Please correct the date display in the control center in Russian, make it abbreviated. Today's date is "Sunday" and we have this big word, so everything is going down in the control center. Please make the date shortened so that the day of the week is not complete, but shortened.

Yeap, changes will be in next ROM update. :)
I was waiting for today's release, after the update, the date remained the same, although I wrote where you dropped the link and made changes, and you said that after the update, this change will take effect, but, unfortunately, this did not happen :(

In the repository, the date is in short format.
In the firmware too (I disassembled the firmware and checked).

But the date is still displayed in long format.

Code:
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_weekday_format">E, d MMMM</string>
If put the resource file com.android.systemui in a specific path (/system/media/theme/default) and restart the device, the date is displayed in short format.

It looks like this is the only way to affect the date display.

The translation contains a short date format, but it does not apply.

And the translation has nothing to do with it.

Why isn't this in short format?

Thanks a lot, it helped, but now after every update I have to do some kind of shenanigans.

For testing, I use the "theme engine", because I don't have the ability to rebuild the apps.
When I was looking for which parameter is changing the date display in Control Center, changes happened only with parameter below.
Code:
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_weekday_format">E, d MMMM</string>
Experiments shows that parameter below affects only the date display in the classical "notification shade".
Code:
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_format">EEEE, d MMMM</string>
In the English locale in the Control Center with these parameters the date format is long:
Code:
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_format">E, MMM d</string>
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_format_12">E, MMM d</string>
...
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_weekday_format">EEEE, MMMM dd</string>
<string name="status_bar_clock_date_weekday_format_12">EEEE, MMMM dd</string>
And I don't understand why the date format changes only through the "theme engine", although the translation has a short date format.

Alternatively, you can use this small patch in TWRP after flashing the ROM.

It should be resolved in the next build, looks like translations were not updated so there are still the old strings there.
Code:
    <string name="status_bar_clock_date_weekday_format">EEEE, d MMMM</string>
    <string name="status_bar_clock_date_weekday_format_12">EEEE, d MMMM</string>
