ] Spike: Analyze Hovercards and general instrumentation code for potential sources of unexpected data outcomes, and a likely remediation of that is likely a blocker before we would initiate the second A/B test. We should know during this current week roughly what that means schedule-wise.
I just requested translation of the message to Russian. I'll post on the Russian village pump whenever we have a translation (or in English if one is not provided) and are ready to announce with the community.
Post has been translated to Russian. Ready to post when you all are ready. Let me know and I'll make it so.
Announcement and request for questions has been posted to Russian Wikipedia.
