Excellent idea, Upliner! Well done. Perhaps you can make a somewhat
arbitrary distinction based on population? Surely there is a
population database for towns in Russia. You may have a bit of
correcting to do for speling erorrs, and some missing entries, but you
ought to be able to get to a 90% solution, which is good enough for a
start. You can label the missing ones as "village". That way they
won't render on a large scale map. Sooner or later somebody who lives
there will notice their town is missing, and will set the correct size.
