Meaning 2 branch (of a river) Восточное плечо реки Немени, впадающее в Курской залив, называется Руса, которое имя, конечно, носит на себе по варягам-россам (М. В. Ломоносов "Древняя Российская история от начала российского народа до кончины Великого Князя Ярослава Первого или до 1054 года", первая публикация 1766)
"The eastern shoulder of the Nemen' River, which flows into the Kurskoj Bay, is called Rusa, which, of course, bears the name on itself by the Varangians-Russians. (Mikhail Lomonosov "Ancient Russian history from the beginning of the Russian nation until the death of grand prince Yaroslav the First or until 1054", first publication 1766)"
