One of the longest words in Russian would be “тетрагидропиранилциклопентилтетрагидропиридопиридиновые”. It has 55 letters. But that’s from chemistry, and I think there are long words in many languages.
If we talk about what is often used in russian, there are enough words that have 20-30 letters :sunglasses:
