The Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese mailing lists are the equivalent in those languages of gnucash-user. If you think that there's enough interest in GnuCash in Russia to make such a list worthwhile and you're willing to moderate it and provide support to those users that way, great. 

Those lists are mentioned on the translation page because they're a ready source of native speakers of those languages who are also familiar with GnuCash who can help with interpretation and proof reading. Translation isn't their main focus. I suspect that a list devoted only to translation of a single language would be pretty lonely.
