There is 237 human sysops on Commons speaking more than 70 languages. I
find that rather unexpected...
And having a sysop is just a bonus, having a Commons user would be already
very useful and helpful.

We have several (four or five I believe) Russian-speaking Commons admins.

There is 24 sysops with various level of russian (and probably various
level of activity), 11 seems to be native according to
Maybe you can reach them for help...
