The file need-characters/ru looks OK, except "k"(I will be glad, if
someone will fix this)
and other character -- cyrillic small ge ("г").
In the font its look like reflecting latin "s". In Russia, that
typeface of a character
is a hand-written character of the ge.
I think, it must be look like other cyrillic characters in the font --
roman type.
I.e. it must be a small copy of capital character ge ("Г")
