There are two s's in Rossiia?

MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) -- Bureaucrats in a Russian region have been sent back to school to improve their spelling and grammar.

Two thousand officials in Russia's Volga River region of Ulyanovsk -- the birthplace of Bolshevik leader Lenin -- had to take a special test on spelling, punctuation and spoken Russian on Thursday after the local governor grew tired of seeing documents full of mistakes.

Said Governor Sergei Morozov, "I've just had enough of bad grammar...I am fed up with mistakes in documents ... if you do not know enough, you have to learn."

Does Russian MS Word not have spellcheck and grammarcheck? (Ern)
