### Empty space before text in cyrillic

I am working with a Latex document that occasionally contains some words in Russian. For some reason, before those words there is often an empty space that should not be there. Can anyone tell how to get rid of it?

`in the former Soviet Union) where record are denominated archival (sing. \textcyr{arhivny{\u i} dokument}) only if they are considered worth permanent preservation for scientific or other purposes (e.g. Enders, Archivverwaltungslehre, pp. 10-11;\textcyr{Teoriya i praktika arhivnogo dela v SSSR}, pp. 35-36). -- It can be added that in the Russian`

Below is an image showing how the result looks like.

OK, I found a partial fix myself. This should be

`in the former Soviet Union) where record are denominated archival (sing. {\cyr arhivny{\u i} dokument}) only if they are considered worth permanent preservation for scientific or other purposes (e.g. Enders, Archivverwaltungslehre, pp. 10-11;{\cyr Teoriya i praktika arhivnogo dela v SSSR}, pp. 35-36). -- It can be in the Russian`

then the problem disappears in the bibliography, for instance, but NOT in this example.

Hi,

welcome to the forum!

Perhaps post document code that we can test. We cannot see which packages you are using.
