comment “Best is enemy of the good” (Russian idiom/saying)
@Barrie England - thanks for your answer, it's interesting to know after asking for English equivalent of this expression that not only English has almost the same expression, but also that most likely both English and Russian picked this up from French... Variant with "perfect/perfection" for some reason reminded me a joke which roughly translated goes something like this: "In hell for perfectionists there is no brim and no fire, but only slightly asymmetrically standing dented cauldrons."

comment Usage/meaning of “brattery”
Russian to English dictionary, it was mentioned when I look for "children's" translation. As I newer saw/heard this one before it sparked my interest. And the same dictionary which gave me this word doesn't have an article/entry for "brattery"... So I see it is kind of stuff you can find in OED or something similar only :)

@Josh61 Not waste, rather that author doesn't care about publicity for some reason or writes for himself... No wate connotation here...
