The following file:
==========================================
\documentclass[a4paper,titlepage]
\usepackage[koi8-r]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english,russian]{babel}
\begin{document}

We could use Russian here...

\end{document}

try

   \documentclass[a4paper,titlepage]{article}

instead (this is LaTeX 2e)

Comment 2 Alexander L. Belikoff 1999-04-04 06:39:59 EDT
(re-entered, since e-mail to Bugzilla got it all wrong)


Doesn't the suggestion to use Latex2e mode mean LaTeX 2.09
compatibility is broken?

Also, the package lacks Russian hyphenation patterns. If you are
willing, I'll point you to the proper file to take for that.
Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-04-07 13:07:59 EDT
Fixed in tetex-0.9-16 and later. The initial test case was still
invalid, though.
