    In Russian (and other Cyrillic alphabets in former Soviet Union)
    typographic tradition the double-angle quotation marks (guillemotleft and
    guillemotright) usually have shape different from French ones: inner
    angles have less size. Look at attachments. Now for Russian texts are
    used special fonts (typically in CP1251 encoding) with similar glyphs
    instead of ordinary guillemotleft and guillemotright. There is no way to place
    the both variants in an unicode font.
