Where did you found product announcements? File http://www.informatic.ru/download/libre.doc shows concrete errors in spelling and grammar with detailed description. Developers who are responsible for this area must corrected that problems!

Your linked article is one.

Please file a different bug report for each bug according to http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport based on that article.
Also please remember that this bug tracker system is English only.
I won't change status of this bug again but still think that link to a product announcement as a description with link to Russian language document is not a valid bug report and won't help non-Russian developers to fix anything.

Okay, I'll try to make new bug reports for each bug.

But I'm shure that developers involved in Russian spelling and grammar checking just have to know Russian language.

It appears that I can not add new words to my dictionary

Every time I use the word "sacramentally" it is underlined in red. When I add it to the dictionary the underlining disappears. However, the next time I use the word "sacramentally" it is underlined in red again.

When I was using version 3.? I used to get an indication that the word was being added to the standard dictionary. I no longer get that feedback.

It worth noting that the dictionary was not updated since 1990s and lack elementary features introduced after ispell: compounding, profanity filtering, Ye/Yo control, etc. The best course of action in this situation would be dropping the bundled dictionary as unmaintainable and delegate the Russian spellcheck functions to 3rd party extensions.

For grammar, the LanguageTool (www.languagetool.org) extension currently has 217 rules for Russian.

Libreoffice does not maintain the bundled dictionary.
Hunspell cannot perform the checks ORFO can.

Use ORFO plugin instead.
Comment 11 Gianni Gelato 2020-05-04 10:10:04 UTC
The grammar and spelling check does not work: after I select the appropriate language (for which the check function is installed) nothing happens. I have included spelling errors in the text to be checked and I would expect suggested alternatives for the spelling. but the windows remains blank.  I am running windows10. On other computers running windows7 Everithing is O.K. If I run theprogram in windows7 compatibility. nothing changes. Cn you help me? Thanks.

For grammar checking you can use LanguageTool. For Russian, LanguageTool-4.8 implements  over 780 grammar checking rules. See https://www.languagetool.org/ru
For spell checking, hyphenation, thesaurus you can use Russian dictionary pack. - 0.4.4  https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/russian-dictionary-pack/0-4.4
