Hi marcoqf,

For Windows: 

Click Edit > Preferences > Tools will show where additional dictionaries are installed, and change be changed/opened. Similar to the above if you create a locale folder xx-XX and paste the aff/dic files for spelling and hyphenation in here the app should pick them up.

You just need to find a .dic Russian dictionary file and place it in the folder mentioned in Preferences :) 

With the Mac version, i believe we access dictionaries from the OS which i suspect is why it's already showing for you on Mac :)

You should be able to use the Russian Hunspell dictionaries provided for LibreOffice. You will need the two .dic files (one for spelling, one for hyphenation) and the .aff file. Just put them in the directory that you create as @stokerg indicated.
