[Wiki Loves Monuments] Russia?

we have 28730 (!) potential images to be added to the list. I added some 
images to a list, but a bot removed them again (?).
Russia has over 3.300 images in 
. These can't be categorized by the bot, because the lists at Wikipedia 
don't contain any links to Commons the bot can use. If an image can't be 
categorized, the bot will try it again the next day. This batch of 
images is really slowing down the categorization process. The whole bot 
run takes already over 16 hours now.

Can someone please tell me what is going on in Russia? Any plans to fix 
it? Please reply because this is affecting other countries and otherwise 
I'm forced to drop Russia.


Ps Russia is not the only country with problems, see
