Hi Maarten,

I am not sure whether this works for Russian uploads but if yes I would 
strongly suggest to disable this feature: The coordinates found in the 
"lists" on the Russian Wikipedia are not the coordinates of the 
monuments, but the coordinates of centers of some towns (sometimes not 
connected to the monument in any way).
