It would be easy if you were writing in Russian and English: the
alphabets are disjoint, and the Russian spellcheck automatically picks
up Russian words only, while the English spellcheck picks up ASCII
letters only.  You could do without any extra work.

But your pair of languages use one same foreign alphabet, and so you
need a kind of markup (you did not tell what notation do you use;
e.g. in HTML you could use the "lang" attribute, <i lang="en">like
this</i>).  It should be possible to select just one language
fragments and hide the others, so as to be able to spellcheck them

Or you could develop a merged dictionary and grammar -- much more
work, and inferior quality; again, that makes sense for a
Russian/English combination (without any loss of quality), but that's
not your case.
