I don't read Buddhism, so I don't know what this site is saying, but it should have some Buddhist resources in Russian. Good luck!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.

I think, LY, you must mean I don't read Russian.
But, I could be wrong. I have been wrong before.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Good resource for this topic:

http://dharma.org.ru/board/topic340.html

I had a quick look at the common Russian translation by Toporov comparing it to that by Thanissaro and they are quite different. Early on for example, Thanissaro uses heedful where Russian has "serious" - quite different. Heedful while not having a direct Russian translation, seems closer to attentive than serious.

Also where Ven T uses phenomena, Russian sticks to "dhammas" - a bit less friendly to beginners.

Russian, Buddhism, whatever. Same thing.
