Frhdkazan, Here's the banner: [1], you can add more translations here: [2]. Currently set up it to all the languages listed and English in Russia (with fallback to Russian) and to the 3 languages of Russia for the whole world. Will add more languages to the worldwide campaign when translations are provided. Bezik, Saint Johann, you were not satisfied with Russian banner text, you are welcome to provide your opinion concerning this one. --Base (talk) 02:45, 17 October 2017 (UTC)[reply]
