current russian stemmer seems doesn't treat adjective endings like:
'nogo', 'nomu', 'nyi' ...., so
veslopidnogo (bicycle) -> velosipedn~ogo
velosipednyi -> velosipedn~yi
 while better to have
velosipednogo -> velosiped~nogo
velosipednyi ->  velosiped~nyi

I'm not a linguist, so  I don't know how properly distinguish
'nogo' from 'ogo' etc. Probably there is some grammar rules.
