Can someone update the Flag Backgrounds userscript for Russian?

A userscript I use all the time is the Flag Backgrounds Userscript and I really like how the Grunge flags look in the background of my learning. I saw Russian was not supported but it doesn't seem he person who made the Userscript is active anymore. Is there anyone else that can take up the mantle and update it for all the upcoming languages and with the newly added Russian?

Link to the userscript is here https://www.duolingo.com/comment/7211430

I was able to make it work!

I know nothing about scripting, but I was curious and opened the script for editing (when looking at Duolingo, click on the little monkey icon, right click on the scripts name in the list) and found out that the script actually already includes a couple of flags for languages that aren't available yet, like Polish, Greek and Icelandic, and also Russian, but there was a second "h" in the "http" in the url to the image, so if you delete it and save the edited script, it displays the Russian flag as a background :)

Sorry, I assumed it's automatically there in the browser toolbar if you have Greasemonkey installed (at least it's there for me in Firefox under Windows), but if you don't see it, then in the Settings/Addons/User scripts look for the 'Duolingo Flag background' script, open Settings and Edit the script.

(I hope you can find it, I'm not sure things are called exactly this way, my browser's interface is Hungarian.)

On the right of the search bar at the top, there should be a black square, with two open circles at the bottom. Click that, and then click Dashboard, and then click "Duolingo flag background" then scroll down until you find "Russian flag" then delete one "h" (because it is "hhttp," so delete one "h" to make it "http") and then save it at the top.

Oh wow! Thanks! Yeah that is really easy. This seems simple enough that we could probably add our own flags if we run out O_o lol
