Try adding these lines to the language list:

   elif (lang == 'ru2'): # this variant will use double guillemets for 
both layers of nested quotes
     lead_double = u"\u00ab"
     follow_double = u"\u00bb"
     lead_single = u"\u00ab"
     follow_single = u"\u00bb"

You will need to use single quotes for that internal set, and manually 
remove double adjacent guillemets if needed.
