this does not really help you, but: I tried your file and the files at
the Russian wiki page, and they did not work with my minimal
installation for linux either. However, they all worked well with
TeXLive 2004 with a not too old ConTeXt version. Since I partly wrote
that wiki page and only tried it with my own TeXLive 2004 it may not
be helping other people too much.

Sorry for not being able to help more. I wish I could...
