Which one was undefined?

copy cont-usr.ori into cont-usr.tex and uncomment the line
% \installlanguage [\s!ru] [\c!state=\v!start] % russian

The version may not be more than 2 months old (so yes, take that as
"it has to be the latest one").

(Try "ctxtools --update". If that one doesn't work your version
probably is too old. Download cont-tmf.zip, unzip and replace the old
files and do texexec --make --all.)
