Back when I did the Russian translation, I did it quite hastily, and now have discovered some mistakes. I have also fixed some mistakes other Russian translators may have done.

Don't fear the abundance of commits — I have decided to break them apart for each individual type of change for a better description of it and an easier rollback, if necessary :) You can squash the commits when merging this I can do it for you and overwrite the already pushed commits, no biggie

Things changed in this PR:

  • some strings had a Cyrillic version of the name "Keka" — made sure the English one is used everywhere
  • shortened lots of strings
    • this way they're easier to read
    • this also compensates the fact that Russian words can be very long
  • translated strings that were left untranslated
  • fixed punctuation and orthography errors
  • updated my website (since I have a new domain now)

P.S. I just noticed that Oleg had opened a similar PR (#644); it's similar to what I did, just to a lesser extent and also with some questionable punctuation (no offence whatsoever). Idk how to resolve both of the PRs without causing git conflicts and translation inconsistency 🤔

This increases the readability; the text becomes easier to understand
This includes stuff like punctuation, capitalization and sentence building
It doesn't really clarify the translations, but the end text looks and sounds better
- "Разбивка..." ("Splitting...") became "Разбить..." ("Split")
- "...образа диска" ("Disk image...") became "...образа" ("Image..." / "Volume...")
In accordance to the rules of Russian
