I'm not sure why the Russian sound package does not include the necessary sound files for all of the Russian voicemail sounds, but as listed in app_voicemail, these are at a minimum needed:

* If you use it for Russian and other slavic languages, you will need these additional sound files:
*  vm-newn "novoye" (singular, neuter)
*  vm-newx "novikh" (counting plural form, genative plural)
*  vm-message "sobsheniye" (singular form)
*  vm-messagex1 "sobsheniya" (first counting plural form, genative singular)
*  vm-messagex2 "sobsheniy" (second counting plural form, genative plural)
*  digits/1n "odno" (neuter singular for phrases such as "one message" or "thirty one messages")
*  digits/2n "dva" (neuter singular)

Note that the Russian sound files were provided by Maxim Topal.  You may contact him about this issue at:

I've acknowledged this issue, as the v1.0 Russian sound files do not have the sound files listed above.  However, the Russian sounds are community supported, and will have to be provided by either Maxim Topal or someone else from the community.

An updated release of Russian IVR files from http://www.ivrvoice.ru is ready for commit to the sources. It can be downloaded from github:

An announce about new release was posted half an year ago at Russian's Asterisk Q&A:
And no bugs were reported.

These are almost ready to go in. I had to fix some discrepancies in the files.

We are waiting for ASTERISK-19721 to make a new sounds release at the same time. Should be very soon.

Fixed in trunk of sounds revision 233.

Next core sounds release including this update should be 1.4.24, but that will wait on ASTERISK-19721. That'll probably happen within next week or so.

1.4.24 is now available at http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/sounds/releases/
