Erroneous addition to main directors

Due to a known gap between terminologies as formulated in Hollywood and Soviet Union, a lot of Post-Soviet countries still use (thankfully it started to steadily decline) what essentially translates as "director" or "second director" for what effectively is first assistant director. It causes a lot of confustion when people add or correct titles assistant directors get inserted into main directorial credits for little to no reason with no atribute or as "co-director", "second director" etc. I've corrected a few instances of that before whenever I've stumbled upon them, but a recent mess I can't quite correct by myself, as corrections get declined. 

Declined from #221006-010139-938000 is deletion of an additional "director", who is not only a first assistant director, but added instance also has an incorrect first name. Situation with two "co-directors" in #221006-005701-591000 (one of which is the same person who was erroneously added in the previous case, but this time under a correct name) is pretty much identical: there are no co-directors in that title, just a mistranslation and misattribution of existing assistant director credits.
